Place To Buy Art

Pavilions, 552 Pavilions Lane, Sacramento; (916) 920-9562;

Ventana is Sacramento’s version of a Carmel art gallery. Located in the Pavilions shopping center, this upscale shop is all plush carpeting, soft music and dusky gray walls hung with art by well-known international artists such as Sam Park, Leonard Wren, Fabian Perez, Dmitri Danish, Csaba Markus, Royo, Itzchak Tarkay and Igor Medvedev. The emphasis here is on European landscapes, although the gallery also carries sculpture by Frederick Hart and Paige Bradley. Owner Andrea Kissell also offers full-service art consulting, in-home and in-office presentations, complimentary appraisals, framing and art-buying advice.
