the logo for the Art Gallery Napa ValleyMy art groove keeps moving!  I’m excited to announce that you can now find my art at the Art Gallery Napa Valley.  I’ve been on the waiting list and finally received the good news that they had a space for me.  The Art Gallery is located at 1307 First Street in beautiful downtown Napa, CA.  The gallery consists of a coop of over 50 local artists who specialize in a variety of media including painting, photography, monotypes, jewelry, fused glass, woodworking, textiles and woodwork.  All participating artists are members of the Art Association Napa Valley.

The Art Gallery Napa Valley is truly a gem in the heart of downtown Napa.  It’s one of my go-to places to buy gifts because I can buy original, one-of-a-kind art that always delights my recipients. There is a full range of prices and you can walk out having an easy day on the pocket book, or you can splurge and buy a special piece for that special place.

If you’re in Napa, come check out the Gallery! Here’s what I’m currently showing:
