About the Muse

The Chartreuse Muse opened its doors as a contemporary gallery in Modesto in 2002. In September of 2007, The Muse moved to its new location at 918 10th Street, right across from the Gallo Center and into the heart of downtown Modesto. The Muse offers works in a wide range of media from talented local and regional artists. Whether you’re interested in painting, ceramics, glasswork, photography, metalwork, or handcrafted jewelry, you’ll find unique artwork with a modern sensibility at The Muse.

The Chartreuse Muse is also an Art School! Muse teachers as well as visiting guest artists offer a curriculum to suit all interests of students.  These students range from preschool to adults. All skill levels are welcome! Did we forget to mention we also offer clay classes? 

In 2017 The Muse added the Clay Studio, a fully equipped workshop dedicated solely to clay arts, potter’s wheels, slab rollers, wet cabinets, a kiln, and more. The Clay Studio offers classes and studio use for all types of artists in a new creative space that is designed to inspire.
