Acclaimed artist Patricia A. Griffin will be visiting during the opening weekend of Goldenstein Gallery's Impressionist-Expressionist.
An opportunity for collectors to meet this celebrated artist, this is the first time she has been in Sedona. A stunning impressionist, Griffin's award winning work has received international acclaim.
Griffin's vibrant yet soft oil paintings capture the essence of her subjects, both wild and domestic animals. She works to extract their connectivity to the human world and share it with the viewer, allowing the viewer to create a personal story or journey.
Griffin's extraordinary work has been in numerous museum shows including the Great Plains Art Museum and International Museum of Art in El Paso, Texas in 2014.
Griffin is part of a three-month series at Goldenstein Gallery featuring different art modalities. Adele Seronde, Allen Powell and Marilyn Bos are also featured in this month's exhibit: Impressionist-Expressionist.
Adele Seronde's works are of natural landscapes and the gardens she loves and believes can change the world as we live in harmony with nature. To her, the garden is a metaphor for healing, a source to love and nurture the Earth. She is a founder of Gardens for Humanity.
Concurrent with Impressionist-Expressionist, Goldenstein Gallery and Sedona Arts Center will honor this longtime resident of Sedona, environmental activist, and mentor in a month-long retrospective exhibition spanning the many phases of her career -- landscapes, portraits, gardens and flowers.

Marilyn Bos uses a mix of styles and techniques that represent decades of experience. Her use of layers, often 100 or more on a single painting, allows light and shadow to create the essence of what happens with the Red Rocks. Each painting changes as the light reaches the various layers and the sculpted texture capturing the canyons and abstractions of nature.
Acrylic and oil painter Allen Powell has a diverse body of work ranging from abstract impressionism to expressive landscapes that make the viewer feel they are standing in the wilderness.
The public is invited to meet these engaging artists and other local artists at the opening reception for Impressionist-Expressionist on Friday, March 6th from 5-8 p.m. and on Saturday from 2-4 p.m.
Goldenstein Gallery is open daily and located at 70 Dry Creek Road. Visit www.GoldensteinArt.com or call 928-204-1765 for information.
