We just got back from a two day visit to Sedona, Arizona. It’s the first time for me since I was about 15, when I went there to visit my then girlfriend Becky. Yeha, you read that right.
Things have changed, both in Sedona and in my own life.
One thing that hasn’t changed – Sedona is full of art galleries. We wandered through many of them, but one of our favorites is the Sedona Arts Center.
Located on the northern side of Sedona’s old town area, the Sedona Arts Center has been a part of the Sedona community for almost 60 years. It started in what’s now called The Barn:
…which is now used for classes and rotating exhibits. The day we were there, a local artist was working with a group of kids for an art summer camp. The Sedona Arts Center offers more than 200 classes and workshops annually, including development classes for artists. They also have a couple on-site studios.
They were kind enough to let us take some photos for the blog. One of the artists was there on sales duty – Miro Fitzgerald – I quite like her geometric paintings. That’s hers on the right.
The group is a collective of artists, and the main gallery up front offers a great selection of their wares, something for just about every budget. There’s sculpture, paintings, stained glass, fabric art, and much more.
We initially arrived at the gallery too late to see the inside, but there are also a number of beautiful public works outside for your viewing pleasure:
We liked them so much that we came back the next day to see more. You can find them here:
