Greetings!

We are an Online Gallery and LIterary Arts Hub only, at this time. The physical gallery and arts center has closed due to Covid. See the Artist tabs in the gallery to view the artist offerings.

Take a Google Virtual Tour of our Virtual Gallery, once a live art gallery and bookstore in downtown historic Angels Camp in Calaveras County. Simply click on the image and drag in the direction you want to look. To move forward, click on the arrows in the desired direction. 

The works posted in photos may not reflect current artists in our gallery. See individual Virtual Artist pages.

If you scroll down, you will see art work from many of the artists that Manzanita Arts Emporium has represented over the last few years, since 2015, its inception.

Writers Programs:

Voices of Wisdom classes and writers’ meetings are occurring online via Zoom and a new schedule of physical meetings as announced for 2022. See Voices of Wisdom tab.

We have relocated our publisher office to the Volunteer Center of Calaveras County at 325 Lewis Avenue in San Andreas and will resume literary activities and classes/events there once we get the all-clear. In the meantime, watch for popup author events and writer support meetings around the county.
