A space for art in Pacifica: Top-notch artists, community all welcome at Oceana Art Gallery
May 25, 2013, 05:00 AM By Samantha Weigel Daily Journal correspondent
A drive along the scenic Highway 1 takes you through a variety of coastal towns, but people don’t always go off the beaten path to truly explore these tucked away communities. But the people behind Pacifica’s Oceana Art Gallery hope to change that.
“We want this to be a place for Pacificans and for people from all over the Bay Area to come and be part of our community,” said Elizabeth Marshall, co-director of the Oceana Art Gallery.
The Oceana Art Gallery is located next to the Oceana Market, among several empty storefronts. Elizabeth Marshall, her mother Kay Marshall and Rig Terrell are all co-directors of the revamped location. Vasu Narayanan, owner of the Oceana Market, is the driving force behind the gallery’s fruition.
