I personally think of painting when I hear the word “art gallery,” but the truth of the matter is there is much more to one than just paintings. You will find displays of sculptures, drawings and sometimes even live art. Now that is something that I consider really amazing.
Listed below are a few of the galleries near where I live in California, and if you ever get the chance to visit them, I think you will consider it time well spent.
