Current exhibit | Location and Hours


The City of Monterey, Museums and Cultural Arts Commission, and the Monterey Conference Center are pleased to present "Monterey - In Color" featuring artists Laureen Weaver and Lud Oliviera. Both artists are inspired by the environment around us and experiement with bold colors to invoke sensations from our beautiful surroundings.

During his retirement, Lud Oliviera has devoted his time to painting, providing him with a chance to venture into a world of pictorial artistic expression. Laureen Weaver is inspired by the everyday life and experiences of living in community. It is said a picture captures a thousand words; but she believes her paintings tell the story of the community and the people that live here.

Please join us for the artists' opening on Friday, May 3, 2019 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm with light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artists.

The exhibit will be on display May 3, 2019 to July 7, 2019 in the Alvarado Gallery, located at the Monterey Conference Center, One Portola Plaza.
