I stop here every year and enjoy the work of Galen Rowell and his wife Barbara. I just recently been purchasing their prints. My experience at the gallery had been outstanding with the staff members. What an amazing life they lived.
Local art gallery. Beautiful, but expensive photos. Other art pieces by local craft people. Worth taking the time to stop in.
