Local Art Display at Tahoe Mountain Sports

Local Art Hits the Walls of Tahoe Mountain Sports

We are excited to support the Truckee Tahoe community with our Local Art Display. The program brings art, community, and outdoor adventure to the walls of Tahoe Mountain Sports.

About the program

Our local art display is a new opportunity for artists who principally work and live in the North Tahoe Region to gain exposure and sell their art to an outdoor adventure oriented audience. We hope to bring outdoor inspired art to the store and create a space for artists of all types, from novice to well established, to display and sell their work at Tahoe Mountain Sports. This program is designed to showcase local artists and provide an opportunity for our customers to connect with and support our community.

This program is open to artists who currently reside in Truckee or the North Lake Tahoe area. We accept a variety of mediums – photography, paintings, 3D art, etc. We are also looking for an artist interested in creating Tahoe Mountain Sports logo wear.

We invite local artists to display their work at Tahoe Mountain Sports in Truckee, CA. There are a variety of display locations within the store. Dimensions and layout can vary based on artwork and seasonal changes at Tahoe Mountain Sports. Sample locations include upper wall sections above footwear and apparel (see below). The distance between removable metal slatwall standards is 32 in.

We encourage interested artists to visit Tahoe Mountain Sports to look at the store’s layout and discuss display locations. Number of pieces displayed at Tahoe Mountain Sports can vary based on size and medium and will be discussed with TMS staff for optimal visibility, cohesiveness, and placement. Any artwork sold will be charged a 15% commission fee. Tahoe Mountain Sports will handle all sales transactions.

TMS extends a huge thank you to Troy Corliss and Gallery 5830 for helping to craft this new program and being the first artist on display at Tahoe Mountain Sports. You can follow his work here.
