Jerome Rocks: Artists Cooperative readies for annual Summer Membership Show

The now infamous attention-grabbing bumper sticker that proudly proclaims, "Jerome, Arizona- Population: Strange" is only part of the story; the whole truth is, Jerome rocks!

The member-artists of the Jerome Artists Cooperative Gallery on Main Street are preparing to prove why their historic hotel gallery is a major contributor to the town's popularity when they unleash their artistic interpretations of "Jerome Rocks" in the annual Summer Membership Show next month.

The exhibition will open on Saturday, July 6, in conjunction with the town's First Saturday Art Walk and continue until Aug. 1.

Many of the 35 artists especially look forward to the annual membership shows -- the first of which falls during the fall holiday season, and the second in the summer -- because only then are they allowed by gallery regulation to show works from media other than their specific juried category. It is not unusual to see a painter show off secret talents in ceramics or a glassblower showcase a jewelry series . Of course, visitors can also look forward to catching up with favorite artists and their latest juried works as well.

The Jerome Artists Cooperative Gallery currently boasts several members who signed on 17 years ago at its inception, many others who joined and have stayed on over the ensuing years, and juried newcomers who have waited patiently for their turn to claim a space inside the beloved gallery.

The one attribute shared by all, however, is a personal and professional commitment to continued innovation, industry and creative thinking when it comes to new ideas and production of their own art.

The group recently welcomed two new member/artists, Don Voss and Christine Ryback.

Don's acrylic paintings which center on the form of sacred geometric mandalas and Christine's very unique and ironically delicate cement leaves are most welcome additions to the gallery collection.

The 2013 Summer Membership Show, "Jerome Rocks!" opens on July 6, with a reception from 5-8 p.m.

The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and located at 502 Main St., in the former Hotel Jerome.

For more information visit or call 928-639-4276.
