How gracious Georgette and Prescott are and what a talented artist Georgette is. Prescott couldn't be more helpful in his own, low key way. Her watercolor "Tranquility" is going to find a way to my home. A small sculpture by the late Aleta Grey came...More

Many of the beautiful watercolors are by one of the gallery owners, Georgette Grey. Southwestern landscapes and flowers are frequent subjects. In addition to paintings by other local artists, there are custom postcards, sculptures, pottery, jewelry, and handmade accessories. A delightful gallery to visit while...More

Visited one Friday afternoon. The gallery wasn't busy --a shame--but the displays were attractive, the art is amazing. A good variety of art, from originals to prints...from inexpensive items to quality-priced items. A good variety of art forms and artists. Good Job, gallery owners!
