Many of the beautiful watercolors are by one of the gallery owners, Georgette Grey. Southwestern landscapes and flowers are frequent subjects. In addition to paintings by other local artists, there are custom postcards, sculptures, pottery, jewelry, and handmade accessories. A delightful gallery to visit while...More

Visited one Friday afternoon. The gallery wasn't busy --a shame--but the displays were attractive, the art is amazing. A good variety of art, from originals to prints...from inexpensive items to quality-priced items. A good variety of art forms and artists. Good Job, gallery owners!

While visiting family in Socorro, we wandered around the Plaza and stopped in Vertu. The gallery hosts a beautiful collection of art, from pottery to sculptures, to lovely watercolors. The owners are very friendly and welcoming.
