  • Beautiful Gallery with some very unusual works, in a gorgeous old building with stunning views out the large glass windows in the back.  more »
  • Seeing galleries like this makes me wish we had more places to display nice art works. Lots of unique pieces, many of which are simply stunning. And the view of the valley is the best. Worth a stop to...  more »

  • Long before Tracy opened the Raku Gallery he had a modest little pottery shop not far from Aurum Jewelry. His Downhill Trading Co. was the kind of place where you'd walk in and find Tracy sitting at his potter's wheel spinning a new creation. Jerome got most of its visitors back then on Holidays and good weather weekends. Fast forward: when Tracy moved further uptown and renovated an old building there, I was immediately blown away. It was sometime in the early 80's I want to say that I walked into his new place and gazed immediately out of a floor-to-ceiling glass window wall. Big, big panes of safety glass that framed the old "One-In-A-Million" Jerome view of the Verde Valley, Sedona's red rock cliffs further out, and finally the San Francisco Peaks 30-40 miles distant, rising above Flagstaff on top of the Colorado Plateau. Holy you-know, Tracy had created the perfect space to both enjoy wonderful art pieces and display while gazing now and then at eternity through that window wall. Today it is still that same amazing place, with even more years of experience and new artists' work. This is a must visit place in northern Arizona. When in Jerome, walk on over and expect to be dazzled in multiple ways once you walk through his showroom's door.
