SEDONA ART

Sedona’s Art Colony

On April 28, 1961, Sedona’s history as a vibrant art colony began when the pillar of the modern-art world, Nassan Gobran (the great Egyptian-American sculptor) and Max Ernst (the world-famous surrealist and one of the originators of the modern collage) opened the Sedona Arts Center. On that day, “a center for the arts” debuted as “an artist’s haven” in the old Jordan apple-packing barn. The site was picked (yes, that is an intentional pun) because of access to Sedona’s incredible light and resplendent red rocks. Since then, Sedona has become a haven for artists, painters, fabric artists, photographers, sculptors, glass/wood/metal artists, jewelry designers, ceramic artists, and many more.

Since 1990, the Sedona Arts Festival has welcomed artists from around the world to share their art. Each year, dozens of art festivals are held in Sedona and Oak Creek to allow local artisans to sell their arts and crafts.

In addition, many galleries create innovative displays which often change with the season. While the following is not a complete list of galleries in Sedona, this list gives you an idea of what to expect when you are exploring the art colony that is Sedona.
