Sedona’s 1st Friday Evening in the Galleries Exhibits

Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village
Grin and “Bear” the Heat at Rowe Fine Art Gallery
If you’re having a difficult time “bearing” the summer heat, Rowe Fine Art Gallery has the perfect remedy. Take a break from the dog days of summer at the gallery during the Sedona Gallery Association’s 1st Friday Gallery Tour. Wildlife sculptor and gallery owner Ken Rowe will spotlight one of the newest additions to his portfolio: Wading for Mom. The bronze features two bear cubs impatiently waiting for an unseen mama bear to return with a salmon dinner. The sculpture was inspired by one of Ken’s recent trips to Alaska, and once you hear the story and see the petulant looks on the cub’s faces, you can’t help but smile. For more information on this Sedona event please visit Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village.
