About the John Natsoulas Gallery…
“No gallery in California does more for the arts than the John Natsoulas Gallery.”
Poet and past President of the NEA
“Visitors from out of state might never expect to find one of Northern California’s most ambitious galleries in the university town of Davis . . . But for some years art dealer John Natsoulas has been staging significant shows devoted to less-studied aspects of West Coast art and documenting them with well-made catalogues.”
“Those for whom the San Francisco Beat phenomenon is merely the stuff of legend can get a taste of the real thing in an all-day conference sponsored by the John Natsoulas Gallery in Davis.”
-Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle
"After an unfettered conference in Davis draws attention to West Coast practitioners, a Getty Institute Panel will look at L.A.'s role"”
Los Angeles Times
““I don’t know of anyone else who is doing this level of interdisciplinary collaboration between the visual, musical and literary arts. It’s the great work.”
-Joyce Jenkins, Poetry Flash
