Greetings, everyone! I have to admit that I’ve missed you. Now that I have returned from my sabbatical, it’s time once again for me to get into gear and get busy with the Sedona Plein Air Festival. This is year eight for the Sedona Arts…

“Color”

Imagine your world in monotone. Go ahead, close your eyes and see everything in varying shades of gray. Envision every flower and blade of grass, every red rock and sunset – without color. Now reverse that. When we think of the visual arts, we often…

Art should never be painful torture or likened to walking headfirst, eyes closed into an ocotillo. It should be as easy as pie – simple and distilled through a joyful expression of the self. In a perfect world, creativity and productivity get married and have…

I’ve had an eventful and spectacular past few weeks/months. You may have even noticed this due to the tumbleweeds and dust blowing around this blog. The fact is, I’ve been busy designing catalogs, ads and posters for the Arts Center while getting extra creative before…

“Beautiful Sedona”

There’s no doubt whatsoever, that Sedona is a beautiful place. Four million people visit Sedona each year to bask in the magnificence of the red rocks and spectacular high desert surroundings. For some, this beauty translates into a spiritual experience, while others find the tranquility…

Time sure flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? It also flies when you’re working on hard deadlines, major projects and when you’re just trying to catch up with life. I’ve been spending the last few weeks doing exactly that (deadlines; projects; life). When I…

Art can be recycled, replaced, redesigned, and transform into innumerable forms by the artists who create them. Those same remarkable works of art can then find their way into a home, business, gallery, or square. And sometimes, those very same pieces will take journeys unlike…

Have you ever noticed that art sometimes mutates right before our very eyes? We’ve seen art recycled, replaced, redesigned and transformed into countless forms. From sculptures that come alive, to drawings that become digital animations our art can be anything we want it to be.…

What defines art? Who determines what is art and what isn’t art? Why are dots sometimes more valuable than portraits, while sculptures of giant titanium screws can out-match the classics? These are questions we’ve asked over time that may never truly have a diplomatic answer.…

This week something new and magical is happening in Sedona. (Just like any other week in this beautiful wonderland, right?) The first Roundabouts Art installations will make their appearance in just a few days! Ken Rowe and Kim Kori were the selected finalists in the…

What do you think of when you hear the word artist? If you are an artist, the definition could include words like: blood, sweat, tears, solitude, failed works, joyful successes and so much more. If you aren’t one, you might imagine someone eating grapes, lounging…

As an artist, early on I had to learn to accept the customariness of disappointment. I suppose we all have to conform to this in life, artist or not – but as a creative person, who places their heart and soul out on a string,…

Art is big business for some and small business for others. No matter which category you fall into, the art industry can sometimes escape you. True artists will say that they have no interest in the ‘business side’ of art while hoping for a good…

If you asked me years ago if I thought self publishing was a good idea, I would have given you mixed messages. I would have presented to you an extensive list of pros and cons and why going with a traditional publisher is the only…

It’s that time of year once again, where we look back on all the accomplishments, failures and creations that left their mark on us over the last 365 days. Despite the tumultuous economy, slashing of budgets and dismissal of art in society – it’s been…
