Check out the newly remodeled Jerome's Jewelry. It looks fabulous. Jerome’s Jewelry’s features an awesome collection of custom jewelry designs created by father and son team Rick and Ricky Hernandez. Jewelry artist Rick Hernandez has been creating spectacular custom jewelry for over 20 years in 14k gold and sterling silver using Australian Opal, Diamond, Tanzanite, and Amethyst, along with many other of gemstones. Rick's son, Rick II, has followed in his father's footsteps, and specializes in the unique art of handcrafted silver work. Rick II has designed some very creative pieces - his artistic work is usually more on the contemporary side, using Drusy (a specialty gemstone having small crystallized formations from inside a geode). Recently, Rick II wife April has been creating a unique line of jewelry using keys and gears with a mechanical Steampunk flair. April also has created a wide variety of extraordinary cameo chokers and rings. Mark your calendar for July 5th and enjoy a wonderful Summer Evening at Jerome’s Jewelry Art Walk.

Jerome's Artist’s Cooperative Gallery Summer Membership Show: “Anything Goes!” Un-juried works by current members. The Jerome Artists' Cooperative Gallery displays and sells unique works of art created by its 33 local members. The members were selected by a gallery jury committee seeking artwork that represents a high standard of workmanship and originality in a particular media. But artists usually don't work in just one medium; they like to explore and experiment. That's what keeps them growing as artists. In July, you'll be able to view at the Jerome Co-op a collection of un-juried, never-before-displayed artwork. The show entitled “Anything Goes!” reflects another side of Co-op artists' creativity. They are looking forward to sharing with you some of their other talents. Co-op members are a creative bunch who invite you to join in the fun of discovering their other artistic endeavors. “Anything Goes!” opens July 5th with Art Walk from 5-8 PM and runs through July 30. Gallery hours are daily from 10 AM – 6 PM

Gallery 527 hosts The Stain of Politics 7. This yearly July show began as a comment on the world around us and has evolved into less of a visual arts show and more of a performing arts event. Christopher Fox Graham will bring a group of talented poets for a night of poetry of all sorts with music by local favorite Dave Rentz. Michael Gallagher of The Wary Buffalo will contribute his yearly cartoon and new artist Rhonda Zwillinger’s mixed media pieces SHIVA and Dada Toy on Wheels will be on display. Poets will perform at 6pm and again at 7pm.
