Friday, April 5, 5-8 p.m., visiting acclaimed artists Jerry Gorman and Lucius Upshaw will be at Goldenstein Gallery's opening reception for "100th 1st Friday" during the SGA gallery tour. These artists have inspired and captivated collectors from around the globe with their vibrant work.

Considered to be one of the quintessential landscape artists of the Southwest, Jerry Gorman's vibrant colors and impressionistic style compels collectors from across the globe. 

His paintings have shown in international exhibitions in France, Mexico, and throughout the United States. Recipient of several awards in national and international shows, Gorman is in the permanent art collection of the International Space Hall of Fame, the Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada and the Museum of Nuclear History and Science in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Two Gorman murals are in the collection of the United States Government and his paintings are in private collections throughout the world.

Sculptor Lucius Upshaw has been creating works of lasting beauty for over 40 years. Stunning versatility and originality emanate from his work.  His life like human and animal bronze sculptures are contemporary, smooth, and expressive. 

Some evoke a sense of happiness and cheer while others portray strength and pure beauty of form.  His large scale copper clad reliefs and sculpture in the round have led to impressive commissions such as his Spiraling River copper fountain created for the City of Redding.

Upshaw has shown his work extensively throughout the United States.  His work is in corporate and private collectors.

April 5th marks Goldenstein Gallery's celebration of their time as a member of the Sedona Gallery Association. The gallery joined the SGA close to the time they moved to their uptown location.

"One hundred 1st Fridays! It's amazing to think of it," says Linda Goldenstein, "We have many good times and memories to celebrate at Goldenstein Gallery and appreciate the support of every client and artist, each of which we hold as dear friends today."

Over the years, the gallery has added cultural layers to the 1st Friday by hosting talks by artists Mary Fisher, Tony Curtis, Beatrice Welles, Alok, Sherab Khandro, Lynette Jennings and Jim Romberg. 

Scores of musicians have performed live in the gallery, among them are Chamber Music Sedona, Sedona Blue Grass Festival, Sedona Jazz Festival, Jesse and Jack Reeves, Stonewall Band and local favorites Frost & Frost who will be performing at April's 1st Friday in Uptown.

The gallery has been blessed with Apache Pollen Blessings at their annual Cowboys and Indians Show held every October and a Tibetan Buddhist sand mandala during their Sacred Arts show.

The public is invited to meet many of the Gallery's local artists at the opening night reception for "100th First Friday" on Friday, April 5, from 5-8 p.m. during the Sedona Gallery Association's 1st Friday Gallery Tour. There will be live music with local favorites Frost and Frist and a delicious wine tasting.

Goldenstein Gallery is located at 390 N. State Route 89A in uptown Sedona and is open daily. Parking is available behind the gallery. Visit to sign up for their informative E-zine released monthly or call 928-204-1765 for additional information.
