Beauty of Light Exhibit, Talented Poets, Pin-up Show
SEDONA, AZ. (April 22, 2008): Mark your calendars for the Sedona Arts Center’s First Friday Activities on May 1st, 5 – 8pm. The evening opens at 4:00pm for an hour of poetry at Poets Corner. Enjoy the return of two audience favorites: KC Baker from San Francisco and Amy Mae Calhoun from Prescott. Opening for them will be Lynn Heil from Sedona who will be reading his poetry publicly for the first time. Poets Corner performances will be followed by opening receptions from 5 – 8pm for the Center’s two new exhibits. Join us for evening of art and fun! Everyone is invited – no admission for the events.
The Fine Art Gallery’s May exhibit, “Beauty of Light,” is one that you do not want to miss. The show features the unique works of four talented member artists: Marlys K. Mallet and Michael Redhawk with their captivating Unison Series, amazing art quilts by Jane Defoe, beautiful ceramic art by Dennis Ott, and exquisite jewelry by Michael Redhawk. The exhibit will run through June 3rd ~ open daily from 10am – 5pm.
The 4th Annual Sedona Pin-Up Show, located in the Community Gallery, is a celebration of art in the raw – ready for you to find those pieces you cannot live without – and later enjoy the experience of choosing the matting and frames that will harmonize perfectly with your home or office decor. This could be the opportunity of a lifetime to buy a piece created by a local well-known artist or possibly one yet undiscovered at a very reasonable price. Everything in the show will be priced from $50 to $500 – something is bound to catch your eye – and match your pocketbook! This unusual and exciting exhibition runs for only three days! It opens with the reception on Friday, May 1st from 5 – 8pm and continues on Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday, May 3rd from 10am – 5pm.
The Annual Pinup Show was organized four years ago to attract a wide variety of artists from all around the area. The show is unusual for Sedona and the Arts Center because it is non-juried and open to all artists of any level from Yavapai and Coconino Counties – including children.
Begin the evening with the Poetry Readings in the Sculpture Garden, join the revelry and buying frenzy at the 4th Annual Pin-up Show in the Community Gallery, and bask in the beauty of the unique creations by the featured artists in the Fine Art Gallery.
