We were told to visit this gallery to see Yuan paintings (for my brother) and pastels (for me). I only wish I had the cash and wall space to be able to make a purchase!

Excellent collection, easily the best in Carmel, perhaps all California. Several of my favorite artists used to have galleries here (now passed) and Reiser continues to keep them alive with their art.

I have done business (both bought and sold paintings) with Jim Rieser over the last 20+ years. He is honest, friendly, generous with information, never any pressure, a joy to know and a big help building my collection.
