Sedona offers many cultural events throughout the year. This weekend there are a number of exciting things to do and see. Sedona Gallery Association (unique monthly showcase highlighting artists, special exhibits and events) kicks off April with “First Fridays in the Galleries” from 5-8pm. Many galleries are within walking distance of El Portal Sedona Hotel, or hop the Sedona Trolley – it’s free!

This Friday Gallery of Modern Masters and Seven Canyons Country Club are hosting an artist reception to honor internationally famed artists Michael Redhawk & Marlys Mallet – “The Unisons”. “Combining over sixty years of creating artwork individually, Redhawk and Mallet have combined their talents to create a new series of work on the same canvas. What they have accomplished are unique and exciting works of art, one that neither artist could have produced alone,” with art, food, artist wine and entertainment.
