Many of our visitors are delighted to discover Spirit Mountain Artworks in such a beautiful out-of-the-way setting. First time visitors often hear about us by word of mouth. We regularly become a "must see" on return visits! Purchasing from us is easy!

Gift certificates are available! Call or use our online feedback form to inquire. We can work out a gift certificate that can be mailed, or held for that special person to use during our December traveling shows or at the gallery during the summer season.

We also have a Wish List Registry for weddings, special occasions, and for your loved ones who are gift-shopping-challenged. Contact us with the artists or items you like, and we will gently guide your beloved in the right direction when they stop by the gallery or visit our December traveling show.

We're sure you'll be pleased with the quality and price range of our wide selection. We have thousands of items and more than one hundred artists and suppliers. You'll be pleased to know that our art is lovingly crafted by individuals, with a face and a story behind every object. Check out the most recent photos of the December traveling shows, the gallery, and the Chitina area.
