Our featured artist for the month of July is Kenny Gardiner. When Kenny was growing up his Aunt Alice, who had a shop on Cannery Row would walk along the Monterey coastline collecting jade and other stones. That is where his interest in jewelry began. Being of Cherokee heritage, he is drawn towards turquoise and loves making turquoise and sterling silver jewelry. Custom fitting is a major part of his jewelry making. . Ken's reception will be held on Friday July 3, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Salinas Valley Art Gallery, 218 Main Street, Old Town, Salinas. Refreshments will be served, and admission is free. If you have any questions you may call us at: (831) 422-4261.
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.
