Building History

  • In 1963, James Kirkpatrick and is wife, Ila Beatrice established the Kirkpatrick Gallery of Art. This was a place townspeople and tourists could watch him work. In 1983, one year before his death, they donated the gallery to the Jamestown Fine Arts Association. Today, it sits in the town’s Frontier Village and is used by the association as a gallery and sales space for local artists.
