Csaba Martonyi with Sand Waves

Hungarian-born carver and fine art photographer, Csaba Martonyi, is the featured artist for the SAGA (Sedona Area Guild of Artists) Winter Show, Feb. 17-18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, at the Amara Resort and Spa in Uptown Sedona.

Several other SAGA Professional Artists will also present many unique pieces.

On Saturday, Feb. 18, there will also be a reception from 5 to 7 p.m., when the People's Choice award will be announced.

Visitors to the show are asked to choose their favorite piece of art in the show and enter a drawing for a prize piece of art from one of the SAGA Artists.

Also, SAGA Artists, including Csaba Martonyi, will tell the exciting and interesting stories of their art. Martonyi's fine art wood carvings represent an "Old World" attention to detail. His works contain intricate interwoven elements in relief, cut from a single piece of wood.

Each piece requires hundreds of hours to complete. Also featured will be a video presentation about his unusual sculpture by SAGA Master Madak Kadam and the ethereal paintings of SAGA Master M.L. Coleman.

Beautiful glass art by SAGA Founder Holly Stedman, mystical abstract paintings by SAGA Founder Barbara Ragalyi, whimsical sculpture by SAGA Founder Joanie Wolter, offbeat photography by SAGA Founder Barbara Vickers, award winning water colors by SAGA Founder Mary Dove, stark realism painting by SAGA Founder Daniel Hochstein, "industrial abstract" painting by SAGA Founder Jack Durrwachter and Venetian photography by SAGA Founder Jerry Buley will be shown.

This SAGA Winter Show is SAGA's first show at the Amara and runs concurrently with the SAGA Contemporary Art Show, which is continuously appearing in the lobby of The Amara.

On Marsh 29-30, SAGA will host an Open Exhibition at Amara, open to all visual artists in the Sedona area.
