"Doing What They Do Best"

at

Mountain Trails Gallery Sedona

 

 

Mountain Trails Gallery is proud to celebrate its heritage of exhibiting paintings, sculpture, and mixed media art by some of the most insightful and spirited artists who recognize the complex and varied history of the American West. The month of June shines a light on a group of women artists who have been ‘telling it like it is’ in their painting and sculpture, and doing so with remarkable knowledge and deep experiences for decades. From figurative storytellers, to action-packed wildlife artists, to sensitive Native American painters and sculptors, to metal artists, these women love the West as their passionate point of view adds exuberance and a wholehearted intelligence to all their work. Whether conveying their experiences in a traditional style or a more contemporary mode, it is always festive to see what these remarkable artists are presenting.

Calendar of Events 

JULY 2022

Reception: July 1, 4 - 7 pm

“The Spark of Life as Art: Sculpture & Painting”  The process of making art keeps the sculptor and painter engaged non-stop whether it is research and travel, working on techniques and process, or appearing in public for education and inspiration. Mountain Trails Gallery celebrates those artists who are tireless as they are passionate about their work. Recognizing the beauty of life as a gift, their indomitable nature is to continue to present their work to share with others. Whether it is story-telling figurative work about history, ranch life, Native American culture, wildlife from the West, or the arresting beauty of a Grand Canyon landscape, we celebrate the artists who make us notice! 

AUGUST 2022

Reception: August 5, 4 - 7 pm

“Feathers & Furry Friends” featuring avian artists who capture the nuance of feathered wildlife in their painting, sculpture, drawing, and mixed media fine art. Whether depicted in action or poised in colorful beauty, Mountain Trails Gallery’s ‘birds of a feather’ artists have a similar fascination but express their fascination in their own unique way, just as each feathered friend is unique in its own way. Also featured are the gallery’s wildlife artists who work with sculpture, painting, drawing, and mixed media.

Reception: September 2, 4 - 7 pm

“Animal Nature: Wild & Domestic”

Seeing animal behavior in a parallel way to our own way of being, a group of artists are captivated by the lessons they learn from animals, both wild and domestic. Mountain Trails celebrates those artists as it continue to be a destination gallery for remarkable wildlife sculpture, painting, drawing, and mixed media. Whether it is the large mammals from the mountains and valleys of North America or the charming companions from the ranch, animals compel us to learn lessons and are given a place of recognition and honor by these remarkable artists.
