Zen Mountain Gallery continues its “Summer Under 100” with August Art Walk. Throughout the summer the gallery will focus on works of art from its thirty plus local artists which cost $100 or under. Throughout these months when Arizona temperatures can go above 100 degrees it is a great time to come to Jerome where it is cooler and find art that is affordably priced under $100. Zen Mountain Gallery is a collection of fine art, jewelry and pottery from top local artists with a contemporary and contemplative focus. Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for Art Walk, our Summer Under 100, and a glass of wine.

Enjoy soulful company, snacks and beverages during Jerome’s First Saturday Art walk. Mike Koopsen has always been passionate about the natural world and the beauty that surrounds us. As a photographer, it is one of the reasons he moved to Sedona. “I hope my images will inspire others to seek out a richer, more personal connection with the natural world, increase everyone’s awareness of the fragile and precious nature of our environment, and the need to protect it so future generations can enjoy the wonder I have been blessed to experience.” Jerome Artists’ Cooperative Gallery is located at 502 Main St. 928-639-4276 .

The month of August at Yester Day's Fine Art Gallery is all about monsoon season in northern Arizona, with a rather august and master oil painter, Roy Swenson, being featured once again for his large canvases that portray clouds in great detail, with dramatic use of light and shadow, all in the beautiful colors of the southwest. Combined with these sky images are the waters of places like Lake Powell, which coexist with solid rock landscapes in wonderful contrast.

Having been an artist all his life, Swenson also was a Navy pilot who may have seen into the heart of cumulous clouds many times on his missions over distant seas. Remembering these scenes throughout his later work as a mechanic, musician, and family man, he has reproduced those magnificent images of clouds, water, and light for his contemporary paintings of Arizona now. Art lovers will enjoy and find inspiration from Swenson’s paintings of clouds in an otherwise chaotic world. Yester Day’s Fine Art Gallery is located in the lower Jerome art district, at 509 Main Street.
