Computer club aims to increase membership & fight online scams

More than 50 people assembled at the Clemenceau Museum Saturday for a presentation on fraud, but they also got a dose of bad news — the Verde Valley Computer Club,...

Have you heard about the Jackson Pollock bought at a thrift store for $5? Or how about the original version of the Declaration of Independence in a Tennessee thrift store that sold for $2.48 in 2007? Or perhaps you heard about the original Picasso found at a garage sale for $2?

“One person’s trash is another person’s treasure”

Although we’re not claiming $1Million finds, this statement couldn’t be truer this weekend at Sedona Arts Center’s rummage sale. We’ve been cleaning house and hanging, stacking and resting paintings on walls. Besides having the opportunity to take home a Marilyn Sunderman estate painting at a bargain, I’ve personally witnessed a trove of treasure being sorted. Everything from tools, kitchenware, chairs, computers, shelves, frames, costumes, stage props & fixtures, party décor, furnishings, darkroom equipment and more have been stacked, sorted and tagged for this huge rummage sale. And the best part of it all? All the proceeds help to benefit the Center’s Scholarship Fund.

I actually have to stop myself from personally collecting half the items in storage in the art barn. After walking through, I found at least two dozen things I wanted to take home with me. Now, I’m not a pack-rat, I can just imagine a million ways to recycle art and props. I’ve already framed one of my paintings and hung it in my office. But I’ll stop there. (Unless you have a truck and storage space for me!) There's just too many golden little 'finds' to search through and I have a lot of work to do...

The wealth of the event, however, can be found in the Special Exhibition Gallery, where we hung Marilyn Sunderman’s works. There are over 100 pieces both very large and small of her fabulous work. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Princess Al Sabah of Kuwait, former California Governor, Edmund Brown and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayid all have her work in their collections and so can you! So if you have time, stop down and check out the treasures. It’s all happening at Sedona Arts Center, 15 Art Barn Road (North end of Uptown):

Fri. July 29th 7 - 11am
Sat. July 30th 8 am - 1 pm

Remember: grow; learn; conserve; preserve; create; question; educate; change; and free your mind.
