The Bell Gallery and Garden
Quite possibly the nicest little shop

Bill and Joanne Bell, Owners
Darcie Luster, Manager

Welcome. We opened our gallery in May 2006 after 25 years of exhibiting our work at art and craft shows all over the eastern United States. Our Gallery features the hand-made work of more than 100 local and regional artists and craftspeople. We have unique pottery, baskets, original artwork, jewelry, creations in wood and leather, blown glass, and our own work; Joanne's pressed flower suncatchers and beveled glass panels, and Bill's award winning large-format landscape photography. Our historic building is a rare stacked board, solid hardwood structure with lots of character and charm. In our back yard we have created the prettiest little hidden garden in the Blue Ridge, with unique and unusual garden art and décor.

Located in the center of town, we're just steps from the Floyd stoplight.

Bill's Photography


William Bell
Artist's Statement

William Bell has been a full time photographer since 1989, specializing in making archival, museum grade prints of scenes around the Eastern United States. He personally performs every aspect of the work.

Bill uses large-format 4X5 film, and high end digital cameras to capture his images. He carries over 20 pounds of equipment when he goes into the field. He also does all of his own printing, using state of the art digital equipment to achieve amazing quality in his images.

"It is the artistís eye that distinguishes one personís point of view from someone elseís. Iíve spent a lot of time in nature, and I try to open my eyes to the beauty of the world and to bring some of that back with me.Ē

His collection of photographs includes many traditional landscape images from the Blue Ridge Mountains. ďIíve lived most of my life in these mountains, and Iím continually inspired by the unique beauty of this area,Ē he said. He also has a large number of pieces from the barrier islands of the Carolina coast. "One of the great places!"

Bill's images can be seen and purchased at the the Bell Gallery & Garden,† in Floyd,VA, and at art and craft shows.

NOTE: All of my pictures to ship will be printed on archival canvas with a specially engineered lacquer coating with UV protection. They will all be gallery wrapped;† the image goes around all sides of the piece so no frame is needed.
