The Marcus Ashley Gallery is located in a picturesque corner of Heavenly Village in Lake Tahoe. Travelers and locals come to the Sierra Nevada region for respite from bustling cities. Snow-capped mountain peaks, verdant valleys, and deep blue waters in every direction make Lake Tahoe a dreamy getaway. The patrons of the Marcus Ashley Gallery share a mutual love for the Sierra Nevada mountains, and rightly so. Such a paradisiacal location in Lake Tahoe is perfect for displaying contemporary and fine art. While you’re here, do have a look at the Lyman Whitaker art, a surreal collection of kinetic wind sculptures.

None of the trees growing in the American West are as symbolic as the Ponderosa or Yellow Pine. The tree’s wood played a remarkable role in the construction and development of the country. Whitaker’s Ponderosa captures the robust nature of the tree as it fights to thrive in a world threatened by climate change, even as it safeguards human settlements and animal habitats in the US. The sculptor attempts to shed light on the persistent environmental issue experienced by these conifer trees. Ponderosa will look right at home in a garden, park, valley, or estate.
