high-desert-300
Forty-five years ago Turquoise Tortoise Gallery began in Glendale, Arizona as a six-foot long counter on a raised area under a gazebo inside a floral shop. For two years. The business did so well that its next home was a 1000-foot space nearby that truly allowed the gallery to grow. As a gallery of Native American art, it grew in size and reputation before relocating to Sedona, Arizona in 1981 where it has flourished, becoming a destination art gallery that anchors the heart of Sedona’s Gallery District. Years in the art world has offered the gallery unique opportunities to watch artists grow in talent and stature.

International artist Tony Abeyta, now fifty, was a teenager when he walked into Turquoise Tortoise Gallery and laid his work out on the floor for owner Peggy Lanning to see. She chose to represent him immediately, despite his youth and has watched Abeyta’s audience grow dramatically as he produces ever more complex work that continues to be strongly influenced by his Navajo heritage….. For more information please visit the Turquoise Tortoise Gallery.
