Jerome AZ (May 28, 2013) – Gallery 527 welcomes warm days and sultry nights in Jerome. First Saturday Art Walk is June 1st and promises the usual great party with food, wine and great conversation. A sure sign of summer is marked by the arrival of hummingbirds all over the Verde Valley and gallery owner Donna Chesler displays her recent photo of an eager pair of nesting babies. Shot at artist Mary Phoenix’s home, this image is a lovely homage to motherhood.

Susan Pitcairn continues to amaze with beautiful landscapes and is taking pre-orders for her newest book of poetry and paintings.
