First Friday at Sedona Art Gallery
by: Editor on 2/2/2017
Every first Friday from 5 – 8 p.m., the local Sedona Gallery Association hosts a showcase of local artists and exhibits. The receptions give visitors and local artists alike the chance to wine, dine (or enjoy appetizers in most cases) and start the weekend filled with the magic of the Sedona art scene. The Sedona Trolley offers free transportation from gallery to gallery, and the Sedona Art Gallery is proud to be a featured venue space.
Sedona has been a major player in the global art scene for decades. In 1931, the sculptors Robert and Kay Kittredge came to Sedona and fell in love with the inspirational beauty of the area. It’s also been home to Dorothea Tanning and Max Ernst, as well as Nassan Gobran and several more artists. The Sedona Arts Center was founded in 1958, with the first show featuring the Dada movement.
What to Expect
Sedona is a well-known arts hub, and creatives have gathered in the area for years to help it grow. The galleries are full of emerging artists while still boasting established works. The New York Times calls Sedona the “New West Enclave,” and it’s a hot spot for collectors.
You’ll find special speakers talking about the art scene with the red rocks as a backdrop. The member galleries of the SGA include the Sedona Art Gallery and are all committed to offering the best in quality and integrity. Come discover your inspiration on February’s First Friday.
