Gabrielle Goes West: Art Crawling in Santa Monica

Moving across the country means a chance to explore a whole new city! InΒ Gabrielle Goes West, I’ll chronicle my adventures as I get to know Los Angeles and the west coast…

I spent Saturday at the Bergamot Station art galleries in Santa Monica, immersing myself in artworks of all genres. Next to the LA Metro’s Bergamot Station is a maze of converted warehouses that now house numerous artists’ works. From 1875 to 1953, the trolley station was a stop on the Red Line running from Los Angeles to the Santa Monica Pier. It’s now part of the new LA Metro system.

The best part about Bergamot is that you can walk into all of the galleries for free and get your fill of creative expression. The station is a great way to feel cultured and immerse yourself in art for a few hours without having to pay the price of a museum admission or driving around from gallery to gallery. I left feeling inspired by an afternoon well-spent.
