With galleries closed and fewer art sales in the past pandemic year, a group of artists from Arizona have launched The Fine Arts Gallery at 6137 E. Cave Creek Road. in the Cave stream.
The artist-owned gallery, which opened to the public on September 1, will exhibit the work of 36 fine artists in mediums such as jewelry, glass, fiber sculpture, ceramics, bronze, gourds, textiles, photography, sculpture in metal, living edge in wood, graphite, acrylic, pastel and oil.
“We are thrilled to be able to represent some of Arizona’s most accomplished contemporary artists in our gallery,” said Linda lindus, an acrylic painter and one of the gallery owners. “Art transcends the rustic past with contemporary fine art today, while paying homage to its history by including art with a Western twist.”
Meet the artists during the opening from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, September 18, with a light refreshment, free and open to the public. The gallery will close at 4 p.m. that day for a private party. Regular hours will be 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday and by appointment.
Among the artists featured in September is the live edge burl carpenter Rick griggs, graphic designer Jack schilder and jeweler artist Marlene Sabatina.
The Fineer Arts Gallery is on the scenic drive through Cave Creek and Carefree, in the rustic building known as Cave Creek Station. It is still shaded by a large 150-year-old tamarisk tree, which residents fondly remember as the “Treehouse”.
