The fourth weekend in April marks the annual Sedona Open Studios Tour from 10am-5pm both Saturday and Sunday. Visit artists in their natural environment and enjoy live music, appetizers and great company as you go from studio to studio. Get to know a deeper level of artistry, watch the masters work, and maybe even fall in love with a piece that’s the perfect keepsake from your Sedona adventure.
The Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition is the host of the event, now in its 13th year. A celebration of all artists in the greater Verde Valley, the artist-operated non-profit welcomes thousands of visitors each year. Artists’ participation fees fully fund the tours, which makes it a free community event for all.
A Real Work of Art
In 2016, more than 40 studios will be participating, and every imaginable medium will be on display. Enjoy ceramics, fiber, watercolors, painting, sculpture, photography, and even jewelry making. The Coalition was founded in 1996 with nine artist friends who were passionate about conversations and the sharing of creative ideas.
A common bond can strengthen each individual artist. Now, there are more than 150 shows hosted by the Coalition each year. In 2006, the group gained non-profit status and has been featured in the Sedona Monthly magazine. Show your support, and indulge in a weekend of artistry to see another beautiful slice of Sedona.
