The Fine Art Gallery June Show Celebrates the Season of the Solstice

Sedona Arts Center celebrates the seasons with the June gallery exhibition, Summer Solstice, which begins with a public reception at 5pm on June 3. The show features new works by Viki Norris, Chrisanne Finefrock, Julie Ronning Talbot, and Nori Thorne and combines pastels, acrylics, jewelry and watercolor. 

“This quartet of artists represents the incredible talent we have in our community,” said the Arts Center’s Jenny Reed. “Visitors this summer will discover a gallery filled with diverse artists, mediums, and forms of expression—all created locally."

Viki Norris has been designing jewelry for over 30 years using Italian wire mesh, a fine brass or copper wire that is enamel coated and woven together. Her handmade jewelry incorporates real leaves electroplated in gold, silver and copper, and each piece is cut, molded, melted and tumbled to create unique patterns and colors.

For over 40 years Chrisanne Finefrock has been mastering acrylics, and painting and teaching all over the world. She now calls Sedona home, and brings some fantastic new canvases to our gallery for Summer Solstice. Her paintings and murals appear in many private collections, museums and other institutions worldwide. 

Julie Ronning Talbot is fascinated with watercolor. Her paintings are vibrant with precise details, and an expert hand at rendering weathered barnwood, rusty fenders, a country field, an eye-popping bushel of apples, or vibrant flower petals. 

"My transparent watercolors focus on the romantic realism of the beauty around us,” says Talbot. "I find as much pleasure in a rusty truck as in an unfolding rose."

A recent addition to Sedona, Nori Thorne has traveled the world teaching and refining her landscapes, plein air technique, and pastel images. Thorne has spent the past decade amassing awards for her work, and showing at dozens of significant group exhibitions and festivals. She is currently working on a series of paintings inspired by ancient ruins and pictographs found in the red rock canyons near Sedona.

“We invite the community to visit the Arts Center as the dog days approach, meet the artists, and collect works by our region’s best and most creative,” says Reed, "Join us on Friday June 3 for the Summer Solstice Opening Reception and First Friday Gallery Walk from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. We promise fun and stimulating evening with the arts."
