Indulge in the wonders and imaginative works created for this month's exhibition at Sedona Arts Center. Join them First Friday, Aug. 3, from 5 to 8 p.m. for the opening reception of "Canyon Inspirations." Experience the beauty of artists Caroline Linscott, Jerry Pond, Wade Mongold, Margo Mitchell and Rita Elaine Elkins at this Fine Art Gallery event in Uptown Sedona.

Come see featured artist Rita Elaine Elkins (pastel), who has spent 20 years seriously exploring her art in Maryland, England, the Pacific Northwest and the Southwest. Her love of color, texture and landscape surpasses, only marginally, her interest in people and the challenge of new subjects and media. You can also treat yourself to the personal style of Margo Mitchell (oil), who was greatly influenced by the art she admires in museums and galleries in Europe and America. The works of early American Impressionists such as Willard Metcalf continue to inspire her, as well as the work of the great Southwest artist James Reynolds.

Also featured this month is Jerry Pond (oil), Caroline Linscott (watercolor) and Wade Mongold (ceramics). Jerry studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and taught etching at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts in Chicago. After moving to Cottonwood in 1999, he took a workshop with Scott Jennings where his passion for plein air was ignited. Then there's Caroline, who describes her art journey as like being on an escalator always taking you to the next level, growing and learning to see. Caroline started painting with watercolors when she took a class with Adele Earnshaw at Sedona Arts Center over twenty years ago. Watercolor painting has led her to many places she would not have otherwise been able to go. Finally, Wade Mongold describes his clay work as therapy. It requires all his attention and alleviates the stresses of life. Through his care and inspiration, you will find masterful treasures.

Also at the Arts Center in our Special Exhibition Gallery is the much-anticipated Members' Summer Co-Op Exhibition through Aug. 22. This much anticipated event's Opening Reception will also be held on First Friday Aug. 3, from 5 to 8 p.m. You'll find a variety of styles and mediums from exquisite jewelry, fine art paintings, sculptures, ceramics and more. Come mingle with the artists on this exciting evening.
