Voted Best Art Experience in the Napa Valley!
Established in 1984, Jessel Gallery began in three small rooms within the former Hedgeside Whiskey Distillery, which looked out upon vacant fields. Today, we fill the entire 6500 sq ft building at the hub of a thriving Napa neighborhood. But some things never change. Jessel Gallery has always offered beautiful art in varied media in a wide range of prices to fit anyone's budget. We're known for our friendly, personal and warm customer service, and our exquisite surroundings.
Visitors repeatedly return, marveling at the homey atmosphere and beauty, as well as the acceptance they feel in stepping into Jessel's world. With her animal-friendly, kid-friendly policy, Jessel Gallery proves that high-quality art can be coupled with any heart-filled space.
Guests are encouraged to take their time, to sit on the deck amidst hand-tended plants and flowers, to (borrowing from the title of one of her beautifully written and illustrated books), Slow Down. Once you visit, it's easy to see why Jessel Gallery was voted the best art experience in the Napa Valley.
Art Shows and Installations
Jessel Gallery features a mix of long-established contributing artists as well as those new, emerging, and established guest artists. Every month or two the gallery hosts a reception to share new creators' work. In addition to individual, regional, and national artists, shows by groups such as the Napa Photographic Society, Napa Valley Open Studios, and Brown Street Gallery (adults with developmental disabilities) have been showcased. The Gallery features Fine Art, Hand Made Crafts, Gifts, Books, Jewelry, and Consignment and New Clothing including Handmade Wearable Art.
Classes, Workshops and More
If you should be so inspired by all the creative expression you experience in the gallery, Jessel Miller offers ongoing classes in watercolor and acrylics held weekly. Private Classes for visiting groups and birthday celebration or family gatherings are also available by appointment. Visit our Events page or contact us for more information.
It is my intention to share the wealth of knowledge of my many talented artists, so in the next year the Jessel Gallery will be offering Weekend or Day Long Art Workshops by Daniel Mundy, Michael Fitzpatrick and other visiting Artists. Sign up for our newsletter to receive information about upcoming Workshops.
Jessel also offers what she calls The WOW Moment. If you are visiting the valley for a wedding, conference or family experience and wish to record the moment for your guests Jessel or one of her other Plein Air Artists will attend the event and paint the view. This is an exciting and fascinating way to record important milestones. Contact us for more information.
