All guests are welcome to attend free of charge and enjoy the Sedona Trolley, which does continuous loops to all locations. Some of April's highlights include: 

ALT Gallery presents "The Art of the Landscape".  A special show for May will feature a 200 year range of exceptional landscape painting, from 19th Century English realist watercolor to 1950's modern abstract.  Also included are French Barbizon School oils, early California impressionists, and work of the contemporary West.  

Andrea Smith Gallery features Gala Kraftsow, an artistic Renaissance painter, sculptor, and mosaic master will be unveiling her latest collection of mosaics during First Friday in May.  Kraftsow's Mosaic Mural collection captures the essence of her travels and experiences in glass, gems, beads, stone, shells, and any other object that inspires imagination and beauty.

AZADI Fine Rugs kicks off their newest show "Milton Glaser: An Exploration of Pattern Making and Color Effects in Textiles." AZADI Fine Rugs is honored to be able to bring these exquisite pieces to Sedona; recently they were featured in a show at the renowned Santa Monica Museum of Modern Art. Live music with Paolo Scardina.

Gallery of Modern Masters features Robert Ichter who is known internationally for his brilliantly colored, stylized landscapes in pastel on suede. There will be an artist presentation 6:30 and an art auction to benefit the Sedona International Film Festival. The reception hosted by Sound Bites Grille.

Garland's Collector's Room will be featuring the new work of Gregory Hull. The public is invited to meet the artists during the SGA Gallery Tour.

Goldenstein Gallery kicks off "The Inside Outside Show" at their uptown location. Painters Patricia Griffin and Rafe Terry, and Cheston Trammel and Dwayne Cranford are among the artists represented in this dazzling show. Live music with local favorites Frost and Frost and refreshing beverages will be served.

James Ratliff Gallery invites you to enjoy the latest paintings of Lelija Roy. Comments Ms. Roy, "I combine an impressionist painting style with glazing and various resist techniques defining space with layers of textures and calligraphic brush strokes. My art is essentially energy translated into paint." Roy will present a short talk at 6 p.m.

JN Muir Sculpture Studio/Gallery showcases "Colonel Travis-The Line," the life-sized sculpture that is a feature in the collection of the newly opened George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Texas.

Kuivato Glass Gallery will be featuring the incredible work of Mary Mullaney throughout the month of May.  Mary creates stunning one-of-a-kind handblown & carved vessels.  Each piece has amazing detail, light, & texture. 

Lanning Gallery features "Gerald Moore: Re-creation" and welcomes the artist to town to meet collectors and visitors. Moore's landscape paintings are often, at first glance, mistaken for pointillism; but, upon inspection his award-winning work reveals many tiny brush strokes. For Moore, each painting bears out his belief that nature's beauty most often is not simple.

Lark Art presents "From the Realm of the Fantastic ... The Fiber Art Characters of Susan Barmore."  From her Hiking Fox to her Derby Day Crows and Bluebirds of Happiness, Susan brings humor and attitude to her original creations.  Her imaginative designs combined with her artistic executions certainly make her art delightfully collectible.  

Mountain Trails Galleries is honored to present master impressionistic painter Betty Carr in a one-person exhibition of her latest work: Betty Carr: The Movement of Light - Still Lifes and Landscapes from the West. This show will emphasize the dramatic movement of light as it sweeps across her still life and landscape paintings.

Passion For Place Gallery celebrates the May release of Greg Lawson's new tourist oriented photography book:  Sedona - The Nature of the Place.   The title has been produced in the primary languages of North America: English, French and Spanish and further translated into Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, and Korean to accommodate Sedona's international visitors.

Rowe Fine Art Gallery celebrates the transformation of sculpture from clay to bronze during "Metal"morphosis: The Beauty of Bronze. Renowned sculptor and gallery owner Ken Rowe will unveil two new sculptures and talk about the yearlong evolution of each piece. Wine and appetizers will be served.

Sedona Arts Center invites you to experience, "Unstructured." In this month's exhibition, Joanne Hiscox, Dennis Ott, Christie Palmer, Pat Stacy and Joan Roberts have taken on the challenge to produce art unlike anything they have done before. These amazing artists successfully incorporated structure within unstructured art using color, texture, materials and shapes outside their usual styles.

Turquoise Tortoise Gallery features "Tony Abeyta: A Solo Exhibition" and welcomes the famed artist back to Sedona to meet 1st Friday visitors. With many new mixed media paintings to be unveiled, this new exhibition comes weeks before the prestigious Institute of American Indian Arts pays tribute to Abeyta with an honorary doctorate degree.
