August Exhibition width=Sedona Arts Center Gallery featuring
a Creative Monsoon in August

August 5–30, 2016

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.”

Thau, who was named Gallery Director in July, succeeds long-time Director Shirley Eichten Albrecht. Thau noted that the August exhibition includes paintings, ceramics, photography, mixed media, colored pencil, jewelry, sculpture, glass, and mixed media by some of our region’s most interesting artists. 

Featured in the Blowin’ in the Wind exhibition are Suzy Allan, Elaine Belvin, Mary Lois Brown, Adryanna B. Ciera, Gale Craig, Richard Drayton, Dee Durkee, Rita Elkins, Julie Bernstein Engelmann, Mary Flaisig, John Foster, Evelyn Gholson, David Haskell, Mary Heyborne, Joyce Killebrew, Sue Horine, Sue Hunter, Joanna Irwin, Michael Chesley Johnson, Mariann Leahy, Margo Mitchell, Susan Moody, V Norton, Christie Palmer, Laura Pokorny, Julie Gilbert Pollard, Ron Schneider, Deborah Stromsdorfer, Julie Ronning Talbot, Nori Thorne, Karlene Voepel, Lanie Widmar, Karl Williams, Kathryn Willis, and Joanie Wolter.

As part of its regular gallery programming, Sedona Arts Center will also offers free artist demonstrations all month long, as well as the Summer Members’ Co-op exhibition in the historic Art Barn. 

“The Member Co-op show is a non-juried showcase of local talent and new works, by artists who are members of the Arts Center,” said Deputy Director Vince Fazio. “As we end the summer, both of our buildings are filled with diverse local art for the public to view and enjoy. All of the creative people involved are helping us continue the Arts Center's 60-year tradition as Sedona’s source of creative energy and activity."

Coming up in September...

Razzmatazz!
September 1–October 4, 2016

Featuring: Lanie Widmar (Watercolor), Gale Craig (Mixed Media), Susan Pitcairn (Oil, Pastel), Joan Roberts (Jewelry), Karl Williams (Ceramics)

From festive watercolors to vibrantly colored pastels, the September show at Sedona Arts Center will definitely grab your attention. The public is invited to Razzmatazz, an exhibition on view in the Art Center’s Uptown gallery from September 2 through October 4. The show begins with a public reception on September 2 from 5 to 8pm, as part of the First Friday in the Galleries program, where works by Gale Craig, Susan Pitcairn, Joan Roberts, Lanie Widmar and Karl Williams will be featured. 

Here’s a little more about this month’s featured artists:

Gale Craig is a mixed media artist, who paints using oils, acrylic and encaustic, a 2000-year-old wax process, to create the feeling of movement and energy, which are her inspiration.

Susan Pitcairn is passionate about the spiritual purpose of art to inspire and uplift. A gifted painter and poet she often combines these art forms into an expression of the inner world of the landscape.

Joan Roberts works in jewelry design have become a passion as she looks for new ways to create distinctive art pieces. Working in metal clay – silver, gold, bronze, copper – she portrays the organic essence of nature, providing a broad spectrum and uniqueness in her work.

Lanie Widmar is an architect by profession and is drawn to painting the ancient ruins, native villages and monuments that mark a historic place in mankind’s journey on this earth.

Karl Williams describes his work as, “out of the box and ahead of the wake.” The natural elements of wood, glass, stone, steel, copper, cane and clay are combined into these unique creations.
