You’re invited to Exposures International Gallery of Fine Art in Sedona for a Spring Artist Show featuring the work of Eric Lee and Penelope Bushman. Stop by this Friday, March 19th from 3-8pm and Saturday, March 20th from 1-5pm to meet the artists and enjoy their work.
Eric Lee is an artist who creates original acrylic paintings on glass. Each one of his pieces shows his passion for color and rhythm. The beauty of Lee’s work lies in the astute blending of hues and colors combined with the artist’s media of choice – acrylic on glass. The colors move as if floating in air, luminous and caressing to the eye. The glass is never glaring but instead calming and weightless.
Penelope Bushman creates original oil paintings that feature rich textures that testify to the artist’s early training in sculpture. Breathing new life into ancient imagery, she portrays her sentinels and shamans with vibrant colors and rich patterns. Her abstract compositions are magical conceptual journeys that explore human emotion and touch the soul.
Exposures Gallery is located at 561 Hwy 179, Sedona, AZ 86336. For more information, call the gallery at 928.282.1125.

"Sedona Eclipse" Mixed Media Original by Frasca & Halliday
“Some of the most wonderful and talented artists in the world…”
Where: Exposures International Gallery of Fine Art, located on Highway 179 1/4 mile south of “The Y” intersection where 89A & Hwy 179 meet.
Date: October 24th, 2009
Time: 12 – 5 p.m.
Artists Featured: Frasca & Halliday
Connie Frasca and Karen Halliday, master sculptors whose work includes exotic wood panels and redwood vessels, are celebrating nearly a decade at Exposures with a special artist exhibition. We invite you to join us for a fantastic art event this weekend!
Connie Frasca and Karen Halliday (Frasca Halliday) owned and operated a very sophisticated and highly technical Aerospace machinery facility. The parts they manufactured were of extremely tight tolerances, which ultimately were delivered and used by the United States military.
Their careers segued on to building stately customer homes of subtle grandeur in Pinnacle Peak. From trick faux painting, plaster wall accents, tile and stone, fountains, welding, plasma cutting, one of a kind furniture construction, titanium maching, carved sculptures and birch wall art-their art soared to new levels. With only the use of dyes to create thought provoking images and designs accented with inlay work utilizing many various stones, they turned their focus to carving wood vessels. Their natural artistic talents backed by logical engineering allows them to create with a vast knowledge and experience in many different mediums.
Currently their thrust is carving and shaping exotic woods such as buckeye, redwood, maple burs, lace wood, marine, manzanita, cottonwood, ironwood cocobolo, Russian Pine, and mesquite. Frasca & Halliday travel the country over looking for the most unusual pieces to sculpt into a beautiful blend between man “or woman” and nature. When 107 lb Karen, who does a lot of sculpting, whips a chains saw around like a logger, she catches a few looks from this incongruous sight.
No two pieces will ever be the same because nothing is machined or turned. It’s all hand carved. They have the capacity to do intricate refined furniture with detailed inlays, but at this time have chosen to less geometric work and more warm, free-flowing sculpted pieces that are very functional and always command good conversation.
Each year a new limited edition is released. Both personalities agree to be truly evolving with “CLEARLY” unique concepts leading the way rather than following works that have been modified and modified by others. As their past implies, they both have a restless desire and need for constant artistic challenge.
The name “Frasca” is of Italian decent and means new growth or fresh twig. Being Irish and Native American, could explain the light hearted and spiritual balance of Karen’s work. Their style is timeless and definitely collectable.
Exposures Gallery is one of the largest and most well-known Sedona galleries featuring the works of hundreds of world-renowned artists all in one place. It is located on S.R. 179, 1/4 mile south of the S.R. 179/89A intersection. Looking for a place to stay in Sedona while you’re here? Find a Sedona hotel here.
