The Collective Sedona is proud to announce that a new art gallery has opened by visionary artist, Eugenia Ortiz. The Eugenia Ortiz Art gallery is located on the first floor, off the center courtyard, and directly behind the Magic Mandala Kaleidoscope Gallery.
Eugenia, a Kansas City resident and Los Angeles artist, was lured by Sedona’s rich creative culture. She is joined by her assistant, Chester White, who will share in her responsibilities managing the Gallery. Eugenia plans to celebrate with a grand opening party on September 9th. In the meantime, visitors can tour the beautiful gallery filled with mixed media paintings and 3D glasses (for enhanced viewing).
Eugenia enjoys exploring emotions and life experiences using color and texture in her sculptures and mixed media paintings. She creates some of her works using silk, cotton, paper, eggshells and other natural fibers. “My art engages the individual with colors, patterns, and interplay between the form and formless,” says Eugenia. “As both the creator and conduit for the energy flowing through the artwork, the end result resonates at an emotional, mental and spiritual level.” Stay tuned for more details on the grand opening celebration.
