A Few Words About Us

The Valley Art Gallery, an artist's cooperative, has been serving the valley since 1976. The goal of our founders forty plus years ago was to bring fine art to the Salinas Valley and the Central Coast. Many years later, Valley Art Gallery still brings the best in Steinbeck Country fine art to visitors and residents alike.

Special Services

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.
