Recipient of “Best of the Valley” since its’ opening (2007), Gilman Contemporary is recognized for its unique and innovative work uncharacteristic of what you would expect in a traditional mountain town. The contemporary gallery has an emphasis on photography, both traditional and modern, but also exhibits a wide range of sculpture and paintings from both well-known artists alongside thought-provoking emerging artists. The gallery is located on the shopping district of Sun Valley Road and is a perfect stop amongst shops and cafes. The staff is warm and knowledgable and the exhibitions change nine times a year so there is always something new to see. Even better, dogs are welcome adding to its laid back style.

Hip and young. A great space, conveniently located. They offer an interesting array of artists. I especially enjoy their photography exhibits. Though a bit of walk from other galleries - Gilman is always worth the effort to visit on Gallery Walk.

This is the most interesting gallery in a town full of interesting galleries. L'Anne Gilman is a community treasure and her staff is extremely knowledgable but laid back. It's worth stopping in for a look.

I was blown away by this gallery when there over Christmas. I could have been in a gallery in a major city. The work was high caliber and not the cowboy work I was used to seeing while in western resort towns. Worth a visit...More
