Sometimes you stumble onto the coolest things
Your typist today – MaryFor Artsy Fartsy Tuesday today, I’m going to share this great place that we just stumbled upon. When we left Quartzsite last Friday, we drove on Highway 60 to get to Wickenburg. We passed through a tiny little burg called Wenden. We pass through numerous little towns in our travels, and if we see something awesome, we try to stop. Pulling a fifth wheel makes it a lot harder to just pull over and stop, so we have to really want to circle back and see a place to make a stop there. that was the case here. At first we thought this was a motel, a brightly painted motel. On closer look, we realized it was an old motel that had been converted to an art gallery. Ok, that makes it a must stop. The buildings were all painted so cute, and the yard art was amazing too. The woman that owns it, is the creator of most of the art that was in the court yard. The coolest glass and metal wind chimes, fun birdhouses, and so many other things. She was very friendly and told us how she had bought the run down motel a few years ago, and fixed it up nicely to create this art gallery. All of the buildings had art in them. Some from local people, some from people as far away as Wyoming. If I had extra money and space, I could have bought some very unique things. The buildings and the way she had the outside decorated, was incredibly artistic. I love how she fixed everything up, and left the old funky sign up. It just goes to show you, art can be found in the strangest places, and when you least expect it. So when you are traveling down the road, and go through these little towns on the way, be sure to stop, you never know what you’ll find.
