Mary Lois Brown oil paintings on exhibit at City Hall

Sedona artist Mary Lois Brown oil painting exhibition is at Sedona City Hall through the end of March 2020. After a year of studies with Patricia Cochran in the 1970s, Brown learned the approach of the Old Masters which opened an exciting new world of light and color that she pursues within her own work to this day.

Sedona AZWinsome oil paintings by Mary Lois Brown are on viewing display at Sedona’s City Hall through the end of April. The public is invited to meet Brown at a reception on Thursday, March 5, 2020, from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers.

For twenty years, Brown lived at the Grand Canyon where she had time to explore and observe the beauty of the canyon from river to rim and found the landscape above all to be her inspiration. This experience is still reflected in her paintings today, and the Grand Canyon is still her favorite subject to paint.

In 2000, Brown moved to the White Mountains near Show Low, Arizona, and started a new painting career exploring the west with brush and canvas in hand. Her work features beautiful landscapes and wildlife.

While living in Show Low, a dream to paint the depths of the Grand Canyon was fulfilled after a 2006 Grand Canyon river trip. About a year later, Brown was invited to the Sedona Art Center in Uptown Sedona to exhibit her work celebrating rivers. After her painting sold, Brown was invited to be a juried member and consistently sold art through the Sedona Art Center (SAC). Since relocating to Sedona in 2008, Mary Lois continues to paint and take classes with Scott Jennings and other SAC instructors while exhibiting her work at shows and the SAC Fine Art Gallery.

“I have admired Mary Lois’ work for quite some time. When I saw her painting of cows on a cover of VegFest magazine and then looked up her work online, I knew I had to track her down and invite her to exhibit at City Hall. I hope the public will take time to see this wonderful exhibit,” said city of Sedona Arts and Culture Coordinator Nancy Lattanzi.

The City Hall Art Rotation exhibits are located in the Council Chambers and the Vultee Conference Room gallery at City Hall, 102 Roadrunner Drive, Sedona, Arizona. To make an appointment for best viewing time, contact Nancy Lattanzi at 928-203-5078 or email nlattanzi@sedonaaz.gov.

    The Art Exhibits are wonderful at City Hall, and going to reception is well worth it. Dropping by to see the talent in the courtyard and on the walls in the chamber area is easy. Some of Sedona’s best regional artists are represented. Much of the art is for sale and is superior, thoughtful, and represents many artists that live here full time many not seen in local galleries. It is an honor to have the opportunity to hang in this space. Thank you to Nancy Lattanzi and Sandy Moriarty and council for making this an on-going service to Sedona’s creative community. See you there.

    I have attended a few of those artist’s events at city hall and I have always been amazing at the beauty! Not only do we have the amazing natural beauty out in the red rocks but are treated to artist beauty right in our own city hall, rather cool I must say.
