Check Out Sedona’s vibrant art scene

Sedona not only offers astounding natural beauty, it is also home to a thriving arts and culture scene, with art galleries, historical attractions, museums and art festivals that will enrich and inspire.

Today, Sedona is home to more than 200 artists of every medium and aesthetic bent. It is an art community of ruggedly individualistic expression, from cutting-edge contemporary to visionary, Native American to modern realism.

This burgeoning level of cultural activity helped foster Sedona’s reputation as a destination. Sedona now rivals Santa Fe and Scottsdale in its richness of the arts.

Where there is art, there are galleries, and more than 40 exhibit a wide spectrum of Southwestern, Western and Native American arts. The galleries showcase contemporary, representational and traditional artists who are known nationally and internationally.

This creates a full calendar of openings, artist receptions, demonstrations and workshops to keep the art aficionado entertained year ’round.

From 5-8 p.m. on the first Friday of every month, Sedona’s most prominent galleries host an evening of openings, technique demonstrations and receptions. The Sedona Trolley offers free transportation as it makes a continuous loop among the studios. Details: Sedona Gallery Association, 928-282-7390 or www.sedonagalleryassociation.com.
