We stopped at the Norman Lowell Gallery because several people had recommended it. What a treat! He was there and greeted us. There was a steady stream of visitors while we were there. He and his wife homesteaded there and he has been painting Alaska all these years. His work is magnificent. Most of it is not for sale, but... More

My husband and I were visiting friends in Homer and they told us about the Norman Lowell Gallery. It's easy to miss since it's not really advertised but we searched it out as we made the drive from Homer back to Anchorage. I am so glad we did! What a fantastic experience! This wonderfully talented man is so prolific with... More

It is easy to drive down the highway without stopping for this attraction. It is not advertised. I learned about the gallery from other travelers. Norman and his wife homesteaded in Alaska from Iowa in 1958. They built their home and raised 5 children at this location. When Norman wasn't providing for his family he would travel the area making... More

My husband and I own a lodge on the Kasilof River here in Alaska. We always tell our guests who are venturing down to Homer that they MUST stop at mile 161 and see the Norman Lowell gallery. The talent this wonderful man has will literally take your breath away. For those visitors who have never seen the beauty of... More

Another don't miss. Incredible talent. It is hard to believe this studio is in Anchor Point, AK but then again it is another reason why it is so amazing. Norman was in the studio and was very helpful. Loved the whole setting.

Wow! This incredibly beautiful space is part museum, part art gallery, and part celebration of nature's glory and one man's peerless ability to capture and enhance it. Mr. Lowell's style is part naturalistic and part impressionistic, and the colors and scale of some of these paintings will take your breath away. I'm not really a fan of paintings done with... More

If you're traveling to Homer, do NOT miss this studio and gallery. Norman Lowell and his wife, Libby, have lived a fascinating life in Alaska and celebrated his beautiful paintings (oil, watercolors and other mediums) by constructing an immense, beautiful gallery to showcase them. The gallery also highlights exquisite displays of artwork from Alaska. The Lowells have gifted the showing... More

This is a must see in Homer, Alaska. Mr. Lowell, who is likely to greet you at the door in his wheel-chair, captures the light, space, and color of Alaska perfectly. I am a semi-professional photographer and in my dreams I capture the essence of a landscape with the power and beauty of Mr. Lowell’s brush. Be advised, you will... More
