Mountain Trails Galleries in Tlaquepaque present Realism from the American West which opens with a reception on First Friday, Jan. 4, from 5-8 p.m.

The first show of the New Year features figurative paintings by Brigitte Woosley, Steven Lang, Nicholas Coleman, George Molnar, Marcia Molnar, E. Manning Crook, Vicki Catapano, Wei Tai, and Larry Riley. To complement the figurative paintings, trompe l'oeil still lifes by Western artifact collector Lisa Danielle, plein air paintings by Betty Carr and Bill Cramer, as well as bronze sculpture inspired by the history of the American West by Vic Payne, Dustin Payne, and Michael Trcic, will bring all the themes and historic moments to life.

For more than 25 years, Mountain Trails Galleries has devoted their attention to representational sculpture and paintings of the American West. All of Mountain Trails' artists are from West of the Mississippi and have a passion for American history, especially from the 1800s to the present. They aim to express the kind of realism that describes human behavior and its surroundings, and to represent figures and objects exactly as they appear in life.

And, they paint or sculpt to express the beauty and the values that are important to the working cowboy, or to the Native American who upholds tradition, and they especially focus on events and people with historical and realistic accuracy, some of which changed the course of the West.

Mountain Trails has been the home to some of the finest artists in the West and has built a reputation as a destination gallery. Come view these artists' latest works on First Friday, Jan. 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. Enjoy libations and lively conversation at both Mountain Trails Galleries in the beautiful village of Tlaquepaque, Suite A-201 upstairs by the creek and Suite B-122 in the courtyard of the Restaurant Rene.

Mountain Trails Galleries is Open daily 10 a.m.-5 p.m.. 336 SR 179, Suite A-201 & B-122, Sedona. Call 800-527-6556 or 928-282-3225 or visit
