First Friday, Sept. 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. will be an eventful evening at Sedona Arts Center.

Each building, classroom and gallery will have a different event, sale, demonstration and food.

The Arts Center is hosting receptions for three exhibits: "Autumn Equinox" in the members Fine Art Gallery, the "Open Members Exhibit" in the Special Exhibitions Gallery and the "Student Ceramics Sale" in the Ceramics studio.

"Autumn Equinox" features the work of Lydia Dillon-Sutton (Batik), Susan Pitcairn (Painting), Jeffery Perkins (Ceramics), Mary Flaisig (Fibers) and Judy Classen (Jewelry).

Additionally the North Studio, Ceramics Studio and Theatre classrooms will have ongoing faculty presentations of artwork, demonstration and artist/instructors available for questions and discussion.

The North Studio will feature ongoing painting classes available from Gretchen Lopez. Note: The South Studio will be the home for a special workshop with poet Clinton Frakes from 2:30 to 4 p.m. moving into the Poets Corner event 4-5 p.m.

Each of the classrooms will also feature a different food selection - vegetables, fruit, dessert, and cheese. It is a closely guarded secret which room will have the desserts so customers are advised to make a quick tour right at 5 p.m. to be assured of getting the most dessert they can.

Wine will also be served throughout the facility with the classrooms featuring red wine and the galleries white wine.

After sampling as much food and wine as they can visitors are invited to now explore the Arts Center at a more leisurely pace as they browse through a wide variety of artwork, workshops and classes.

Five featured artists will also be on display in the Main Gallery. More than 150 works are expected in the Open Members Exhibition and the Ceramics area will host the work of at least six featured students with an additional 'pottery clearance sale' of ceramic pottery donated to the department.
