TURQUOISE TORTOISE GALLERY CELEBRATES
1st Friday Gallery Tour
"Children of Beauty: The Art of Sharon Brening"
Artist Reception Friday, September 5, 2014, 5-8 PM
Turquoise Tortoise Gallery is pleased to welcome the gifted artist Sharon Brening to Sedona for a special artist reception to kick off its exciting Autumn Season. In 2011 Brening became the first woman to win the prestigious gold medal award for oil painting at the Annual Western Artists of America Show and Sale in Texas, an honor her long-time collectors could have predicted given the skill she brings to her portraits of Native American children. Brening journeys repeatedly to Navajo land, Hopi and pueblos in New Mexico where she has formed lasting friendships with her subjects’ families. Each portrait sold helps compensate the family as well. Exhibition through September 14th.
