Created in 1990, Alta Vista Gallery is more than art…it's an experience. We hope you can come here in person someday, to experience…

  • Our historic property in Valle Crucis, NC, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Gleaming original wood floors beckon you to casually wander through the fine art gallery. 

  • Sitting in our porch swing or purple porch rockers to enjoy the mountain views.

  • Hundreds of paintings in various styles and mediums by many different artists.


If you are looking for a mountain landscape painting or print, Alta Vista Gallery is the place to visit, with the largest selection in the area.

The gallery also shows an eclectic mix of subjects, styles, and mediums in originals and prints - as well as fine crafts, including stained glass, Motawi art tiles, and Mangum pottery.

This is just a sampling of the art that we have here! 

If you need a piece in a specific size or colors, tell me, and we can create it!

Also, we offer LAY-AWAYS for up to one year, to help you with your planning!

We accept all major credit cards. We ship via UPS.

Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you're enjoying it, and I hope to see you here in person someday soon! Until then, please call me with your requirements or questions, or email me at:  altavista@skybest.com.
