We stopped here on the way up the coast. We were intrigued by the wire sculpture in the window. Inside was a broad variety of wood work, metal sculpture, paintings etc. Some things moderately prices, others quite expensive (and worth it, many of these items were one of a kind). The second floor gallery had more paintings and an incredible... More

We've always enjoyed browsing here on our trips to Mendocino. It has got to the point where we seek our favourite craftspeople and see what they're up to! At times we've bought small items; this is about to change: I ordered a couple of side tables for our 30th anniversary, and will surprise my husband in a couple of weeks!!

This gallery has a wide range of beautiful objects, very skillfully displayed. Not all of it is local, but much of it carries the spirit of the California coast.

This is one of our favorite places: hand-made sculptures, furniture, wovens, jewelry, dishes, utensils, and paintings, and photography. Always managed to find a treasure to take home. Be sure to go upstairs, if nothing but for the view!

In fact, this Gallery is my wife's annual pilgrimage-destination, a principal reason for going to Mendocino. We always stay in the West Cottage at the Point Cabrillo Light Station, and spend what we save on room-rental on fine crafts here.

This large gallery has a tremendous variety of art in a bright light-filled space. They do specialize (as you might expect) in work that reflects the north coast and the rural feel of Mendocino. Wonderfully helpful folks are clearly involved in the community. With the famous Art Center a few blocks away, this is really an extension of the town's... More
