Wonderful art selection

We were told to visit this gallery to see Yuan paintings (for my brother) and pastels (for me). I only wish I had the cash and wall space to be able to make a purchase!

Excellent collection, easily the best in Carmel, perhaps all California. Several of my favorite artists used to have galleries here (now passed) and Reiser continues to keep them alive with their art.

I have done business (both bought and sold paintings) with Jim Rieser over the last 20+ years. He is honest, friendly, generous with information, never any pressure, a joy to know and a big help building my collection.

Several years ago I wrote a review of this wonderful gallery. I have visited it several times since and it still has the best combination of wonderful Early California art and wonderful living artist painting around the area. Owner is knowledgeable and not pushy at all. You can learn a lot about art here by just asking questions. If you... More

The term is over used, but this gallery actually does have museum quality art as well as wonderful contemporary paintings, and the owner is friendly and informative. The art ranges from incredible old California masters to the present, so whatever your interest, you have to visit this gallery whether or not you have the money to buy anything. To quote... More

The owners are terrific people, and care about their customers and prospective customers. Have even been to private showings at their home... Really recommend checking out their gallery.

I enjoyed this trip visiting several art galleries in the Carmel area - one of them being Rieser Fine Art Gallery. The James J. Riesier Fine Art Gallery specializes on Early California and American Paintings. They also have art from contemporary American artists. They hold events also during the year. One nice thing this art gallery does is on their... More

We go to Carmel every year love the art galleries. This is my favorite. There is a faboulous collection of Early California art in the front half of the gallery. The other half is dedicated to living artist. Be sure to see art from Kim Lordier, Charles Movalli and Ellen Willis. The staff is very helpful and not pushy. They... More
