One of the North Valley’s largest art galleries is gearing up for a reintroduction of sorts. The Finer Arts Gallery will host a special “Art Affaire” artist reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17 to showcase its expanded 4,000-square-foot gallery space and celebrate the new, diverse works of its 50 artists, all of whom are Arizona professional artists. The unique gallery is located inside the historic Treehouse building, 6137 E. Cave Creek Rd., in Cave Creek.
Pat Isaacson, a talented glass artist and one of the gallery’s eight co-owners said The Finer Arts Gallery has come a long way since it opened in September 2021.
“When we first opened, we occupied a 2,200 square foot section of the building,” Isaacson said. “Over time, we were able to expand into the full building and add to our roster of fine artists. It has been very rewarding to hear from visitors how warm, inviting, and beautiful our gallery is, and we hope those who have not visited in some time will come see how we’ve grown.”
Landscape painter Linda Lindus, also a gallery co-owner, explained that The Finer Arts Gallery has a unique business model.
“Our desire was to be able to focus exclusively on local artists, Arizona professionals, all of whom we juried prior to offering a space in the gallery. Additionally, we wanted to ensure that the gallery captured the charm of the area by including work that is diverse in both subject and medium. It is reflective of this eclectic area,” Lindus said.
Visitors to The Finer Arts Gallery will find diverse paintings, drawings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, glass, wood, fiber, ceramics, jewelry, and other original work. With more than four dozen fine artists, the gallery features all genres of art, from western to contemporary and even some AI-inspired and Steampunk-inspired art.
The February “Art Affaire” event marks a six-month rotation of art, but the gallery also features four artists every month. In addition, the gallery hosts an “Art Affaire” event on the third Friday of every month.
The Finer Arts Gallery’s February featured artists include:
Jo Adams, Suzie Black, Paulette Galop, Merrily Kulmer
