Georgia Michalicek has been creating landscape photographs that embrace the four elements of earth, air, water, and fire since moving to Northern Arizona 16 years ago.

On Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15, from 1 to 3 p.m. Sedona photographer Georgia Michalicek will be at Sedona Treasures at Hillside Sedona Shops presenting her fine art photography.

Georgia is the featured artist of the month at Sedona Treasures, a gallery dedicated to local artists. She will be presenting an assortment of landscape photography.

Georgia Michalicek has been creating landscape photographs that embrace the four elements of earth, air, water, and fire since moving to Northern Arizona 16 years ago, but has only begun to share these beautiful images of sacred places more seriously with the people who live here and visit here in the past couple years. Her recent awards and recognition by arts organizations, and the public, are a testimony to how effectively her photographs communicate the feelings of "coming home" that rise up within each one of us as they are viewed.

Michalicek was recently named one of the Best Artists of Sedona 2012 by the Sedona Area Guild of Artists (SAGA) Open Exhibition juror, Jerry Smith, Curator of American and Western Art at the Phoenix Art Museum. Only 26 artists in Sedona can claim this honor. Her photograph titled, Cathedral Pools, was displayed in March with works of art of the highest quality including painting, photography, carving, wood carving, clay, sculpture, and textile/fiber art. Michalicek says, "The photograph that was taken of Cathedral Rock is like no other. It shows that the reflection we see is more important at times than the physical reality."

She also won the People's Choice Award at the Sedona Visual Artists' Coalition (SVAC) 11th annual Fall Exhibition for her photograph titled, The Spaces In Between, that invites you to enter the world of a sycamore tree on Dry Beaver Creek with your heart wide open. "It's a meditative piece," says Michalicek, "the viewer can easily be transported by this photograph, finding peace and quiet in the spaces in between their own thoughts."

In addition, Michalicek was selected as a featured artist by the Herberger Theater Center, and displayed works from Antelope Canyon, West Fork in Oak Creek Canyon, and the Sedona Red Rock Country at the 2011 Phoenix Festival of the Arts. Her fine art photographs of these sacred Arizona landscapes fit perfectly with their theme: Falling Into the Arts.

Although Michalicek says her photographic skills came to her naturally due to her love for the beauty of nature and the joy received when traveling and being outdoors, she does have an extensive background working as a photographer, graphic artist, newspaper publisher and editor, and in the digital arts for corporations, higher education, and health care clients. Most recently, she has worked at Northern Arizona University in the fields of Information Technology and Distance Education, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2005.

Her photographs taken in the Southwest and on the Big Island of Hawaii have been published in online video workshops, and in a book used for self-healing. She is represented by the Sedona Treasures art gallery in Hillside Sedona, and you can also see her art displayed through the end of 2012 as part of the SVAC Open Studios Tour by calling 928-699-3316.

Sedona Treasures is located at 671 State Route 179 at the Hillside shops across from Javelina Cantina Restaurant. Beverages and snacks will be served during both receptions on Saturday and Sunday.
