Local Artists, Local Materials, Local Color

Refrigerator magnets with the name of a location soon lose their pall, even ironically. A true keepsake of a visit should actually reflect the spirit of the place, and what better choice than a piece of art or handcrafted item made by a local artist or artisan? Local Color is a gallery that offers a wide selection of pieces in a range of styles and prices that will allow you to take home a tangible memory of Big Sur.

Artwork, including oils, watercolors and prints, are available, all from local artists. In addition, you'll find handcrafted jewelry made with local materials, such as jade or sea glass. You can also choose from redwood bowls, ceramics, knitted items and clothing. It's a fun place and well worth the stop.
