This sweet little art center has a variety of different artists represented and in a charming way. The gal who we talked to was informative and not pushy. We ended up buying a few unique pieces that inspired us. Worth the stop.

This is a stop worth your time. There are a large number of very good artist and artisans in the Mendicino area. This art center is a very active one and as a result it has elevated itself beyond Just Another Local Art Association Exibit....More
