10 West is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara just 1/2 block from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The gallery specializes in Santa Barbara and regional artists. The artwork tends toward non-traditional genres with various degrees of abstraction and surrealism, joined by depictions of peaceful koi ponds, impressionist landscapes and figurative work. You'll find oil and acrylic paintings, ceramic vessels and sculpture, bronze and stone sculpture, textural wall pieces and contemporary pottery from Mata Ortiz, Mexico, which is on display from mid November through mid January.

A juried, artist-owned cooperative with 28 current members, 10 West Gallery is directed by founder, Jan Ziegler.
