Contemporary Surrealism, November 1-30, 2023

Sedona Arts Center turns 65 this year and in honor of this milestone, we are celebrating the themes of our exhibits and events in relation to our history.  This exhibit harkens back to the roots of the Arts Center and the connection to Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning in the early 1960’s.  Surrealism is a style of art in which ideas, images and objects are combined in a strange way, showing the creative potential of the unconscious mind.  All art mediums will be accepted. Original art work only. All art mediums will be accepted: 2-d, 3-d, audio and video.
