At 8,500 square feet, the Paul Mahder Gallery in Healdsburg, California, is the largest single-floor art gallery in the entire state. In September 2014, professional fine art photographer and businessman Paul Mahder decided to expand his San Francisco gallery and opened a second location in the heart of California’s wine country. Today, the gallery on Healdsburg Avenue is often referred to as a “mini museum” and offers premier west coast exhibitions, custom framing, and an elegant space for private and public service events. The next time you stay at the Honor Mansion, take a quick 5-minute drive to the Paul Mahder Gallery where you can admire spectacular pieces of art that you won’t find anywhere else.

Exhibitions & Artists
Known for its extensive collection of contemporary works, the Paul Mahder Gallery features paintings, sculptures, photography, drawings, and more by renowned national and international artists. One of the most eye-catching pieces is the “Text 28” installation by artist Christina LaSala. About 12 feet wide and 10 feet high, this permanent display uses tinted water in zip-closure plastic bags and represents “the genetic sequence for the ability to see a broader range of color in the yellow spectrum”. Be sure to check the gallery website for more information on past, current, and future exhibitions.
If you choose to purchase a work of art, the framing technicians at the Paul Mahder Gallery have almost two decades of design experience and will work with you to create the perfect frame for your new piece. They even offer complimentary on-site consultations, professional design guidance, and pick up, delivery, and installation. Plus, all of the work is done in-house and is fully insured for your peace of mind. For more information on custom framing, visit the Paul Mahder Framing website.
When it’s time to head out, don’t forget to stop by and say hello to the gallery’s mascot, Zeus! This beautiful Congo African gray parrot is known for being shy if you stand too close, but if you give him space, he’ll spout an array of interesting sounds and phrases – including the first six lines of the “to be or not to be” monologue from Shakespeare’s Hamlet! The Paul Mahder Gallery is open Wednesday through Monday from 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM.
