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.

Good place to go on a rainy day. In a small town it counts as a thing to do. It is a whirl around the world. Bring your full wallet

For years Galen Rowell explored the all encompassing wilderness world wide. I have always found his photo insightful and gave the viewer a path into areas most people just notice and never take time to explore. All the photos are beautiful at first glance, but in my personal opinion they are over sharpen and saturated in Photo Shop. I feel... More
