Russell Johnson Phippen Show artist

Upcoming Phippen Show in Downtown Prescott May 25-27, 2019

The 45th Annual Western Show and Sale will take place May 25-27, 2019 at the courthouse plaza in downtown Prescott, AZ. This show is open to all and is a wonderful display showcasing the best fine art show of the year for Prescott. For the first time ever, I will be showing acrylic paintings along with oils for my 7th year in this show. My booth is #80, in the northwest corner of the courthouse plaza. Stop by and see what is new! Plan to be dazzled by vibrant textural palette knife paintings. I will be a participating artist for the thrilling Quick Draw event on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 2pm. The Quick Draw event is a museum fundraiser where artists are given one hour to complete a painting, which will then be auctioned off right after. The shows hours are Saturday and Sunday 9:00-5:00 and Monday 9:00-3:00. Here is a schedule of events for the 3-day show: https://www.phippenartmuseum.org/events-programs/western-art-show-sale/western-art-show-sale-schedule-of-events.
