Beautiful photography

If you love photography then visit this gallery. Photography features lots of local shots from the Eastern Sierras but there is photography from around the world too.

Not to be missed photos that can move you. There are several masters with their work displayed. We return every time we are in Bishop.

I love the work of Galen Rowell, and this gallery highlights his work and many other talented photographers. Images of the Owens Valley, Eastern Sierra's, The Western U.S. and the World are on display in this clean, welcoming, easy gallery. Spend 20 min or 2 hours. A great selection of table books, shirts and hats etc. are available. The staff... More

We stopped here to look at the pictures in the gallery. There were actually quite a few more than I thought there would be. Don't look too closely at some of them though as they are best viewed from a distance. If you look too closely, a lot of things are not in sharp focus and seem over saturated. Still,... More

It is weird and wonderful to see a gallery full of beautiful photos of many of the places you have just visited. The artists' ability to capture the perfect image in the right light and the right season makes for an interesting visit. If you can't afford a photograph, there are books and cards available for sale. Well worth a... More

The Gallery serves a very usefulpurpose -- connecting all concerned with great photography of the Sierra (and like areas elsewhere). The artists, dead and alive, students, and purchases seeking the best of such work in one place. The Gallery is handsome and well laid out. However, the staff was ill informed (unable to identify the existence or location of an... More

I've passed through Bishop a few times and never noticed this gallery but it is a must visit if you are passing through. Galen Rowell's work is stunning and is presented very well in the gallery he set up in Bishop - a real highlight for me was a collection of photos taken from the very north of the Americas... More

This is the gallery of Galen and Barbara Rowell, and by itself would make Bishop worth a visit. He is my favorite photographer after Ansel Adams and they have a big selection. Many 12 x 20's were about $700. A great stop whether you buy or just look.
