By Robert Cherry, a hand-turned pine vessel measuring 14”h x 14”w x 14”d, is work by one of three artists attending Lanning Gallery’s “1st Friday” reception on June 1.

Lanning Gallery offers an added bonus during Sedona's "1st Friday Gallery Tour" from 5-8 p.m. on June 1: Three artists will be in attendance as the exhibition "3 Men: Wood, Bronze & Wire" opens.

All three men create art objects; the work of all three is uniquely creative; and each has a winning personality that promises to make for a terrific evening.

\Robert Cherry, Chris Deverill and Phil Lichtenhan are the artists and with all three on hand one-on-one time with a favorite will be easy - if you can choose a favorite!

Robert Cherry hand-turns and hollows vessels of pine, finished so finely as to look like glass. He uses only old pine, often rich with fissures he can fill with minute turquoise chips to create masterful inlays before the final coats of finish - a finish so fine as to elevate the stature of each vessel, whether original wood tones with inlays or vessels transformed into rich reds.

Chris Deverill creates bronze animal sculptures with a distinctive wit in their elongated forms, capturing with precision the nature of each animal he creates.

Whether of his usual size range, that can easily nestle on a tabletop or shelf or a spot on the floor, or pieces reaching heights over seven feet tall, Deverill's animals absolutely beguile.

Deverill is a member of the National Sculpture Society and the International Sculpture Center. His style and workmanship is beyond measure.

Phil Lichtenhan is an accomplished artist of wide-ranging talents who uses myriad types of found wire to fashion birds' nests of strikingly authentic design.

Each metal's natural aged patina stands in striking contrast to his delicate high-fired ceramic eggs affixed firmly in every nest. Lichtenhan reclaims wire from roadsides, railroads, and alleyways, the city and the desert.

His nests range from small to large or tall, from uniform to motley in shape. His art can be found throughout the United States in both public and private collections.

Exhibition is through June 10. "Like" us on Facebook and see many photos of all three artists' work.
