The gallery was founded in 1991 by its namesake, Christopher Bell. His landmark monuments in Pacific Grove, “Life at the Top” (sea otter) and “Butterfly Kids” are well known to honor the unique nature and culture of our community.
Located in the heart of historical Monterey, the gallery overlooks the magnificent Monterey Bay and lovely historical plaza. Visitors enjoy the various original buildings and museums of California’s first capitol, and stop by our gallery for equally original, interesting art.
Robert and Helen Olson had been area residents for over 20 years when they purchased the gallery in 2004. Helen is an artist herself and had the same fervent interest of the much loved Christopher Bell – to offer truly original fine quality art in the greatest variety of mediums and prices. Robert had expanded his hobby of minerals and fossils into a website and series of shows. People had come to appreciate their business, Nature’s Collectibles, for the dependability of carefully selected good quality minerals, fossils, gemstone carvings and large decorative pieces.
Now Nature’s Collectibles has married beautifully with the equally exceptional arts in Christopher Bell Gallery. Long and short time patrons of the gallery are delighted by art and artists they’ve enjoyed for many years such as Gordon Stennett carved birds, Tim Cotterill (Frogman) sculptures and of course Christopher Bell bronzes. Everyone seems to love the unique combination of fascinating handmade arts, always seeing something new, and always finding something they like.
Helen and Bob, together with their gracious and knowledgable employees, are very pleased to carry on the exceptional tradition of Christopher Bell Gallery.
Come in and visit us, or give us a call any time. You will be amazed at the reasonably priced and unique fine art ranging from paintings to carvings, glass to pottery, scrimshaw and jewelry. We look forward to hearing from you!
