El Prado Galleries, Inc
Enjoy new ideas in a familiar setting. Antique furnishings give this gallery an Old West ambiance. A wide array of art captures emerging trends in painting, sculpture and other media. Traditional cowboy art, impressionist and contemporary paintings, ceramics and other works from talented artists across the country treat visitors to an impressive display of color and texture. The gallery is located in the Tlaquepaque arts and crafts village where you may enjoy many other fine galleries and exclusive shops.
El Prado by the Creek is the oldest fine art gallery in Sedona and is THE place to visit.
It's in the back corner of Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village on the banks of Oak Creek. When walking around Tlaquepaque, look for the wind sculptures and you'll find El Prado. What's great, besides the huge selection of fine art, is that the gallery is housed in an old home and you can see exactly what the art will look like in your own home.
The artwork is some of the best in the Southwest: paintings and sculpture from top artists. Some of my favorites are: Fredrick Stephens who was chosen as an emerging artist by Southwest Art magazine -- beautiful, emotional landscapes; John Cogan creates awesome landscapes of the Grand Canyon and Sedona; Jim Barker has a wide range of paintings and a knack for capturing moments in time. Marty Goldstein does humorous sculptures of dogs that I plan to buy soon.
Outside in the gallery's garden, wind sculptures and fountains are popular art for the outdoors. I purchased a wind sculpture for my backyard and it's the best investment I ever made -- I enjoy watching it turn in the breeze every time I look out the window or am outside. You have to try out the rock furniture too. Each piece is unique and fitted for different body types, so you have to sit in several to find the best one for you. They ship these around the world and I can see why, they're comfortable and a great piece of functional art.
The garden is open all the time, so it's a great place to stop after dinner and listen to the creek flow by and watch the wind sculptures twirl while relaxing in the rock chairs, but don't miss out on browsing the inside of the gallery where you'll see a great selection of diverse art. If you're like me, you'll have something shipped home before you leave.
Again, this is THE place to shop for art in Sedona. Don't miss it.
