Bay Area fans of classic California photography are advised to visit the current exhibition at the Monterey Museum of Art. No cheesy seascapes here.  Ansel Adams and Edward Weston’s mastery of the medium is well-represented in a show that runs until next January. There is a permanent collection strong on early California painting (from 1875) as well as fine examples of works from Rockwell Kent and Michael Kenna among others. It is actually two museums, one downtown and one a few blocks away at La Mirada, a charming, restored Mexican adobe surrounded by rose gardens. Admission $5.
