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.

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.
