Recipient of “Best of the Valley” since its’ opening (2007), Gilman Contemporary is recognized for its unique and innovative work uncharacteristic of what you would expect in a traditional mountain town. The contemporary gallery has an emphasis on photography, both traditional and modern, but also exhibits a wide range of sculpture and paintings from both well-known artists alongside thought-provoking emerging artists. The gallery is located on the shopping district of Sun Valley Road and is a perfect stop amongst shops and cafes. The staff is warm and knowledgable and the exhibitions change nine times a year so there is always something new to see. Even better, dogs are welcome adding to its laid back style.

This is the most interesting gallery in a town full of interesting galleries. L'Anne Gilman is a community treasure and her staff is extremely knowledgable but laid back. It's worth stopping in for a look.

Love this gallery and the staff are incredible. A must see while you are in Ketchum! They always have something new and I have purchased several pieces from GC for our vacation home.

I have visited Gilman Contemporary many times and each time they have new and exciting exhibitions including many, many pieces of contemporary photography. If possible, go there during a Friday evening gallery walk! The staff is knowledgeable without being pushy and the gallery walk is a fun social event.

Anytime I pass by the Gilman Contemporary I am drawn in by their unique and compelling artwork. Some of my favorites include Jared Rue, Charles Kay, and Jane Maxwell. Not only have I enjoyed the exhibits, it is a comfortably relaxed gallery to wander with a staff that is inviting and knowledgeable!

I was blown away by this gallery when there over Christmas. I could have been in a gallery in a major city. The work was high caliber and not the cowboy work I was used to seeing while in western resort towns. Worth a visit without a doubt.
