Gallery 9 of Los Altos serves as the oldest art gallery in Los Altos. It was originally established in 1970 in Menlo Park by a cooperative group of 9 artists — hence its name.
Gallery 9 moved to Los Altos in 1973 and to this day some of the earliest members are still with the Gallery. Today's membership now stands at about thirty and consists of a diverse group of talented local artists who work in various media, including painting, printmaking, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture and weaving.
Nature Gallery, featuring "nature as a work of art”, displays products made of minerals and fossils.
The items in the gallery all have a geologic story to tell and help us maintain perspective in the crazy, fast-paced world in which we live.
Specialty items include tiny magnetite crystals for kids, a wine bar made of 400 million year-old fossils, museum-quality meteorites, Native American Zuni carvings, and 220 million year-old petrified wood tables. Explore one of a kind jewelry designed by local and internationally known artists, including the 87Rocks Collection by Nature Gallery’s Carol Garsten. Nature Gallery was established in 1987 and moved to Los Altos eight years ago from Palo Alto.
