Our featured artist for the month of April is Sandra Saldivar. Many years ago Sandra walked into a bead shop and left "hooked" on beading. Her love of beading design has lead her to travel from San Francisco to San Diego for classes, and as far away as Maui, Hawaii and San Antonio, Texas to continue learning an art form that touches her heart. She has an intuitive sense of how to blend colors and combine exquisite crystals, pearls, gemstones and glass to create beautiful works of art. Her style tends to be classic rather than trendy and casual to elegant. Her goal with each piece is to make the wearer look and feel beautiful. Sandra's reception will be held Friday, April 3, 2015, from 5p.m. to 8p.m. at the gallery, 218 Main Street, Old Town Salinas. Refreshments will be served and admission is free. Should you have any questions, you may contact the gallery. (831) 422-4162.
Salinas Valley Art Gallery participates in the Salinas First Friday Art Walk. Each month, our featured artist for the month is introduced with a reception in the Gallery between 5 and 8 PM. Finger Food and Beverages are provided and you will have a chance to meet many of the Gallery's artists and learn more about their works and their techniques.
If you know of an artist (or are an artist) looking for additional exposure and sales, we accept applications for membership in the gallery at any time and review portfolios semi-annually to fill any openings available.
Hours: 10-5 Mon-Sat -> 10-2 Sun - Until 8PM on First Friday
We accept most major credit cards and cash of course. We do have a special layaway program to make it easier to afford that special piece. Finally, our artists usually have additional work not on display currently in the gallery. Most artists can bring in additional work for your review by appointment - all sold through the gallery.
