Gallery Showings – Arts Prescott
Exploring the American Southwest is a dream for many. Envision Cowboys walking down the street with gun belts hanging from their hips. Step back in time to Prescott Arizona. Prescott offers most modern amenities of a small town but still holds that old west charm. I am happy to call Prescott my home town.
I joined Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery in 2009 and am thankful to be a member of this wonderful community of talented Artists. Arts Prescott Gallery is right in the middle of historic Whiskey Row between the old fashioned saloons and great restaurants. Since Arts Prescott Gallery is a cooperative, you will find one of the 25 artists (including me) on staff everyday from 10-6. Stop in and say hello and see my fine art horse photography in person!

Sedona – The Village Gallery
UPDATED- August 1 2016 I became a permanent member of The Village Gallery in Sedona, Arizona.
The red rocks lend themselves to the backdrop of your photos. There are quite a few world renowned art galleries. The atmosphere is laid back and calls to people all across the United States for the deep feeling of connection to the earth through Sedona’s vortexes. Whether it is hiking on one of the scenic trails off of Cathedral Rock, or the Airport Mesa, or visiting the one of the top spas, L’Auberge de Sedona, which also has a gallery and an artist in residence program, I always love visiting this part of Arizona. I love how it has always supported artists to not only explore their creativity, but to continue to nurture it.
When I was asked to participate in the Village Gallery as a guest artist, I was thrilled to be able to reach the audience in this area and for this amount of time, two months – June and July of 2016. I am really looking forward to this summer showing of my works in this gallery. I am honored that they chose me as a guest artist.
Village Gallery is located at 6500 AZ-179, Sedona, AZ 86351
Carefree, Arizona-Easy Street Galleria
Carefree is a rural, residential town of approximately 3,500 people, residing in 1,900 homes, slightly more than 8 square miles in area, located in the northeast portion of the greater Phoenix metropolitan area. Carefree is nestled around Black Mountain and its land mass also continues to the northeast of this prominent landmark.
I am pleased to have Easy Street Galleria among the locations to offer my Equine Fine Art. Easy Street Galleria is a fairly new and unique addition to Carefree town center! Easy Street Galleria is home to over 25 talented fine artists and crafters that work in many different mediums from oil painting to exotic wood creations. There is also a funky fashion boutique and a colorful 500 square foot art studio that will host beginners and advanced art classes for adults and children.
Easy Street Galleria is the creative vision of Victoria Orrico, a 5 year resident of Carefree. Victoria creates whimsical creations from gourds and dabbles in many other medias. She has been featured in many art shows, newspapers and even interviewed twice on Fox news 15!
Easy Street Galleria is located at 100 Easy Street in downtown Carefree, Arizona right near the famous Sundial.
The Town of Carefree was the vision of KT Palmer and Tom Darlington in the early 1950’s. Two men who carried out many of their joint ventures on a simple handshake created the Carefree Development Corp.which spawned the name of the town. Carefree experienced tremendous growth from 1959 to 1984, prior to incorporation. Carefree featured Arizona’s first fly-in residences at the Sky Ranch Airport, who would travel from all over the country to experience the Sonoran Desert and buy land from the Carefree Development Corporation.
The Carefree Sundial: Commissioned in 1959 for Carefree co-founder KT Palmer and designed by solar engineer John Yellott.
In 1976 the Sundial was acquired, dedicated and donated to the Town of Carefree by the Kiwanis Club of Carefree in memory of their fellow member KT Palmer (1899-1976).
