Multi-award winning Phoenix songstress to perform at Goldenstein Gallery
Friday, Aug. 5, Goldenstein Gallery in Uptown Sedona will present a special music performance by award-winning Phoenix songstress Tina Angotti during the opening reception for "The Current" from 5-8 p.m.
Besides winning many awards, including "Best Solo Female Artist," Tina Angotti has appeared on television and radio, performed at Madison Square Garden, and recently shared the stage with Julia Fordham.
Artistically influenced by an eclectic mix of music rooted in Rock, R&B and Folk, singer/songwriter Tina Angotti is clearly her own woman. Her successful debut CD entitled "Mirror" is a melodically intricate and vocally startling reflection of the movements and moments of her own life.
"The Current" celebrates a stunning array of work from award winning Goldenstein Gallery artists who have captivated and inspired collectors from around the globe.
Their amazing talent features work that is full of color, motion, and a fresh sensibility that is fun yet sophisticated. Some of the artists highlighted are deeply rooted in tradition, while other artists flourish with new styles capturing the imaginations of today.
Among the artwork featured is Jill Anderson's. She refers to her woven canvas pieces as modern mosaic tapestries. Her work is so unusual and stunning that she was recently spotlighted as an emerging artist in Phoenix Home and Garden Magazine. Her weavings, prints and paintings reflect this desire to create balance and harmony between nature and science.
Collectors throughout the globe quickly prized Doug Adams' beautiful bells. Created entirely with reclaimed metal, each bell has it own unique tone and a distinct style that is unmatched. Adam's passion for creating unique one of a kind metal sculptures using many of the same techniques and processes he has became so familiar with in the metal industry now manifest in his artistic endeavors.
Making a sculpture out of old found objects and persuading it to succumb to the tools and the will of the artist's hands is the challenge that he has thrived on. Items that might end up in junk yards or farmer's backyards are all potential art objects in waiting.
From contemporary abstract tabletop and freestanding sculptures to his beautiful Signature Garden Bells, with their unusual and eye-catching designs, Adams' work is truly one of a kind.
Romelle Durand's gourds evoke the mystery and magic of the Southwest landscape. Inspired by ancient traditions, she deftly each gourd with the landscape around her using weavings or fossils. All of her organic and sophisticated designs are inspired by nature.
The transformation of a raw gourd into an exquisite sculpture is an involved process, beginning with cleaning, carving and painting. The search for embellishments that come from the land - rocks, fossils, feathers, and sea grass are all incorporated into the end result.
The public is invited to meet musician Tina Agnotti and many of the Gallery's local artists at the opening night reception for "The Current" Aug. 5 from 5-8 p.m. during the Sedona Gallery Association's 1st Friday Gallery Tour. There will also be a wine tasting.
Goldenstein Gallery is located at 390 N. State Route 89A in Uptown Sedona and is open daily. Parking is available behind the gallery.
