The best kept secret in the Bay Area is Art of Ricardo Gallery! The gallery features original art by nine local artists from the Bay Area and other artistic items from around the world. The Gallery was founded in 2009 by Ricardo and Marcia Gomez to showcase Ricardo’s colorful and vibrant acrylic paintings. Other artists featured in the gallery work in various media such as acrylics, oils, watercolor, and multi-media.
