|One Oak - Tehachapi, California|
|Cathedral Rock Reflected - Sedona, Arizona|
Those locations are not only great for buying and selling art, but also for creating it. The pull to each location is different, but there is something that pulls the eye and imagination there.
For Sedona and the Grand Canyon, it's the natural beauty and wonder of those locations that attracts the artist. It's difficult to not be moved and inspired. Sedona attracts the wealthy and eccentric collector, while the Grand Canyon attracts the tourist collector.

Jerome is a quirky town with an old west history. It's hard to put a finger on exactly what Jerome is--or why it has survived--but it is certainly unique. That peculiar place attracts a different kind of artist and collector.

The Tehachapi area ranges from desert, to prairie, to oak dotted hills, to pine forest. Just as diverse are the area's history and culture. Native Americans called the area home for hundreds of years, and there are presently a unique blend of Hispanic, American southwest, Asian, and Mediterranean cultures (among others).
|Burger Spot - Tehachapi, California|
Just as diverse are Tehachapi's artists. Painters, sculptures, jewelers, photographers--pretty much what one would expect. But there are also great food artists (chefs and wineries), authors, and performing artists. For a small town of about 10,000 people--that not long ago was a speck on the map best known for it's apples--that is surprising.
