Many beautiful prints of a master landscape photographer are on display at this very nice gallery. While all the photos are for sale you are left to absorb the images without anyone bothering you. If you are a photographer visiting the east side of the Sierras you owe it to yourself to stop here.

There's not too much to do in Bishop, so this was a treat. Photographs are worth seeing, and while they are for sale (and not cheap) no one bothers you.

I've been a fan of the work of the Rowells for years. This was a first time visit to the gallery and it is even more stunning up close and personal. If you are in Bishop, this is a must stop for any fan of outdoor (especially mountain) photography. Best of all, it's free!

Photographs by the great Galen Rowell, tragically killed in a small plane accident, piloted by his wife. Excellent photos, be sure and walk through here.

I came here based on the Yelp reviews even though it wasn't really central to my interests, but am really glad I did. The photographs are beautiful, and it's a very pleasant and relaxing place to visit. A large, airy gallery that still is comfortable and not off-putting. I didn't buy anything but several of the pictures have stuck in... More

Galen Rowel and his wife Barbara Rowel were photographers of international fame. The collection of his works in this gallery are breathtaking. Visit if you are in Bishop.

Excellent collection of Galen Rowell work, along with some from his wife and son. Well presented, very extensive. And very inspirational. Worth a good hour or two to take it all in.

We wandered thru this beautiful art gallery ... nature in this part of the world is really wonderful. Many of the pieces from this gallery were in our hotel lobby area!

I first got to know Galen Rowell through homework my son had to do about a famous photographer. He picked Galen Rowell, got to know his passion for the great outdoors and for climbing, his photographic style (a master of capturing light) and also the sad circumstances of his premature accidental death, together with his wife. What a great opportunity... More

Galen and Barbra Rowell are superb photographers and this store is a gem of a store to visit while in Bishop. We have always enjoyed seeing their superb photography and usually buy the calendars and other items as well. It will inspire those who like to take pictures how magic this area is.
