Our featured artist for the month of October is Gordon Mayfield. Gordon has been painting landscapes of the wilderness for nearly 20 years. His home and studio are located in San Benancio Canyon. He paints almost exclusively in water color, basing his subject matter on his experiences in the natural world--hiking, and backpacking. Many influences have helped to form his art,his foremost mentor being Dale Laitinen. His works are currently on display at the Zen Gallery in San Juan Bautista and Salinas Valley Art Gallery. Gordon's reception will be held at the Salinas Valley Art Gallery, 218 Main Street, Old Town, Salinas, Friday October 3, 2014 from five to eight p.m. Admission is free and there will be refreshments served. If you should have any questions you may contact us 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.

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.
