Featuring Bill Belvin, April Bower, Art Hiscox, Joanne Hiscox, Neil Kennedy, and Christie Palmer
The Sedona Arts Center represents over 100 professional local and regional artists. The Fine Art Gallery on campus is a dynamic, ever-changing display of local talent in all dimensions and forms. Part of that dynamic is the bi-monthly featured artists program.
Bill is a Sedona based fine arts photographer specializing in creating richly detailed images of the American Southwest wilderness. He loves capturing the patterns and symmetries present in sandstone and sharing the results with others.
Her Jewelry is contemporary, extremely wearable, one of a kind, and limited editions. Bower now works mostly in silver, bi-metals and copper, using color & texture as the main ingredients.
“My architectural art combines man-made materials with nature’s own art (marble, granite, slate, fossils). My use of color, texture and resin compels viewers to actually touch the surface of my pieces. I frequently use river stone, granite, marble, copper, shell, tree bark, semi-precious stones and fossils in combination with man-made materials to create functional art pieces that convey nature’s peacefulness. Many of my pieces depict rivers, streams, landscape, birds and bright colors.”
“I love to create architectural art that blends nature with style, incorporating man-made mediums with nature’s own art. My tables startle the viewer by juxtaposing natural elements (copper, semi-precious stones and fossils) with man-made materials, compelling the viewer to actually touch the surface (bringing in another sense besides sight). My goal is to create sculptural art pieces that are new and different, constantly changing in design and material composition. My sculptural fused glass works showcase my strongest point: that I’m a “no-fear artist”. Present me with a new challenge and I’m on board instantly.”
His ceramic pieces range from functional thrown forms to coil and slab-built figurative sculptures. His current clay pieces meld thrown forms, slabs, altering, incising and sculpting. The glazes on the functional pieces, fired in an electric kiln, have been developed to give the surface the depth and beauty traditionally associated with reduction firing. Neil’s pieces meld a spiritual simplicity with a figurative rhythm and physical energy
Neither truly realistic, surreal or abstract, Palmer’s paintings are graced with enigmatic shapes, a fusion of drama and serenity, and an intuitively expert use of color. Whether an intimate study of a small object or the vastness of a landscape, her work reflects her singular observation of the world and encourages the viewer’s participation in a closer engagement with her subject.
We look forward to seeing you at the Sedona Arts Center’s Fine Art Gallery. We are now open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 am to 5pm.
