"Ships of the Desert" near Pyramid Lake, Nevada


Our Story
 

Nevada Fine Art LLC is a private, online 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. We occasionally feature 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. 

A new section of our website called Sunfisher Gallery is focused on Old West & western originals. Our goal is to fulfill a desire expressed by Joe Beeler at the 17th Annual Cowboy Artists of America 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.

Our business philosophy

  • We are committed to fair dealing and complete client satisfaction

  • We believe in fair, honest pricing; we do not inflate prices for the purpose of offering discounts as a sales strategy

  • We are uncompromising on quality and ensure every piece of artwork receives professional conservation treatment as needed before being placed in our inventory 

  • We fully disclose minor defects or factors of age that cannot be addressed by conservation treatment 

  • We do not enhance photos to diminish the appearance of fading, age-related toning, or defects of any kind

  • We value return clients and enjoy showing our appreciation
