The Big Gay Art Show

The Big Gay Art Show — a juried art show that exhibits and sells artwork in support of the LGBTQ+ community and allies — showing in the Special Exhibitions Gallery from December 7 to 23, 2022.

This much anticipated and well attended exhibition is open to all artists in any medium and of any level. In 2012, the Big Gay Art Show was conceptualized by a small group – some connected to SAC and others in the Sedona Pride organization. The event began as an effort to offer the LGBTQ+ community a voice in the local art scene. Since that first show, Sedona Arts Center has welcomed hundreds of emerging and professional artists to Sedona to share their work. The event provides a positive venue to for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies to show their work. In the past, Sedona Arts Center hosted and promoted this event, but has now taken on the special event at the request of Sedona Pride.

“We are incredibly excited about the Big Gay Art Show.  This is first BGAS since the pandemic and since we took over the event from Sedona Pride.  Work in the show is coming from all over the US – and I believe this is going to be a very impactful and stunning exhibit.  It is definitely not to be missed!” – Julie Richard, CEO, Sedona Arts Center.
