- New works by Betty Carr, David Harlan, Pat Lambrecht-Hould, Douglas Miley, Doug Oliver, Dorothy Ray, and G. Eric Slayton are showcased in “Prescott Masters Present,” through Nov. 1, at Mountain Artists Guild & Gallery. Pictured is “August Fields,” an oil on panel, 10"H x 20"W, by Slayton. A resident of Prescott, the artist says the painting was inspired during a visit to Peeples Valley in central Arizona, where horse and cattle ranches dot the landscape. On a day of outdoor painting, Slayton came across this lone horse grazing in the heat of the day, so he pulled out his paints and got to work. For more information, call (928) 776-4009.
