Set Current Location
This museum is actually located in two different places, not too far from one another and in the oldest neighborhood of Monterey. At its primary location in an old adobe, the museum recently exhibited works in Chinese ceramics and textiles, paintings of Monterey 1910-1950, and bronzes by Charles Russell. The other location in the Civic Center (corner of Via Mirada and Fremont Street) has exhibited charcoal drawings by Tobin Keller, masks from Mexico and archaic vessels from Asia. This is one small town museum worth visiting.
Walk amidst a spectacular display of contemporary works of art at Green Chalk Contemporary. Aimed at promoting contemporary art, this gallery features works by budding local artists, as well as a collection of exhibits by famous artists from around the world. Its fine mix of local and international works of art, creates a rather diverse display of different cultures. Gracing this gallery are spectacular exhibits by renowned artists such as Anne Marchand, Richard Wittaker, Francie Hester and Tom Nakashima.
This space is housed in an old building that dates back to 1904 and usually has about ten major art openings per year. Art and ballet classes are offered throughout the year and there are eighteen different studios in the building, each one showcasing a different artist's work. The organization is committed to establishing a connection between the Pacific Grove community and the many upcoming artists from the surrounding area. Several other events take place here, from poetry readings to concerts and other exhibits.
