For many who think about Prescott images of the wild west come to mind. Wyatt Earp, miners looking for the big pay day, cowboys working the high range, and of course Whiskey Row. Many people also think of Prescott for its amazing outdoor activities. Miles of hiking trails, mountain biking, rock climbing, and even boating on the local lakes. Beyond the Western and outdoor images, there’s also the Prescott Art scene! You see, the Prescott Arts community is large and varied.
Prescott Art – Beyond Western Images
Prescott was once the territorial capitol of Arizona. In the early days many people set down roots in Prescott. Some came to strike it rich, others came to settle the area, ranchers and cowboys worked throughout the region. Prescott is a true Western town, and even to this day large ranches remain in operation in the area and cowboys still work the range.
And while Prescott remains a unique western town in Arizona, it’s grown beyond that. The Prescott Art community displays more than just Western Art. And with dozens of galleries throughout the town visitors can appreciate a diverse representation of artists’ works. You won’t find just paintings of cowboys and horses (although those are available in town as well). No matter what your artistic tastes are, we’re willing to bet you’ll find art work that will appeal to you on your next visit.
Visiting the Prescott Art galleries you’ll quickly realize the diversity of art available in town. From post modern oils to majestic landscapes created in a variety of mediums, the area has a wide variety of artist works on display. Oils, acrylics, water colors, pen and ink, colored pencils, pastels, photography, and more. All mediums can be found in the galleries of Prescott, and all forms of artistic subjects are well covered too.
The Frame & I’s Gallery
Our frame shop also has its own gallery as well. Oil paintings, pen and ink, colored pencil works, photography, jewelry, and more can be found at our gallery. And also, the frames on the walls are artistic endeavors as well.
