  • Is your favorite color warm and sunny, or is it cool like water? Does it appear with the rain, or does it glow and shine in the sun?
  • Warm colors — such as red, yellow, and orange; evoke warmth because they remind us of things like the sun or fire.
  • Cool colors — such as blue, green, and purple (violet); evoke a cool feeling because they remind us of things like water or grass.
  • The average person can see 17,000 colors (!), that is the range of colors that unites elements of geography, geology, and the different kinds of light created by atmosphere, season, and latitude. From purple mountain majesty, the green hues found on the Organ Pipe Cactus and in Yellowstone’s quaking aspens, to the reds that highlight the rocks in Sedona and the giant sequoias in California, we learn a new appreciation for the colors of the West―and how the details of natural beauty can be revealed when we stop, observe, and pay attention.
  • In its general color, the Grand Canyon is red, but each stratum or group of strata has a distinctive hue—buff and gray, delicate green and pink, or, in its depths, brown, slate-gray, and violet. Coppers, gold, silvers, grays, umber, and ochre landscape.
  • With a touch of purple, Sleeping Beauty turquoise, or blue, you can take advantage of the Arizona sun and bright summer skies.
  • Western landscapes help convey these colors, along with individual native species of cactus, trees, birds, mammals, and other flora and fauna, including dusty ghost towns and historical sites.
  • Show us your colors of the West!

The Gallery is primarily staffed by volunteers who learn how to interact with art patrons and share their enthusiasm for art.

Every month the Featured Artist Wall highlights one or more artists that are established in the art world or a group of artists, such as those in the Prescott Area Artists Studio Tour or Plein Air Artists of Arizona.
