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.
The Elko County Art Club Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 5:00 pm. at 407 Railroad Street in Elko, Nevada. We feature local artists and we also have guest artists to promote arts and culture in Elko.
Art Club meetings are the second Tuesday of every month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Anyone is welcome to join.
