My husband and I love stopping into the vault gallery every time we visit Cambria. We purchase art there more than anywhere. The owner is always welcoming if she’s there. We love this place so much.

Usually little beach town galleries leaving you unimpressed. I mean, how many pieces of driftwood seagulls and bad seascape paintings does a person want to look at? Well, I'm pleased to say the Vault is different. It's a little bit cutting edge, the art is...More

This place remains worthy of a visit on essentially every visit to Cambria — one of the better galleries on the Central Coast. The art offered here is unique, very diverse and high end. The owner is very knowledgeable about each artist and their work.

A nice variety of art objects to see. There is a beautiful selection of photographic prints of Humming Birds on aluminum in the gallery now, along with other objects of art not to be missed!

laylon, the owner, seems to like art with a sense of humor or satire. We love practically everything in this gallery, including the outdoor sculptures. The gallery also offers some less expensive but high quality pieces of art including jewelry and ceramics.

We love visiting this gallery. They have the most unique art. Sometimes paintings, sometimes sculptures, sometimes vintage jewelry that has been turned into a great big HOT PINK smiley face! Never a dull moment and always a site to see! Love The Vault Gallery!!!

In my mind, the best gallery in town showing a range of quality artists with some high price tags to match. But often have not felt that welcomed by the staff.
