Believing that art is living breathing encounter, Goldenstein Gallery has consistently championed opportunities to create a life enhancing experience for the public. From the creation of Tibetan Sand Mandalas in the gallery to satellite exhibits for the public citywide they have strived to involve people in interactive ways…bringing artist and collector together. One profound life enhancing experience is their ever-expanding Artist in Residence program.
Since August of 2015 they have worked in partnership with L’Auberge De Sedona expanding the gallery’s Artist in Residence program onsite at the renowned resort allowing hotel guests to view local artwork and to watch the artists at work and learn more about their art. The types of artwork being created range from clay and wax sculpting for bronze casting to multi-media and pointillist painting. Recently they hosted the creation of a sacred Tibetan Sand Mandala at the acclaimed resort.
Visitors can interact with the artists, ask questions about their work or preferred art medium, learn about art galleries in Sedona, or ask about other local art programs. In the past year over 100 artists have participated in the acclaimed program.
Linda Goldenstein has also curated a special exhibit “Large Scale in the Lodge at L’Auberge” showcasing the work of a diverse group of artists in a variety mediums and styles. Examples of artist’s work are also placed throughout the resort both inside and out.
Although Linda and the Gallery have worked with hundreds of artists including respected museums & community exhibitions, the award winning gallery now focuses on 50 fine local and regional artists. They have been named Best Gallery in Sedona for 9 years running and recently USA Today’s 10 Best named them the number 1 place to shop in Sedona. Goldenstein Gallery’s address is 150 State Route 179, at the corner of SR179 and 89A and is open daily.
