Our local artist also sell some of their paintings, photographs, jewelry and sculptures at the Gallery. if you are looking for a special gift stop at the gallery and we will offer an authenticity record of your one of a kind piece of art.

Some Snapshots put together by Susanne Reese of some of our
favorite club memories and activities of 2017.
It has been more than an amazing and productive year for our local artists and members! We can not thank our community enough for all the love and support it has shown us!



This Saturday (December 9th ) was a great day for the Elko Art Club. We made over 100 Reindeer Ornaments with happy-fun Elko children. Many families took a ECAC FAMILY Membership home for 2018, which A means they will be taking part in other great activities all year long!

A special thank you to Rushele and the Downtown Business Association.... hard work and talent pays off in the City Center of Elko. The Snowflake Festival and Parade were a huge success for the entire community.



Thank you to all of our members who made the Snowflake Festival such a great success. Over 100 children created Reindeer Candy cane ornaments, learned chalk art, and helped make up the Terrace Holiday Lunch Gift Bags. A great-successful effort. Thanks to Lori T and the Pattons for donations!



We were all proud of our work after participating in the Best Western Elko Inn Art Party November 25th. The coffee and juice bar were a favorite and snacks were yummy too!
We created a winter scene with a long view of trees hidden in the fog. The medium was soft pastel chalk. Check us out! Next Art Party is December 30, 2:30 to 4:30. Make your reservations by calling the Gallery or posting here on our FB Page! Best Western Elko Inn is 1930 Idaho Street.




Special thanks to Jodi Schultz, teaching our September 8th Toast To Art! We all had a blast and loved our creations. Great work you artists! Thanks for supporting the Arts in Elko County...
