Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition Meeting to Feature Gallery Owners

sedona visual artists coalitionSedona AZ (March 12, 2010) – The Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition announces that three prominent local gallery owners will be featured panelists for this month’s membership meeting. Their topic will be one of vital interest to many artists:  How to Get Your Art into A Gallery.  The public is cordially invited, and there is no charge to attend.

The event will be held at Canyon Moon Theater in the Village of Oak Creek (Oak Creek Outlet Mall, 6601 State Route 179, Suite A6, Sedona AZ 86351); note that this is a new location for the group’s meeting. The evening begins with a pot luck dinner at 6:00 PM, and the meeting and program will follow at 7:00 PM.

The three featured gallery owners are Linda Goldenstein, Gregory Wilkins, and Gregory Roth. They represent galleries with three distinctly different approaches, and thus will bring a broad range of perspectives to the panel discussion.

Ms. Goldenstein is the Founder and President of Goldenstein Gallery in uptown Sedona, now in its ninth year. Linda and her gallery have worked with numerous charity organizations such as the Verde Valley Sanctuary, and have supported several visual and performing arts organizations. She currently serves as the President of the Sedona Gallery Association, Chair of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and is on the Advisory Committee for Chamber Music Sedona. She is a corporate founding sponsor of the Verde Valley Sinfonietta.

Mr. Wilkins has successfully managed several art galleries in Sedona and has represented artists in shows across the country. In May 2008, he opened A Muse Gallery in the Hillside Sedona center, adding a new whimsical venue for art buyers. A Muse Gallery represents icons like Dr. Seuss, Tom Everhart’s “Snoopy”, and a myriad of fine hand-crafted art from local and acclaimed artists focusing on color and fun.

Mr. Roth began his career as one of Sedona’s master jewelers during the 1970’s and 1980’s, while Sedona grew as a mecca for artists. He opened his gallery in Tlaquepaque in 1973, and today his artistic endeavors have expanded into the creation of a line of exquisite signature wristwatches. In addition, The Roth Gallery offers a variety of handcrafted designer jewelry, accessories, and fine art wildlife bronzes.

The Sedona Visual Artists Coalition (SVAC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing an artist community by nurturing area artists through education, exhibitions, and exploration.
