Very nice gardens to enjoy upon entering; take time to enjoy the outside as much as the inside; nice collections and helpful staff that were available to offer suggestions of things to do in the area. Good variety of artists are in the gallery.

Tiny town, but a big and thriving art complex. Very right for Mendocino! Various art endeavors here from sculpture to ceramics to painting. A part of the theater/art complex that has grown up over the last 40+ years in Mendocino!
