6th Annual West of Center: Highlights of the Wickenburg Art Club

Wickenburg's love affair with the arts goes back over half a century. The Desert Caballeros Western Museum, founded in 1960, has become internationally recognized for its creative exhibitions and programming. The Wickenburg Art Club, founded in 1964, teaches workshops and classes at its own facility and presents numerous art exhibitions and festivals around the Wickenburg community.

Each year, the Museum and the Art Club join forces to mount the annual "West of Center: Highlights of the Wickenburg Art Club" exhibition and sale. The Museum turns over its Cultural Crossroads Learning Center to the Art Club, which curates and juries an exhibition of artwork by its talented members. The diversity of mediums, including oil, photography, gourds, and bronzes, reflect the diversity of experiences and perspectives that each member brings to the Art Club.

This year's show runs from July 29 through October 29, 2017. The Wickenburg Art Club will hold an opening reception on Friday, July 28 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public; this the first opportunity to purchase art, and many of the featured artists will be in attendance. Each Saturday during the run of the show, an exhibiting member of the Art Club holds a free art demonstration from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. in the Learning Center. The full schedule is available online at westernmuseum.org.

"West of Center" is your chance to add a unique work to your collection while supporting local artists: all of the pieces on exhibit are available for purchase, with 100% of proceeds benefitting the members of the Wickenburg Art Club.
