Blink and you’ll miss it. Markleeville – only 20 miles from South Lake Tahoe – but a world away, is the home of a small tight-knit community who are the local stewards of the Carson River and the local hot springs, and artists like Charles Muench who captured a quintessential Sierra moment in his painting shown here.
Meet the artists who call Markleeville their home during the 11th Annual Markleeville Artists Open Studio Tour on October 5 and 6, 2013 from 11am to 4pm.
Over the weekend you’ll meet the artists of this sweet town who create pottery, photography, stained glass, oil paintings, and watercolors that define them as a people and their place within this stunning landscape.
The 2013 studio tour is dedicated to Peter Campbell Chope, one of the original Open Studio artists. Join us for a toast to him at 5pm Saturday on the back deck of his studio.
Stop by the Chamber of Commerce in Markleeville to get your FREE map and guide. The guide includes artist descriptions and locations as well as information about the generous sponsors. Bright yellow and gold banners will be hanging throughout town, marking each artist’s studio.

Local Tip: Be sure and visit the Markleeville Art Gallery after your tour of the local studios. You can’t miss it since there’s only about 10 store fronts. Ahhhh- Markleeville. Fall is one of the best times to visit.
