The member artists of the Jerome Artists Cooperative Gallery have no problem voicing their opinions about the unique gallery which is home to their art: “It’s breathtaking!” “eclectic," “riotous” and “charming,’ “awesome,” “it totally rocks!” “It’s cooperative!,” “it’s HOT!,” “ON the wall- OFF the wall”…

A walk through the several rooms of the gallery located in the old Hotel Jerome is enough to convince the many visitors that they have discovered a gem of a place- from the friendly local artists/sales people who greet them, to the art itself to the ‘weather report’ window which elicits “oo’s” and “ahs” of delight at the 180 degree view of the beautiful historic valleys and mountains beyond.

In such a setting, the Jerome Artist Cooperative Gallery will open its annual Summer Membership Show, aptly called Natural Beauty on Saturday, June 14th from 5 pm to 8 pm. The public is invited to join the artists for food, drink, live music and the chance to see how the 33 local painters and crafts-people incorporate the beauty of the natural wonders that surround them into their own uniquely personal artistic journey.

The Natural Beauty show will be on exhibit for 6 weeks, and will be continuing during the very popular Jerome ARTwalk event, which takes place the first Saturday of each month. The July ARTwalk will take place on July 5th. The Jerome Artists Cooperative Gallery is located at 502 Main Street , Jerome Arizona. Gallery hours are 10am-6pm, 7 days a week.
