Reviewed September 6, 2013

If you're traveling to Homer, do NOT miss this studio and gallery. Norman Lowell and his wife, Libby, have lived a fascinating life in Alaska and celebrated his beautiful paintings (oil, watercolors and other mediums) by constructing an immense, beautiful gallery to showcase them. The gallery also highlights exquisite displays of artwork from Alaska. The Lowells have gifted the showing of all of these national treasures free to all those who just stop by to view. Don't miss this opportunity. Thank you, Norman and Libby.

This is a must see in Homer, Alaska. Mr. Lowell, who is likely to greet you at the door in his wheel-chair, captures the light, space, and color of Alaska perfectly. I am a semi-professional photographer and in my dreams I capture the essence of a landscape with the power and beauty of Mr. Lowell’s brush. Be advised, you will not be able to just “see” this gallery. There are hundreds of paintings displayed spanning decades of work, and you will not want to leave. If you are driving to Homer you have no excuse to miss it since its right off the Sterling Highway near the Anchor River Bridge.

Indeed surprising. You probably have to KNOW about it, to find it.
Norman Lowell has a very impressive art gallery, both in size and in content. And most important it contains his own most beautiful paintings, which he created in decades of work. He captures Alaskan views as most of us can only hope to see. A very nice experience for anyone who appreciates art in general and nature paintings in particular.

We will return to Alaska for the third time in six years this June. One of the main reasons to make this 4,560 mile journey (by air) is to visit with the landscape artist, Norman Lowell and his gracious, beautiful wife, Libby. There are many breathtaking and one-of-a-kind vistas in the great state of Alaska. There are so many that it is difficult not to spend each day when in there just overwhelmed with its natural and unique beauty and almost impossible to capture that in words. But Mr. Lowell has done it through artistic talent like no one else. We are enthralled with his paintings and encourage every visitor to the Kenai peninsula to visit the Lowell Art Gallery - perhaps more than once - to see this magnificent art work. And even if in Anchorage, to drive to the gallery will not be a waste. It is one of the most unbelievable surprises your
Alaskan journey will provide you. You will not be disappointed. You will be blessed beyond.

This working gallary and homestead farm is FANTASTIC. Just the drive up to the place is an experience. The turn-off driveway has been made easier as the years go by (25+). When you walk into his gallary, the painting are breathtaking and you are lost in his world. Walking into the old orriginal homestead home is always amazing.
