Each month the Gallery features the works of a well known, accomplished guest artist.
The Salinas Valley Art Gallery is featuring the work of guest art photographer Jim Messer from March 27 to April 30. Jim’s photography is rooted in a fulfilling sense of peace and calm derived from Eastern philosophy. Recently his efforts have been directed toward exploring new areas of photography, especially the realms of abstraction, and pictorialism. This exhibit is an intimate look at life in suburban Salinas viewed through those lenses.
Jim's reception will be held on Friday, April 1, from 5-8 p.m., at the gallery, 218 Main Street, Old Town, Salinas. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. If you have any questions you may 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.
