Louis Buchetto opened My Art Place Gallery to display the works of only one artist - himself! He now also sells cards made by his 5-year-old daughter! The works sold here are colorful and vibrant, and definitely not the typical high-end gallery merchandise. You will find bright prints, and landscapes with witty sayings, and even custom-made magnets. Go through the 'Loving Home' series and you might find a couple of prints you like. Customers can also get murals and furniture hand-painted by Louis. You can now order these unusual pieces online.
Located in the heart of downtown Flagstaff this small gallery, with it's bare brick walls and contrasting stark white walls, hardwood floors, and appropriately subdued track lighting, gives one the feeling of an intimate and personal art experience. Echo Canyon Arts holds a series of events throughout the year that include first time showings for up-and-coming and well-known artists, as well as group shows and ongoing displays. Receptions, which often include local musical talent, are another regular occurrence. The gallery was conceived as a partnership between the photographers Jay Showers and Richard and Elaine Morrison. In addition to showing photography, the owners also present ceramics, raku ware, whimsical paintings, items of furniture, blown glass, fused glass, sculpture, jewelry, carved gourds, and new furniture lines. This lovely gallery is a must-see while walking through downtown Flagstaff. -Herman Sims

The park also includes picnic grounds and a visitors center with exhibits. Guided tours of the mansion and grounds are held at regular times throughout the day.
