Since last fall, Pueblo Sedona Gallery has added three talented local artists to their fold and owner's Gerry Quotskuyva and Debbi Menig are excited to introduce them to their local and out of town collectors as well as to Sedona's seasonal visitors.

P. Ronald Schneider's highly detailed Puebloan ruin sculptures have recently garnered much interest and appreciation from the gallery's clientele. Ron's love of Southwest architecture - particularly that which is aged, weathered or in disrepair - was realized after relocating to Arizona in 1973. He builds his miniature ruins around and within pieces of weathered wood found locally and designs his pieces to hang on the wall or rest on a table. They feature the doorways, windows and brick like construction typical of the cliff dwellings found in the Four Corners region. Many are replicas of actual locations discovered in his travels and readings.

Fiber artist Mary Flaisig says she uses the play of light on the varied surfaces, colors and textures of a fiber piece to create beauty. She earned her BA from San Diego State University, worked as a fiber artist in Southern California in tapestry and basketry for over 20 years, and relocated to Sedona in 1995. Her distinctive sculptures are based on wooden branches she finds locally. She then weaves on a flowing structure she builds around the branch out of rattan, using both traditional wool and contemporary man-made fibers. Her rich, colorful, textural wall pieces are widely collected and she has also designed numerous custom pieces.

The most recent addition to the gallery is photographer Mitchel Heider who is clearly inspired and exhilarated by Sedona's beautiful landscapes. He enjoys locating scenes that others may not notice and strives at being in the moment, observing earth's beauty, and sharing that experience with the viewer. His expressive metallic backed photographs appear illuminated from within and communicate through vivid color, movement and inspiration. Through his artwork, Mitch tries to convey the stillness in a moment, to calm our busy minds and lives, and bring us into a state of inner peace.

Pueblo Sedona Gallery represents local and regional artists in a wide variety of mediums including katsina dolls; bronze, fiber, mixed-media and stone sculptures; acrylic, mixed-media, and oil paintings; photographs; jewelry; pottery; gourd bowls; wooden wall plaques; feather fans and more.

Located in Creekside Plaza at 251 SR 179, the gallery is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Mondays.
