Featured Artist


Sharon has been a woodcarver since 1984. She went to the Indio State Fair and observed carvers for three hours, went home and started to carve! After many classes and workshops she has sold everything she has carved. "I still carve every day for a little while and still love doing it" Her "little people" are the things she is well-known for.....after carving 1868 of them. And, they are all numbered and signed on the bottom. Sharon also does larger carvings and enjoys doing the "Forest Faces" that she carves from the pine and fir knots that she finds on her hikes in the mountains.


High Country Art Association - Who we are

The High Country Art Association was founded in 1974 by a small group of artists who wanted to share their love of art. At present we have over 60 members. Membership consists of many artists working in a variety of mediums. Membership is open to the general public. We have members who are neither artists nor crafts people, but they love art and being around others that share their interest. The goal of the High Country Art Association is to encourage and promote the artistic growth of the visual arts in the communities of the White Mountains. Our goal is accomplished through a variety of activities.

High Country Art Association's members operate the High Country Art Gallery and Gift Shop to showcase original works of art by local artists. Our volunteer members present the annual July 4th Arts and Crafts Festival that brings artists from all over Arizona and the Southwest. Our commitment to art education is demonstrated by our active scholarship program and workshops. High Country Art Association offers workshops by nationally known artists. These workshops are open to the public and help participating artists improve their skills.

The High Country Art Association is a 501 c(4) organization.
