We are an Online Art Gallery and Literary Arts Hub. The physical gallery and arts center was closed due to Covid. See the Artist tabs in the gallery to view the artist offerings. We do not formally represent the artists, or take commissions, but we showcase their work. Please consider them for your book when you are formulating covers, need an illustrator, or more.
Take a Google Virtual Tour of our Virtual Gallery, as it looked in 2019 with a live art gallery and a bookstore in downtown historic Angels Camp in Calaveras County. Simply click on the image and drag it 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 online gallery. See individual Virtual Artist pages.
If you scroll down, you will see artwork from many of the artists that Manzanita Arts Emporium has represented over the last few years since 2015, its inception.
