Tillie Gorts is Monterey's most popular and longest lasting "almost vegetarian" restaurant originally founded by Gil Tortalini. The image of watermelon and a hot winter drink suggests that it is a warm cozy spot in the winter, and a refreshing fun spot in the summer. Simple food, and to the point. They also used the image for their menus, business cards, and T-Shirts until the restaurant was sold.

Tilly Gorts

  • From his studio/gallery at 807 Cannery Row, Monterey, CA. Jeffrey Sax has been producing and selling his work to a worldwide audience. His serigraphs from the 1980's were hand printed, one color at a time, by master printers (primarily David Smith of Seriphics). Edition series were usually limited to 500 prints (or less) and there are no originals. The artist working with a photographer created transparent overlays which were then burned onto screens by the printer. This integrity factor combined with Jeff's artistry has earned him representation in museums alongside artists like Warhol, Picasso, and Rauschenberg.
