The Sedona Arts Academy’s Art Exhibition Program is excited to announce the inaugural exhibit in its long- anticipated series of art shows celebrating the visual artists of the Verde Valley.
This initial exhibit will run from March 1 through March 31, 2021, and will feature many fine works from an extraordinary and diverse group of local artists.
The exhibit is open daily from noon to 6PM, and everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the show.
The public is also cordially invited to stop by for a convivial artist’s reception on Saturday, March 6 from 4:30 to 7:00 PM. (COVID precautions will be in effect for everyone who enters the exhibit.)
The exhibit includes dazzling and inspiring works from nine esteemed local artists. Sandra Beck, for example, is a distinguished watercolor painter whose style is best described as a cross between realism and impressionism. Her favorite subjects are pets and people.
Photographer Elaine Belvin creates images that celebrate her artistic and technological skills and include wildlife and landscape photos from the American Southwest, Africa, and other travel destinations.
Richard Gandolfo paints plein air landscapes with a contemporary bent. He hopes his oil paintings enable viewers to
“discover a new way to look at the world around them on both a conscious and unconscious level.”
Carol Hildebrand’s current focus is colored pencil and graphite. She captures the essence of her subjects with truth and accuracy as she brings them to life in an almost photographic way.
Cathy Knisley’s works explore different acrylic techniques, including fluid acrylic art and the use of various embellishments, such as resin, crushed glass, gemstones, etc.
Monique Kristofors (Monik) paints in a unique abstract style, reminiscent of Picasso. Her electric brushstrokes and bold palette reflect the depths and heights of human emotion.
SanDee Kinnen’s long and varied career has had one constant: “involvement in the arts.” She has worked in various artistic media and will be showing works in graphite and colored pencil in the March exhibit.
Kozmo Mraz, a Grammy-nominated musician and world traveler, creates large acrylic works that celebrate motion, drama, contrast, and color.
He characterizes his dramatic artwork as “Future/Primitive.”
Karl L. Williams is a ceramist who has recently transitioned from throwing on the wheel to hand sculpting in clay. In his latest line of exquisite pieces, he uses the female torso as a palette on which to depict strength, purity and complexity.
