Venture Gallery presents the work of local wildlife painter Debbie Griest, our featured artist for August. During the exhibition, the Marine Mammal Center will receive 50% of net proceeds from sales of Debbie's work.
Debbie Griest’s passion to create art is inspired by her respect and appreciation for wildlife and nature. She builds on her travel experiences through the savannas of Africa, the jungles of Central and South America, and the natural habitats of California and the US. When out in nature, Debbie is drawn to the drama of light and shadow, the emotions and feelings evoked by a particular setting, and the unique personality or presence of an animal observed.
Venture Gallery is now open daily, 10am-6pm. Debbie Griest's artwork will be featured through August 2021. Venture Gallery is located at 260 Alvarado Street in Downtown Old Monterey. Visit our website to shop online for work by our local artists.
