Jerome Artist’s Cooperative
The Jerome Artists’ Cooperative Gallery celebrates a reception for Wanda Wood during Jerome’s First Saturday Art Walk on April 7th from 5-8 pm at the Jerome Artists’ Cooperative Gallery. Wood’s featured solo show entitled, “Every Little Thing” represents Wanda’s wide range of interests and expertise that she has explored throughout her lengthy artistic career.
Well known in the gallery with her paintings in oil and pastel, “Every Little Thing” broadens her perspective to include her interest in weaving. Wanda’s assortment of baskets includes both pine needle baskets and reed-woven baskets; some of which are made from Irish wax linen thread. “I just love the way the baskets look and feel,” comments Wood. “I love making them! Some of them are so tiny that you just have to love them to give them the time and attention it takes to make them so tiny.” A reception for the artist is on April 7th from 5-8 pm in the Jerome Artists’ Cooperative Gallery located on the ground floor of the old Hotel Jerome. Refreshments will be served. The show runs through May 2.

Yester Day’s Fine Art Gallery
With spring, the birds are back, especially with the mixed media artwork of Robert Brinkhurst, featured this month of April at Yester Day’s Fine Art Gallery, located in the lower portion of Main Street in Jerome. Originally from the U.K., Brinkhurst now hales from Prescott, where he creates his uniquely charming steampunk harbingers of spring. Tiny gears, watch hands, Milagros, chains, and crystals are all “on the wing” in the whimsy of Brinkhurst’s songbirds and friends. And as long as the canaries keep singing in this old mining town, Brinkhurst’s artwork will help us to keep celebrating our little friends’ return at the beautiful time of year.

Gallery 527 in Jerome continues ‘Ancient Journey’, new encaustic work by Ardis Harsche. Her encaustic paintings are filled with symbols of ancient civilizations, primitive animals and vibrant colors. The artist explains, “My encaustic paintings of flowing wax and heavy texture are an expression of my ‘inner awareness’ of art from the stone age to the petroglyphs of Arizona. I invite the viewer to take this ANCIENT JOURNEY as art alone has connected us to our primal ancestors.” Join the group of talented local artists at Gallery 527 to celebrate this much anticipated show. New to the gallery, Fran McNamara is displaying abstract landscape paintings that are an expression of her concern for the environment. Her collection is called ‘Shrouded in Pearls’.
