The first time I visited this world class gallery in 2016, I was blown away by the works of art displayed as well as the friendliness of both Benjamin Walls as well as his very knowledgeable staff. I have visited the gallery many times since as the exhibits are always changing. There is no gallery anywhere near which showcases such amazing photography of exotic animals, unique landscapes, imaginative abstract images and delightful scenery. Much of Benjamin's work is captured in far away lands that many folks never have an opportunity to visit. A visit to his gallery will make you feel as if you have been instantly teleported to Africa, Cuba, the Smokey Mountains, Australia or a host of other destinations. Walls gallery is a great place to spend as little or as much time as you like immersed in spectacular artistry. If you are anywhere near Bristol, VA, put the gallery on your must-do list. You'll be glad you did!

My husband and I visited the Benjamin Walls Gallery and were impressed by the talent on the walls. The gallery offers landscapes, photographs of animals, and abstract photography. The abstract photographs of trees were my favorites. The photograph of the lighthouse is so detailed, you will swear there is an actual working light in the photograph.

The gallery offers many sizes for each photograph and will custom frame them for you. Unfortunately, no prices are listed. If you have to ask...
However, it is worth seeing because of the beauty captured in each photograph.

Several years ago, my brother visited from CA and we dropped into Benjamin Walls. Since then, EVERY time I go downtown--- &/or he visits --- we make it a point to stop in. I always bring visiting guests there and no one has left disappointed. This gallery is an unpresumptuous gem which will take you around the world with Benjamin's incredible photography. He is a brilliant photographer! The employees will help if you need it, giving more info on photos, or leave you to your own resources if you prefer. I find this an absolute MUST if you're in downtown Bristol.

This gallery is a collection of beauty from all over the world displayed as created by God himself for you to enjoy. Benjamin has meticulously brought to life through photography some of the most beautiful places in the world from the mountains, oceans, plains, rivers, lakes, canyons, volcanoes, and skies to pictures that includes the wildlife that lives there. Truly an amazing adventure that you can experience in his gallery, take a personal trip with him as your guide, or purchase the picture to keep in your home or business for others to enjoy!
