Jerome Art Walk on Nov. 3 is the perfect post-Halloween night. If you missed the legendary Halloween costume party in Jerome, just one week later, enjoy a more sedate but equally as entertaining night in this mile high town.
Twenty-six studios and galleries will host openings and happenings throughout the artist colony from 5-8 p.m. From the Old Jerome High School studios to The New State Motor Company with the Patrick Lincoln Gallery, art, music and lively conversation are everywhere.
Enjoy great food in wonderful restaurants and maybe even spend the night at one of the lodging choices. Park your car and take the shuttle or stroll the winding streets on a cool fall night.

Jerome Artists Cooperative Gallery's featured artist through Nov. 20 is Birgitta Lapides. Birgitta is well-known for her mixed media landscape and abstract work on paper and canvas, as well as her jewelry and knitted garments. "I love strong colors, simple forms, which I think adapt very well to the landscapes here in Arizona," says Lapides,"For me it's the creation of a piece that I get completely absorbed in that is the reward in itself." Stop by this wonderful gallery space and meet the artist on October 6th.
"Wandering the Wax Palette" opens on Nov. 3 at Gallery 527 in Jerome. Ardis Harsche unveils new work just completed in her charming Clarkdale studio. Known recently for her bold cave paintings and primal icons, this departure into various styles explores subjects and techniques that inspire this talented artist. Drawing from impressionists like Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet and Paul Gauguin, Ardis uses color and light in a masterful impressionistic style and at times moves toward the abstract.
The disconnected strokes, colored shadows and play of light of this new work are a fascinating departure for the artist. When asked how she selects the subject for her painting, Ardis explains that there is a flow in the process of using wax and the material will inspire her composition as the painting evolves. The show will continue through Dec. 31. Stop by Gallery 527 on November 3rd from 5-8 p.m. to see the new work and spend a pleasant evening filled with art, food, wine and conversation.
