Notice about our change of location:

Sadly, the Angels Camp Gallery and retail store closed its lovely gallery location in Angels Camp permanently on June 29, 2020, due to COVID-19.

But we have a new business location that we utilize and will use to continue workshops and classes, located at the Volunteer Center of Calaveras County, 325 Lewis Avenue, San Andreas, CA 95249. By appointment and workshop schedule only

We share space with the Red Cross and Volunteer Center folks  

Check back with us soon!

OUR ONLINE BOOKSTORE IS Vibrant and thriving, so GO TO THE online BOOKSTORE AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL AUTHORS BY PURCHASING AND READING THEIR BOOKS, BYPASSING AMAZON AT THIS TIME, as they keep most of the profits, as does Ingram, the printer and distributor, sorry to say.

We will ship to you. If you are local, (Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Amador counties) we can arrange for a product dropoff delivery or meeting.

Email us for more information at By shopping with us, you may pay more than Amazon charges, but 80% of the profit goes directly to the author to help pay for book costs, production, and author expertise. Amazon and the printer keep most of the profits if you shop there. Support your local authors, please!

VIEW THE ARTIST PAGES IN THE GALLERY AND contact the artists for purchasing their lovely things.

New address for client appointments only:

325 Lewis Avenue, San Andreas, CA 95249  – This is the office and workshop/meeting space where writers and Voices members will meet once we get the all-clear.
