~ The Eureka Art Scene ~
THE ART SCENE IN EUREKA is gaining momentum thanks to the passionate work of local supporters. Two creative hubs draw visitors to some of the town’s creative treasures, and art events continue to be added throughout the year.
The Eureka Courthouse Gallery Hall is a unique art space that features a variety of traveling shows that rotate throughout the year. Both regional and national artists have had their artwork showcased upon the historic brick walls of the east side of the courthouse.
180 North Main Street is home base for the Eureka Restoration Enterprise. Built in 1877, this building is one of the oldest in Eureka. It now serves as an art gallery and features Nevada-produced items including pottery and rope bowls from Ely, goat milk soaps and lotions from Tonopah, crochet animals, candles, puppets, wreaths, jewelry, baskets, rugs and furniture from Eureka, salsa and coffee from Gardnerville, ceramics, wool and custom soaps from Reno, loose tea from Tahoe, lavender plants and products from Stagecoach, Basque cards, photography from Baker, honey from Currant, and literature from Nevada authors and admirers.
The annual Art & Wine Festival boasts a variety of Nevada produced wines and beers. Visitors from all over Nevada participate, and have the opportunity to explore Main Street buildings and visit with local shop owners.
