Turquoise Tortoise Gallery in Sedona opens its annual Holiday Gift Show, this year featuring the contemporary horse sculptures of artist Al Glann. A 1st Friday reception, December 4th, from 5-8 pm, opens the new exhibition and gives visitors the opportunity to meet sculptor Al Glann.
Much like a gestural drawing wrought in three dimensions, the contemporary sculptures of Al Glann use minimal lines to capture, with astonishing accuracy, the nuance of each horse’s massive body whether standing, running, rearing up or gently bowing. Glann begins each as a sculpture in steel. For smaller works, 10” to 25” high, these steel maquettes are molded to prepare for the bronzing process to create a series of 25 bronze sculptures. Larger works remain as steel sculptures, powder coated to withstand outdoor conditions as well as indoor. This holiday season the gallery features a special 42” high bright red steel horse called “Red Classic,” a festive addition to any holiday home.
The gallery also showcases a wide variety of other holiday gift ideas for art appreciators who love the one-of-a-kind options this Native American and Southwest art gallery provide. A new Sharon Weiser cactus painting (“Desert Garden #20 that measures 24” x 36”) frames her iconic and colorful cacti, these is hues of red, with stalks of red penstemons. A wide array of colorful wood masks and figures by Gregory Lomayesva, fusion artifacts as they’ve been called, in small to large sizes, have been met with the wide acclaim of critics and collectors alike. As always, the gallery’s wide array of Native American jewelry and Southwest jewelry, in a range of price points, draws holiday shoppers, and a large selection of authentic Zuni fetishes make delightful stocking stuffers.
Extensive assortment of authentic Zuni fetishes.
Stop in to Turquoise Tortoise Gallery on 1st Friday and meet artist Al Glann, learn more about the technques and inspiration for his steel and bronze contemporary horse sculptures, and begin – or continue – the joy of holiday shopping. Through December 24.
