Topanga Canyon Gallery artists approach Valentines Day in their usual quirky, multifaceted fashion. The result is a February exhibit at the gallery that includes everything from traditional hearts and flowers representational art to contemporary work that suggests, tantalizes and stretches the imagination.
If youre looking for a special gift for that special someone in your life, check us out, urges Karen Saviskas, chair of the February exhibit committee. Instead of a fattening box of chocolates, consider giving a work of eye candy. Art wont melt in your mouth but it will be a lasting memento of your affection and a visual treat for years to come. Our flowers dont die in a few days!

We dont just offer art that hangs on the wall, either. There is an intriguing collection of sculpture and other 3D pieces, plus original, one-of-a-kind jewelry, ceramics, gourds, striking photographs and digital art.
