Salinas Valley Art Gallery, a locally owned and operated cooperative, located at 218 Main Street, Old Town, Salinas, is featuring the works of Nancy Olaeta for the month of March. Nancy is an accomplished artist in two mediums, oil and fused glass. Her favorite subject in school was always art. She is the daughter of an artist, so came by her talent naturally. Her inspiration comes from her gardens and some of the beautiful places she has visited over the years. She usually starts with a photo she has taken, then captures on canvas that which attracted her to the subject matter. In 1995 she took a class in glass fusing and became "hooked". She has since taken more classes in fused glass, and has succeeded in transferring her knowledge of painting into her beautiful glass pieces. Nancy's reception will be celebrated Friday, March 7, 2014, at Salinas Valley Art Gallery from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Refreshments will be served and admission is free. If you have any questions please contact the gallery at (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.

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.
