Jones & Terwilliger Galleries is the personal vision of founders Barbara Jones and Patricia Terwilliger, opening their first gallery in the heart of Carmel’s art colony on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula in1997. It quickly became a destination for art collectors, which inspired them to open a large gallery on El Paseo in Palm Desert, California in 2005.
Jones & Terwilliger Galleries showcases 60 acclaimed American and International artists, ranging from classical realism, impressionism, contemporary to abstract expressionism. The balance of mixing different styles that complement each other has become one of our trademarks, as well as our customer service. Relationships have always been a priority for us with our artists, clients, and gallery friends.
We are known to integrate new works with your existing collection, or assist with a new homeowner or business. Our staff is available for home viewing in California and we work with art handlers for installations. We are skilled at assessing your home to help you find a perfect painting or sculpture.
Both the Carmel and Palm Desert locations are known for distinctive personalities, and you will always be greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable fine art consultant. Our Carmel gallery features regional artists capturing the majestic beauty of central California. Our Palm Desert gallery not only features artists who paint the dramatic desert landscape of the Coachella Valley but also a large collection of premiere stone sculptors from Zimbabwe, Africa.
Many of the artists have been part of our gallery family for 27 years and we add new talent often. Both galleries host artist exhibitions, and our Palm Desert gallery hosts openings during First Friday Artwalks November through April each season, alongside the Classic Car Cruise on El Paseo.
We have a passion for art and how it touches our souls. We are grateful for the talented artists that we partner with and our clients that support our galleries. We look forward to seeing you soon.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso
