We are open and ready to offer the very best of traditional and contemporary fine art which clearly uplifts the human spirit.”

When challenges occur, as the world has been witness to in the past months, one experiences a variety of responses to these obstacles and new demands.

Julie Williams, along with her two daughters Olivia and Josie, went into production mode and made hundreds of masks for Tlaquepaque employees and others. From fabrics collected over the years, the Williams family made these masks with a variety of subtle to bright and colorful patterns, all with the intention of offering a cheerful response to the conditions at hand.

Mountain Trails Gallery accepted the challenge and is pleased to announce a new website (www.mountaintrailssedona.com) which highlights the dynamic nature of their 50 award-winning fine artists and shows the variety of subject matter, materials, styles, and techniques all displayed in a more immediate and interactive fashion. As each of the gallery artists adapted to challenges, some of their most compelling works of art are now available on the new website.

Mountain Trails Gallery has resumed its monthly exhibitions, beginning with “Native Impressions: Ancient and Contemporary” which opens on Friday, June 5, featuring painting, sculpture, and mixed media which highlight the variety of tribes and pueblos in Native Americans from the West.

The artwork focuses on cultural objects, ceremonies, events, and powwow activities from history as well as today.

Commenting on the artists and new exhibition, Julie Williams added, “The rich history and culture of our area and the West has so many layers of depth and fascinating information. We are delighted with the remarkable works of art that reflect the wonder and mystery of our Native American cultures. Our artists continue to command our attention with new ideas and expressions as they capture the aesthetic traditions of these ancient and contemporary cultures.”
