You need at least 20 minutes to see everything. I believe this place is shared amongst several local artists; each one has a corner of the store. So, there is definitely a variety of style in their art pieces. You can go in and enjoy the art like I did. I might go back and buy something that got stuck... More

So many different artists and mediums, this is my "go to" place for gift shopping. They do a nice job on the presentation for gift boxes as well. Tip: If you are local, cruise the gallery, find the artists you like, then come back for August studio sale or December holiday sale to find some fabulous art at great prices.

The Artery is a well established co-op of local artists, with work ranging from paintings to ceramics, to jewelry. The quality is generally very high, and surprisingly so in such a small town. However, many of the artists were students at UC Davis, where the art department is renowned for its faculty and students; among the faculty are painters such... More

The Artery is a great place to go to purchase unique and special gifts for people. It is artist-run so the money actually goes to the artists rather than to a middleman. Many items that are very affordable, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind.

I LOVE visiting the Artery when I need to buy a gift for a discerning friend or loved one. What I like most is that the choices to feature local artists provide a great array of items to suit traditionalists as well as the avant garde. Incredible paintings, affordably priced - photographic art, fabric art, figurines, pottery, jewelry, scarves -... More

It was a regular small town art store. You can find some unique designs and interesting jewelry, but it is really small and you probably spend 10-15 minutes most.

The Artery in Davis has an excellent variety of quality types of art, from ceramics and jewelry to photography and weavings, all created by local Davis artists. There is a judging process to be included in the Cooperative, and the Artery is seriously one of the best art co-ops I've ever seen. It's where I go first to look for... More

Support local artists and have a walk through this shop. Things are nicely arranged according to the artist and the side room has an ever changing display. Watch for the excellent sale days.
