Mountain Trails Galleries opens a new exhibition of painting and sculpture that pays tribute to the Native culture on First Friday, August 3, with receptions in both Tlaquepaque galleries from 5-8 p.m.

Celebrating Native Culture features Navajo/Ute sculptor Oreland C. Joe and Ojibwe painter John Potter who bring inspiration to their friends and collectors with new artwork for First Friday's Gallery Art Walk.

Oreland Joe's chiseled and sanded Colorado marble Night Star (22"h x 8.5"w x 7"d) represents a young Hopi woman, with her hair worn in the traditional butterfly whorl on each side of her head, standing tall with elegance and grace in her draped blanket.

John Potter pays tribute tonature in his oil on canvas painting Path to Enlightenment (18' x 24"). John reveals his inspiration as he quotes Oglala Sioux Luther Standing Bear, "Out of the Indian approach to life there came a great freedom - an intense and absorbing love for Nature, a respect for Life; (and an) enriching faith in a Supreme Power...".

Also inspiring are paintings honoring Native culture by Lisa Danielle, Vicki Catapano, Bonnie Conrad, Ty Barhaug, George Molnar, Marcia Molnar, Stephen Lang, Larry Riley, Gene Speck, and Wei Tai, as well as sculpture by Vic Payne, Dustin Payne, Susan Kliewer, and Michael Trcic. All these award winning artists pay tribute to Native people who have inspired them in some way.

Stop by and enjoy libations and lively conversation in both galleries for the opening reception on Friday, August 3, from 5-8 pm: Suite A-201 upstairs by the creek and Suite B-122 downstairs across from the restaurant Rene at Tlaquepaque, 336 SR179, Suite A-201 & B-122, Sedona. (800) 527-6556 (928) 282-3225,
