Alvarado Gallery

Local Arts and Artists in the Monterey Conference Center

 The City of Monterey presents rotating art exhibits at the Alvarado Gallery in the Monterey Conference Center. The Gallery provides an opportunity for residents and visitors to celebrate the rich artistic and cultural heritage of the Monterey area. A call for artwork is usually conducted each fall.





The City of Monterey, Museums and Cultural Arts Commission, and the Monterey Conference Center are pleased to announce the upcoming Alvarado Gallery exhibit "Monterey – Timeless Beauty" featuring the Central Coast Art Association, a non-profit founded in 1967 to promote interest in and appreciation of art on the Monterey Peninsula.

This exhibit will highlight nine artists whose artwork ranges from oils to watercolors, acrylics to mixed media and displays the timeless beauty of the Monterey Peninsula.  Each artist brings their individual visions of this area with vibrant colors and eclectic views.  Many are award-winning painters with local roots and knowledge of the history of Monterey.  Their ability to capture the special unseen areas of our Peninsula will delight and inspire you.  Roadsides, valleys, seascapes and architecture, their subject matter is diverse.

Please join us for an artist opening on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM with light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artists.

The exhibit will be on display September 20, 2019 to November 25, 2019 in the Alvarado Gallery, located at the Monterey Conference Center, One Portola Plaza.
