Sedona’s 1st Friday Evening in the Galleries Exhibits

Rowe Fine Art Gallery
Freedom of Expression
First Friday Reception 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
July 7th, 2017
As our country celebrates its 241st birthday in July, Rowe Fine Art Gallery salutes one of our most cherished freedoms on July 7 with a new show, Freedom of Expression. Step into the gallery for a patriotic celebration featuring local artists and new artworks. And while you’re marveling at the art, keep in mind your personal freedom of expression. Take home a painting, sculpture or piece of jewelry that honors your own uniqueness, self-expression and exquisite taste. Sedona artist Jen Farnsworth will be at the show, and she’s passionate about expressing herself through her vibrant wildlife and landscape paintings. “I express my emotions through color,” says Jen, who is originally from northern Maine. “Whether I’m capturing the feeling of a landscape or the spirit of an animal, I do so by using bold, bright colors. It brings me great joy.” For more information please visit Rowe Fine Art Gallery!

Turquoise Tortoise Gallery
“Sharon Weiser: Cactus Flower”
First Friday Reception 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
July 7th, 2017
Clearly, the time Sharon Weiser spent in Arizona left its mark artistically as she continues to create her joyfully close-up cactus compositions. Painting in either oils or acrylics, Weiser works primarily from her own photos – cropping, replacing, repositioning or enlarging forms to expertly compose her dynamic light-filled canvases. It is bold colors, a remarkable attention to detail and a singular sense of design that makes the paintings of Sharon Weiser stand apart. Her artwork also continues to evolve as her curiosity compels her to keep experimenting with different color palettes, subjects and ideas. For more information please visit the Turquoise Tortoise Gallery.
