The gallery includes original art by famed mountaineer, author, and alpine artist Dee Molenaar.  A recent addition to the gallery is a collection of stunning landscapes and portraits by Northwest photographer Mary Randlett.  Other local artists are featured, offering turned wood bowls, hand crafted stained glass, original watercolors, and hand-made rustic furniture.

One can also peruse an amazing array of collectible books featuring local and mountain history. Learn about the Native American peoples who summered in this valley and on the side of their beloved and revered Mt. Tahoma, celebrating their heritage, and gathering plants important to their survival.  Get to know the earliest non-native settlers, with their challenges and pioneer homesteads. Learn about the rich mountaineering tradition, featuring world-famous climbers who trained on the slopes of Mt.
