We drop by this center often when we visit Gualala because it has a meditative ambiance. The grounds are artfully maintained and interesting and the gallery has a new exhibit each time we visit. The building is fun to explore.

GAC shows a variety of local and regional artists. The area is a Mecca for artists and craftspeople, so there is always something good going on. The setting is beautiful, so just sitting on the patio is good!
