As featured in the arts and culture publication KudosAZ, Mountain Trails Gallery will present more than 40 of their inspiring artists working in a variety of mediums, styles, and subjects as each artist offers their talents and unique ways of expressing in a compelling lineup of work. The exhibition opens on First Friday, June 2nd with a reception from 4-7pm at their location in the Village of Tlaquepaque in Sedona and continues throughout the month of June.
Featured as a part of the show is the masterful portrait painter Jerry Salinas with remarkable oil on canvas works that form a perfect balance between traditional and contemporary styles. Creating his own approach of abstracted realism moving from hard edges to soft, and back again from lost edges to found edges, this artist has created his own rhythm and intriguing way of painting. A member of the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts in Chicago, Jerry Salinas now teaches at the Scottsdale Artists’ School and has been honored with teaching at the Florence Studio in Florence, Italy.
