With autumn drawing near, Yester Day’s Fine Art Gallery, located at 509 Main Street in the lower business district of Jerome, will have for art lovers a last-hurrah-for-summer, as seen through the eyes and artwork of Canadian artist Leslie Becker.
Having lived in Jerome and other locales of Arizona, Becker has intimate knowledge of the area and seems to understand what people need in art in order to take that southwest sunshine with them. Her paintings simplify our sunny desert world into vignettes reminiscent of the works of Van Gogh. Becker’s series of colorful and loosely executed artworks are also as portable as they are freeing, and will cheer you with pleasant reminders of faraway vistas of our beautiful and nature-filled region, wherever you may be headed as fall’s grind returns.
Gallery 527 in Jerome will welcome guests for The Dog Days of Summer show with a little something new from each of the artists in the gallery. Stop by to see new work from Susan Pitcairn who just returned from a summer retreat and workshop in Spain and great David Bowie images from rock and roll photographer Larry Hulst.
