We went to the Phippen Western Art Show on Saturday. The first photo is a 5 image panorama of the show taken from the steps on the north side of the Yavapai County Courthouse.

A couple of items that caught my eye were a pair of javelina statues and a sculpture of a peregrine falcon. Very nice pieces, but way out of my budget range 😦

Here are a couple of works being created at the show.

One of the highlights is the  fast draw contest, artists have 1 hour to produce a piece that is sold right there at auction after the contest. Here are some of the contestants at work.
