This is an amazing collection of Western/ Native American Art. It is tucked away in the most unexpected parking lot. IT is a hidden treasure, not busy or crowded and no entrance fee.

This private gallery is free and open to the public. It has a phenomenal collection of over 3000 items of classic western art (oils, bronzes, kachinas, baskets, guns), many illustrative of historical events. A quick walk through will take at least two hours, so plan on returning. There are chairs and sofas that allow a bit if a rest.

Hidden in the unassuming cinderblock building that houses Basha's Grocery corporate headquarters is an amazing treasure trove of western and Native arts. Since it is in the office building, it is not open weekends, only when the office is open. The family has lovingly gathered these over the years and shares it with the community for free! It includes personal... More

Relatives took us to this amazing museum while here for a visit. We've been to western art collections across the country, and this one stands among the best. The family spent the $$$ on the art, not the building. But the art is extensive and amazing! You'll need a couple of hours or more to take it all in, but... More

The location looks quite unassuming but holds an extensive collection of western art. Even if you don't care for western art there is plenty enough to find something of interest. Numerous sculptures and katsinas, woven baskets from various tribal groups, art in various mediums from character studies, cowboys, animals and American Indians. Maybe some artists are over-represented and I would... More

The Kidd return to school and have great memories and stories to tell. Chandler is lucky to have such a great art gallery and s family who wants... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this little hidden treasure tucked away in Chandler. It is absolutely a must see. We were amazed at the many Cowboy artists and the many Native American baskets and artifacts in this collection. It is something we will attend over and over again. Thank you Basha Family for sharing this with the public.

Beautiful gallery with paintings, bronze sculptures, and woven baskets. This is a wonderful place with western themed paintings by varied artists. There is no fee to get in...and you can easily spend an hour walking through.

We have toured several art galleries that feature western art and this is one of the best for original content and unknown painters

Four of us went at 1:30 this past Thursday the 7th. All thinking we would be there about one hour! Really. We were there over 2 hours, very close to the 4:00 closing time. This exhibit is truly amazing. All the sculptures, paintings, baskets, jewelry and the list goes on. There is also a section where framed letters, notes, jokes... More
