Jerome poet and photographer Patrick Lincoln says, “I remain in the New State Motor building, making art as hard as I can and giving a 1936 Plymouth and Jerome’s spiffy-est bathrooms a stiff run for the foremost attraction of the building. Remember, The Lincoln Gallery ” Not just art, not just fine art, but Damn Fine Art!”

Cody is back in the Studio after participating in the Zion National Park, Plein Air Invitational. Cody was one of the top sellers at that event. Back in Jerome, Cody has re-hung the gallery with several new works including some new paintings of Jerome. “I’ve been experimenting with a softer treatment in these paintings, and bringing out the rich patina on some of the old buildings and trucks. My ‘Industrial Chickens’ series continues as well” Cody DeLong Studio/Gallery 300 Hull Ave. next to the Visitors Center in Jerome. CodyDeLong.com 928-300-4576
