The new 2,734 square foot art gallery celebrated its grand opening on August 3rd, 2019. The public enjoyed viewing the collection of original paintings and bronze sculpture by artists from the western states and beyond, including Canada and New Zealand.
The gallery represents established painters and bronze sculptors who are represented multi-state in galleries, museums and major art shows. The second Saturday of each month has been established as the 'Second Saturday Event', which features one or more artists. Often the featured artists demo their techniques for the public to enjoy.

Pamela Claflin, owner, founded and managed the Mockingbird Gallery in Bend, OR, from 1989 to 2007. She sold it to the current owner, Jim Peterson. She spent her childhood in Prineville, growing up below Ochoco Dam. She recalls the times when she and her three brothers would take turns staying home from school to irrigate the twin pastures. Years later, Pamela says, “her 'claim to fame' is that Les Schwab purchased the farm she grew up on! He filmed his beef commercials on those same twin pastures." On August 3, 2019, upon seeing a perfect building available in her home town, she remodeled it and opened the new Rimrock Gallery.
The gallery is located on 3rd St/Hwy 26 and Deer Street across from McDonald's, and will be open six days a week, closed on Mondays. It has convenient off-street parking with several spaces at the front door.
