j. gallery features fine art in downtown Santa Rosa
Offering an eclectic mix of original works in a variety of mediums by mostly contemporary artists, the new j. gallery in downtown Santa Rosa is the culmination of a more than 30-year dream for owner Judy Reilly.
From the moment Reilly enrolled in an art appreciation course in college she was hooked on art as an observer, appreciator, marketer, and patron. After working for various galleries through the years, mainly in San Francisco, Reilly recently retired from her “day” career at a private reading school. Holding firm to her belief that art feeds our souls and enriches our lives, she immediately began making her dream of owning her own gallery into a reality.
The j. gallery showcases works by Chet Amyx, Gary Janis, James Keeton, Naomi Marino, Teresa Onoda, Manika Rossa, and Nancy Willis. The gallery is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday; 12-5 p.m. Sunday; and by appointment (closed Monday).
