In addition to visiting one of the most eclectic art and crafts galleries you’ll ever see, you can also fortify yourself at its vegetarian Café Ono. And if you can’t bear to leave, know there is a private, one-bedroom redwood “artist’s cottage” on site that’s available for rent (see volcanoartistcottage.com).
The gallery’s small, rambling rooms are packed full of major works by local artists of renown, tiny inexpensive collectibles, and everything in between. The interesting collection includes glass-blown pieces, wood and metal work, ceramics, masks, jewelry, books and household items – an extensive collection of local artists’ work that’s fun to browse. There couldn’t be more ambiance, and the owner, artist Ira Ono, is a delight.
Open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
