Lake Tahoe has more than its fair share of natural beauty, and when you want to take a piece home with you, stop by some of our favorite art galleries. 

Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery
Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery is known for representing a wide variety of American and international artists. The gallery is home to all types of exquisite fine art, from oil paintings and fine art prints to glass art, sculpture and contemporary pieces that almost defy categorization.

Jon Paul Gallery

His self- taught style is impeccable, and has earned him an international reputation for being a true master of the craft of photography.

The Haldan Art Gallery at Lake Tahoe Community College
The Haldan Art Gallery’s mission is to present rotating exhibitions of both historical and contemporary artists to LTCC students and the community. The goal of each art exhibition is to intrigue, teach, challenge, delight, and in some way, expand gallery visitors’ knowledge of art. A variety of instructional tools will accompany each exhibition to enhance the visitors’ learning experience. Starting October 3rd, Haldan Gallery will be hosting the beautiful artwork of Phillip Brown.
