In 2001, Nancy Gardner opened the Mendocino Jewelry Studio which features Gardner's work along with an impressive selection of other local accomplished jewelers, painters, ceramicists, and stained glass artists. As Gardner says "to exhibit work in my shop, first one has to be local, second one has to be good".
A longtime connection with the Mendocino Coast arts community provides her with a vast and varied array of work to curate and display for sale. "This area has a large number of very talented people, it’s been a mecca for artists for more than 60 years. I am honored to have a gallery where I can exhibit some of their work".
