First time to Bergamot Station and it was a great place to view art exhibits. The lighting is good and the variety of exhibits is refreshing.

We visited on 12/30 and most of the private galleries and the Santa Monica Museum of Art were closed until next week or the week after. The ones that we're open were fascinating.

Galleries predominantly represent artist producing art and home decor ornaments made from reused textiles. Downside is little variety. Artists work is too similar. There are other activities -- such as a speaker series and Writers Bootcamp -- happening at Bergamot Station.

Not easy to find if you dont live in LA but really worth the visit if you like art, photos, paintings, etc. You will have a great choice of art galleries. One of the best? Shoshana Blank's.

There are a bunch of interesting galleries here, some are exceptional- with excellent choice of art and photos. There is also a nice restaurant to have lunch. Bergamot is very accessible and parking is easy. It makes for a nice couple of hours diversion.

See Lois Lambert Gallery--her store has a glorious assortment of unique and hilarious gifts. The last bohemian bastion of LA--long may it live

Once a month or so, I join my friends at Bergamot Station for lunch and visits to the various galleries. Generally, we share sandwiches and order one their fine soups and visit on the outside patio. Great Fun and the price is right.

Fun gallery openings. Function art gallery is full of really funky stuff from chairs made of wine corks and baby food jars to chandeliers made with glass bottles.

So easy to enjoy- fantastic galleries. Not overwhelming It is right near the free way so v easy to access and it is NOT an all day long event but rather a really special way to spend time enjoying wonderful art. I go alone- special time

Love this spot. It is an authentic artists colony. Lots of unique galleries all in one spot. They are all very different. Love to spend day going to each one. And the Santa Monica Museum of Art is here too. Plenty of parking and a little cafe on site. Check hours before coming.
