My favorite paintings are of California. The gigantic Yosemite picture is my favorite! They have so many different types of paintings. Something for everyone! Some mind provoking, some whimsical. They bring in special events too.

I love the Crocker. What a great place to spend time. They have a great gallery of ever changing art. Plus they host numerous social events- including a monthly ArtMix! I bought a membership and I've gotten every pennies worth!
