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. Our March and April Featured Artist Exhibition will feature some of our long-time and finest artists.
“What catches my eye is the effect light has on form in unique situations whether fleeting, spilling over, striking, etc. I challenge myself in capturing its dramatic and/or subtle effects. I strive for confident enthusiastic brushwork, the maximizing of color’s value and intensity range and a fresh painterly approach, the result appearing effortless.”
From thrown clay to form large, thin-walled vessels to hand built figures, Jeff has been a master of ceramics for most of his life. Brought to Arizona at a very young age Jeff became associated with the Verde Valley School where he has taught for over 30 years. Nassan Gobran, founder of the Sedona Arts Center, was an early instructor, encouraging Jeff to pursue art in a clay form. Influenced by ancient and primitive art, the pieces emerge from imagination, often with animal & bird influences. The work is spontaneous and intuitive, letting the torn clay and textured slabs become the figure. Letting the thrown work develop into large cylinder forms over many hours.
Joan Roberts’ work in jewelry design has become a passion as she continually seeks new ways to create distinctive art pieces. Joan enjoys the active and ongoing search for interesting materials and techniques that will keep each of her designs unique and one of a kind. Joan’s work in metal clay of silver, gold and bronze reflect her organic design style reflecting the natural beauty surrounding us.
Vince Fazio is the Executive Director of the Sedona Arts Center and long time director of the School of the Arts at the center. Vince is a graduate of the University of Kansas, Lawrence where he received his MFA with a concentration in painting. He has studied art in Italy, at the Arts Students League of New York and at various Colleges and Universities. He has taught art in many settings and venues from University to Community College and Arts Centers. Vince currently teaches a Drawing Crash Course and an occasional specialized workshop at the Sedona Arts Center.
Since moving to Sedona in 1995 Mary Flaisig’s primary focus has been the exploration of woven sculptural forms. The sculptures are on branches which Mary finds in the Sedona area. Flaisig weaves on a structure of rattan that she builds on branches which are often Manzanita wood. For the weft in her weaving Flaisig uses yarns in wool, mohair, silk, rayon, and other unique fibers.
