Georgetown, Colorado is a former silver-mining camp nestled in the mountains about 45 minutes west of Denver. Although the town only has about 1,000 year-round residents, a steady stream of tourists visit Georgetown to get a sense of what life must have been like during the Colorado Silver Boom in 1850s. The well-preserved, historic town has proven to be the ideal location for the Grizzly Creek Gallery operated by nature and wildlife photographer Gary Haines and his wife. And in fact, the gallery is located in the town’s first framed commercial building, which dates back to 1867.
Most images displayed in the gallery are Gary’s, but the Grizzly Creek Gallery also represents other photographers who specialize in Colorado scenics. In addition to selling a wide selection of matted prints, notecards, and decorative furnishings to tourists, Grizzly Creek Gallery offers customized mounting and framing services and large-format digital printing. Gary also provides complimentary, on-site consultations to interior designers and art consultants who want help choosing which images would work best with existing home or office décor.
