Tall Tales
Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition
November 15-December 3, 2017
(Closed Thanksgiving)

Each year SVAC artists are challenged to think outside of the box and interpret a theme chosen by the membership.  This year’s fascinating theme challenged the artists to think vertically and stretch their creative wings while also telling a “Tale”.  Exhibition Designer Taylor Hellmann states, "Each of us has a story to tell and what better way to tell that tale than through art."

From whimsical to serious the SVAC artists have interpreted the theme in an array of different mediums and genres such as instillation, sculpture, painting, mixed media, ceramics and glass.

We invite you to explore these exciting works from this eclectic and inspirational group.


Life and Still Life
Linda Sosangelis
November 18 & 19, 2017

A large solo exhibit by classical figurative and still life painter Linda Sosangelis, whose work is inspired by the Old Masters and 19th century academic narratives. Her enduring interest in detailed realism and 19th century Orientalism began as an art student. She bases her work on the return to those standards which demand the knowledge of composition, perspective, color, three-dimensional form, draftsmanship, and anatomy. 

This is a sumptuous collection of paintings that delight the eye, describing the opulent beauty of textiles, fruit, flowers and pottery through color, pattern and detail. Her figures portray richness and splendor using atmospheric lighting, textural specificity and luminosity. Through these paintings, she transcribes the world into something slightly rarefied, a realm in which beauty and harmony reign supreme.

Fred Tomlin and Pauline Georgakis
December 12–19, 2017

Local Artists Pauline Georgakis and Fred Tomlin are having a showing of their works at the Sedona Arts Center Lower Gallery December 12th -19th.  Pauline is a Sedona resident and does oil paintings of the surrounding area as well as some from Greece where she spends her summers. She is a self-taught oil painter of extraordinary talent.  Accompanying her work are the burl tables created by Fred Tomlin.  Fred’s studio is located in Cottonwood.  He creates tables of various sorts and sizes from Redwood burls and Horse Chestnut Buckeye which is a very different type of wood.  Don’t miss this exciting show. The paintings and the tables complement each other very well and the talent of these two artists is genuinely honest and spectacular. 


Women as Birds
Jenny Epperson
January 5-31, 2018

The exhibit begins with a question: “ If you knew when your human life ends you would become a bird, which bird would you choose?”  Ten brave women stepped up with their answer. Each collaborated with feminist artist Jennifer Epperson, whose vision was to create portraits exploring concepts of transformation and transmutation. It took extensive research to get it right.  Ornithology and anatomy, mythology and antiquities all inform the narrative and style of the series. During the months of work, the artist became aware that her own physical change; far from being the normal aging process was in fact, transmutation. This epiphany added fuel to the fire to produce an ironic take on the power of women. Epperson challenges the viewer to consider the symbolism of transmutation, and the extensive supporting history of the transformative power of women to take to the skies and fly. 

The series includes a self-portrait and a video portrait. Events and performances will take place during the month.
