The gallery, as described by Erika Ayn Finch in her December 2016 Sedona Monthly article:

    “Inside a Cottonwood building that was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright to be a dentist’s office in the 1950s, two art lovers have merged their galleries in what is one of the best showcases of contemporary art in the Verde Valley. Patt Manheim, who opened The Manheim Gallery in 2006, and artist Robert Siracusa, who has owned three galleries in the area including, most recently, ARC Contemporary Fine Art, sit side by side in one of the gallery’s brightly lit rooms. “We both have longevity in the region, so we have a local following,” says Robert. “People know what they are going to get from us...

What those visitors are going to get are paintings that are not your typical red rock landscapes and figurative ceramics that are a far cry from practical pottery...Patt and Robert represent about 20 artists. Many of them are from Arizona while others reside in far-off places like Poland and Tel Aviv. “We want this to be an art gallery that doesn’t just exhibit and sell art but educates and presents the art like a museum,” says Robert, who is a sculptor, special-effects makeup artist and a character and concept designer in addition to being a gallery owner. “We’re always thinking about content and what the art means in a broader sense, even to people who’ve never been in the gallery.”


Where: The Manheim Gallery & ARC Contemporary Fine Art, 747 N. Main St. in Old Town Cottonwood (928-202-9070)

When: January 14 through April 1, 2017

Farraday Newsome will be showing Bramblenest Bowl, glazed terra cotta, 14 x 14 x  5.5”, 2017, at this year’s NCECA (National Conference for Education in the Ceramic Arts) in Santa Fe Clay’s annual NCECA exhibit La Mesa.


This year’s conference is titled Portland 2017: Future Flux and will be in Portland, Oregon from March 22 - 25, 2017.

Indigo Street Pottery Native Landscape

One of our large saguaro cacti is sprouting a new arm! We usually don’t notice new arms until they are larger, but Jeff spotted this one! You can’t see it in the photo to the left, which is there for scale, but if you look to the right on the photo to the right, the new arm is emerging as a small nubbin about halfway down. So cute!

It is spring here in the low desert! Our bladderpod (Isomeris arborea), a native of the Mojave Desert, is already blooming.


Our Euphorbia xanti is also native to the Mojave Desert and blooming now. In the right light its small, lovely flowers  look to be suspended in midair on inconspicuous stems.
