ART GALLERY HISTORY AND ARCHITECTURE
The art museum is located in the city of San Gabriel, and comprises nearly 6000 square feet of floor space.
With its gleaming cobblestone floors, sky high A-frame vaulted ceilings
and solid brick inlays, the building on 818 Las Tunas has a captivating history. Today in its most recent incarnation,
it provides the quintessential backdrop for a gallery of fine Asian art and antiquities.
It was built in 1885, and served as a blacksmith for all of the early settlers, cattle hands and rancheros along the corridor of the
San Gabriel river and within just a stone*s throw from San Gabriel Mission. It was located along the banks of the river where cattle hands
and settlers could bring their horses to drink. The massive A frame of the building and vaulted ceilings enabled horses to be brought in to be
re-shoed or fitted for bits and bridles. The cobblestone floors and the thick meticulously crafted brick inlays speak of a bygone era when life
on a frontier town was new. Because of its grand scale and beautiful architectural bones, the space has served as a Blacksmith, a Century
Motor Sales showroom (April 18,1955 Los Angeles Times, page 35), a Cambridge^ Furniture store (April 20, 1969 Los Angeles Times, page SG2)
and a general store. 818 Las Tunas was most recently a home and office supply store before its current owner looked at its rising beams,
generous wall space and magnificently crafted stone work and knew that his precious gallery art collections had eventually found a home.
History continues to live on in a remarkable setting.
The San Gabriel area is an art place itself. The missionaries who built the place are responsible for the numerous artifacts found in the area.
From buildings to playhouses, pavements, walls, bells, halls, shops and churches, the buildings are unique and well crafted. The San Gabriel area
has a multi-faceted background that is rich in beauty and history. The structures in the area depict the culture and heritage of those who inhabited
the area long ago. For instance, the Bell Tower, which holds six bells, tells a story of major occurrences in history. 818 Las Tunas is the perfect
location for an art gallery as the buildings and surroundings reinforce what the art communicate. The Los Angeles government preserved the
buildings and artifacts in San Gabriel Mission District Neighborhood since the ancient works do tell an important part of Los Angeles city.
There is need to preserve the art and area so that future generations can understand what led to the growth of Los Angeles town.
