The Shaver Lake Art Gallery is located in the quaint village of Shaver Lake. It was founded by a group of ten local artists in February 2008. In 2009 the gallery relocated to its present venue and now features the works of 25 artists. As a cooperative, the gallery is staffed by local artists who can often be found working on art projects when you visit. The Shaver Lake Art Gallery presents a distinguished selection of art inspired by the beautiful Central and southern Sierra Nevada mountains, lakes and streams.
Offered for sale are paintings in watercolor, oil and pastel; drawings; block prints; handmade jewelry created in dichroic glass, beads, semi-precious stones and silver; clay works and pottery; origami; photography; metal art; and quilts. Other available artwork includes creations in wood including hand carved wildlife, decoys, and caricatures; wood turnings and chain saw carvings.
On the third Thursday of each month, the Shaver Lake Art Gallery is open from 5-7:00 p.m. Light refreshments are served and usually an artist is demonstrating their medium. This has become an increasingly popular community gathering. Because of unpredictable weather no third Thursday ArtHops are held January, February or March.
Our co-op art gallery is run and staffed by local artists and we would love to share art inspired by the Central and Southern Sierra and beyond with you.
