"Ships of the Desert" near Pyramid Lake, Nevada


Our Story
 

Nevada Fine Art LLC is a private fine art dealership founded in 2016. We specialize in the sale and purchase of original fine art by historically significant artists of Nevada, California, and the Southwest. Our collection includes established contemporary artists who we believe are continuing the legacy and traditions of the historic masters, and who deserve attention from discerning collectors, interior designers/stylists and art institutions. 

Coming soon — A new section of our website called Sunfisher Gallery will focus on Old West & western originals. Our goal is to fulfill a desire expressed by Joe Beeler at the 17th Annual CAA Exhibition in 1982: …to inspire people to appreciate the West, as it is and as it was. …to be their eyes, so to speak — the medium through which they come to an understanding of the essential nature of this special part of America.
