Sedona Arts Center Gallery featuring a Creative Monsoon in August
New Exhibition “Blowin’ In The Wind” showcases over 30 Local Artists

It’s the monsoon season in Arizona, and Sedona Arts Center’s upcoming exhibition pays tribute to this special time of year. The public is invited to the latest exhibition, Blowin’ in the Wind, on view in the Center’s Uptown gallery from August 5 to 30. The group show begins with a public reception on August 5 from 5 to 8pm, as part of the First Friday program, where works by over 30 artists will be featured and celebrated. 

“Monsoon season is a magical time in Northern Arizona, with cloud formations, afternoon rains, and dramatic lightning displays above our red rocks. The gallery artists have taken that as an inspiration, and the August exhibition is both a celebration of local talent as well as our landscape and environment.” says Cyndi Thau, the Arts Center’s new Gallery Director. “We invite the public to stop by, learn about the wonderful creative people in our midst, and meet them at the opening night reception.”
