The Finer Arts Gallery

With the new year comes a new look for The Finer Arts Gallery in Cave Creek, as the artist-owned gallery gets a major refresh of art, including from Chandler’s Sandy Ashbaugh, a ceramicist. Ashbaugh has hand-carved sake sets and vessels at the gallery.

In addition, three artists are being featured: fused glass artist Pat Isaacson; Arizona landscape painter Linda Lindus; and custom jewelry maker Jan Stiles.

They join more than 30 other artists in a wide variety of mediums, including ceramics, bronze, gourds, photography, metal sculpture, wood live edge, fiber sculpture, graphite, acrylic, pastel and oil.

“We’ve been so pleased with how the community has embraced our new gallery,” said Linda Lindus, a  managers. “It is such a joy when a patron purchases a piece of art they absolutely love.”

The gallery holds a monthly meet and greet on the third Friday of the month, with the next scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, March 18, with three new featured artists.

Regular gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday and by appointment. 

The Finer Arts Gallery is on the picturesque road winding through Cave Creek and Carefree, in the rustic building known as the Cave Creek Station. It’s shaded by a grand, 150-year-old Tamarisk tree, fondly remembered by residents as the “Treehouse.” Located at 6137 E. Cave Creek Road, Cave Creek, the gallery is between Big Earl’s and the Cave Creek Olive Oil Company. Parking is in the rear of the building adjacent to the back entrance.
