Welcome to MANGELSEN – Images of Nature Gallery in Galena, Illinois
Here's what our collectors have to say:
“We were drawn to MANGELSEN images as they portray many seasons, reflective of the seasons of life we move through. Our home is a reflection of who we are, a reflection of our lives and families. Our Mangelson collection compliments our story in our home...the places we have traveled and the seasons of life we live. We titled our Mangelsen collection "Seasons" and truly enjoy just how natural these images are.
When entering our home, we are greeted by “Morning Reflections” and “Time for Reflections” hung on each side of the entry into the family room. We find a sense of tranquility in both of these images of the Tetons, one in summer and the other in winter. Above the mantel in the living room is our favorite, “Whisper of Fall”. Other signs of the seasons are found in the hallways our home in “Song of the River”, “Wyoming on my Mind” and “Crystal River Magic”, our most recent purchase that we find new treasures in each time we look at its many layers of beauty.
The knowledgeable consultants at the Galena studio have provided an enjoyable experience each time we purchased an image. Their superior customer service was present during and after the sale to assure our satisfaction. This too drew us to the MANGELSEN collection. Tom's work is truly unlike any other collection we have ever seen...truly amazing. We look forward to visiting the studio to see the classic pieces and the new releases.”

On weekend evenings we will offer light dinner specials, appetizers, homemade desserts, coffee, tea and wine, beer and spirits.
This is an establishment where you can come and enjoy a meal, an appetizer, a piece of homemade dessert, a cup of coffee or glass of wine and actually enjoy the conversation of the people you are with. Imagine that! An actual conversation in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere! I have heard so many comments, especially from women’s groups that there is no place in town for them to meet where they don’t feel like they are in a ‘bar atmosphere.’ Otto’s Place is your retreat from the madness!
