One of the most wonderful things...

One great thing about art, is how subjective it is! Something that can be appealing to one individual, may not be to another. We are all drawn toward different colors, landscapes, textures, mediums, etc., as well as specific emotions that are stirred within us (through the interaction with the art)! And it's an entirely individual experience, too, which is pretty cool when you think about it. We can actually choose art that helps us feel a certain way--whether inspired, hopeful, happy, spiritual, energized, etc.--there's an art piece here that can help bring about that experience within each of us, and part of the fun is finding it! We're here when you're ready for 'the hunt'. ;)

Char Terry's Unique Pottery

Char Terry studied art at the University of Wisconsin with a focus on clay. She moved to Washington where she had a studio, showed in many galleries, and taught clay techniques. Now living in Cottonwood, Arizona, Char is enjoying the sun and spending much of her time focusing on pottery, which she believes in an extension of her soul. Her current body of work has been greatly influenced by the art of the Southwest, both past and present. Each piece demands 16 to 25 hours of work. Techniques used are handbuilt, wheel-thrown, and altered, and she combines these techniques with most of her pieces. Once the form is complete, she applies terra-sigillata. Carving into the terra-sigillata is what

A Gentle Reminder...

Take the time to take in the art and beauty around you (particularly if you're in the area of Sedona, which offers internationally known and renowned views)! Have a great weekend!

Necklaces, bracelets, and rings, oh my!

Jewelry is always appealing. The sight of a large selection can turn many of us into what might resemble a raccoon--attracted and pawing through all of the pretty, shiny, objects! Whatever your inclination...whether it's authentic Native American, glass, silver, etc., we've got the goods. If you adore crystals and minerals, and love to have them close to your body (where they like to be to work their magick!), we also have a wide selection of this type of jewelry! Jewelry can have all sorts of positive effects in our lives, ranging from a basic 'pick-me-up', to all sorts of profound healing effects. There are many testimonials out there of those that have found that perfect piece that hel

Spring is Here!

With the Equinox on March 20th we are officially in Spring season. Although we do not have fields of flowers around Sedona you may notice the wonderful job the City of Sedona does to ensure your slow drive through Sedona is filled with many plants adorning the sides of the road. It's also a great reason to pull into our parking lot and take a break from traffic to look at some beautiful ART. Sedona Artist Market is nestled between the West Sedona Post Office and Harkins Movie Theater stop by and peruse our 100 plus artists.

Warm the Cockles of your Heart...with Art!

It's a bit of a chilly day here in Sedona, with dark clouds threatening snow. It's a great day to focus on all that keeps us warm--from the sun, to that sunny smile from a loved one. Bright colors, flowers, hot drinks, soft blankets, and connection with others. All these and more add up to help keep the light in our lives bright. Art is a part of all of this, of course! Having that perfect art piece that inspires you every time you look at it, or that special scarf, shirt or necklace that helps you feel better the moment you put it on can make all the difference some days! So if you're nearby and the mood strikes you--c'mon in and enjoy the beautiful items that we have here (over 8,000 s

Ruth Cornell and the Archaeology Event!

Ruth Cornell, one of our wonderful artists here at the Sedona Artist Market, is a volunteer for a yearly archaeology event, which is held at the Forest Service Archaeological site known as V-V Petroglyphs. (V-V was once a homestead ranch that was built upon this prehistoric site.) This site is now open to visitors for viewing ancient petroglyphs of the Sinaguan Culture. Ruth's part in this fun activity weekend is to paint "atlatl" targets, which feature a prehistoric large animal as a target for the people to use as they experience this ancient hunting weapon. Atlatl is an ancient hunting tool which predates the bow and arrow, and it's similar to a spear. Friends of hers locate huge piece

The Importance of Slowing Down

Does it seem like life is moving too fast lately? It's a common thing, and it's important to take the time to take time for ourselves!

Fortunately, we here at the Sedona Artist Market have all of these things and more! So...breathe, relax, and revel in creativity in all of its forms!

Jan & Nelson Avery: Arizona Agate

Arizona Agate’s pendants, along with beautiful minerals from around the world, can now be found at the Sedona Artist Market. Jan Avery states, "I am a rockhound. I am blessed to live in central Arizona, just a stone's throw from the beautiful Sedona red rocks. My location allows me to travel all over the state looking for potential rocks for my cabochons. Some are from the Peloncillo Mountains in southeastern Arizona, some are from Sheep Bridge in Bloody Basin, and some are even from Apache Creek, New Mexico. "Most of the pendants I make started with a rock that I found. I cut the rock into slabs on a rock saw in my workshop. Next, I draw a shape on a slab and cut it out on a trim saw. On my

Among other things, it's perfect weather to get out there and explore the beauty that the red rocks offer! Sit on a rock, take your shoes off...breathe deep.

Meet Bob of Bob Coates Photography

Bob Coates loves photography. A friend once told him, “ I’ll bet you have more pixels swimming around in your veins than you have red and white blood cells!” Bob guesses that’s what comes from living, sleeping, eating, and breathing the photographic process. He says it’s all about being and staying creative. He 'specializes in not specializing' because he's found that each genre of photography informs the next. For example, his experimentation in creating original digital art has been working its way into his commercial images. This gives him the ability to add more depth and dimension to the images he creates. He says that can really help the images jump off of the page, whether it be in a
