Great place to view some wonderful photographs of the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains and surrounding areas. Elegant gallery - it was once a bank! Friendly, knowledgable staff.

If you're interested in Galen Rowell and his photographic work this is worth a visit. Nice displays with many of his noteworthy prints in large format adorn the walls.

We are fans of Galen Rowell's work and have wanted to stop here for years. We were not disappointed. Picked up beautiful large framed print for our home. Service was exceptional.

Had a little extra on our last trip so decided to check out this gallery. I thoroughly enjoyed browsing the exceptional photography being exhibited. There are stunning views of the surrounding area and is a nice, relaxing treat.

I've loved Galen Rowell's photography for decades, but never realized his connection to Bishop. The gallery is an oasis of exquisite natural beauty; our visit was uplifting in the way that visiting a fine museum of art is.
