"By artists, for artists."
Monterey Peninsula Art Foundation was founded by Dick Crispo, Rudolfo Nava, Ilene Tuttle, and Kay Cline in Dick Crispo's living room in the mid 1970s. Dick had his lawyer write up articles of incorporation and they applied for a 501c3 status forming MPAF which was achieved by 1981. Click here for the complete story of the founding of MPAF.
Membership in MPAF
Membership in MPAF is $20 per year and is open to anyone interested in art whether an artist or not. Each member receives a portfolio page on this website. If you are interested in becoming a member please contact us. By long tradition, MPAF does not jury an artist's work and believes that artists must have an opportunity to show their work. Membership in MPAF is not a membership in the gallery on Cannery Row. The gallery waiting list is closed. Applications for gallery space are not being accepted at the present time.
Gallery on Cannery Row
MPAF sponsors a limited membership co-op gallery at the historic 425 Cannery Row address in Monterey. View the 1952 film "Clash by Night" featuring Marilyn Monroe on our gallery page.
