Mission Statement

A vibrant artistic community does
not function in a vacuum. Its artists generally engage with the community and other artists, writers, poets, photographers and scientists to create a more meaningful society and culture. The gallery serves as a forum for this often overlooked world on the Monterey Peninsula and California in general.


. . . Hauk Fine Arts is a charming multi-level gallery strong in early California painters as well as contemporary stars’’ –

Richard Alleman –

“When you view at painting at the gallery it will tell you its story – and the stories are always fascinating”
