Sedona is one of the Southwest’s premium art meccas. There are a multitude of galleries, all of which hold a special charm and interpretation of Sedona.
L’Auberge is nestled along Oak Creek, and right above the resort on Hwy 89A is the Uptown Sedona shopping district, including The Shops at Hyatt Pinon Pointe, which is a great area to shop and dine. We provide complimentary transport there and back for our guests, and there is a staircase on property which accesses Uptown as well.
Of the free standing galleries, the biggest is Exposures International, which has an incredible outdoor sculpture gallery and a wide array of amazing selections encompassing many mediums and styles. Another local favorite is Visions Fine Art Gallery, as they always have surprising and impressive offerings.
To see the work of some of the local and “emerging” artists we recommend a visit to the Art Mart Gallery in West Sedona, which features the works of 130 artists in many mediums. Also in West Sedona, there is the Goldenstein Gallery, which features a number of their works in our arrivals building and restaurant area.
Also, well worth a half day trip from Sedona is the artist colony of Jerome, about 45 minutes from here, balanced precariously on Cleopatra Hill, half way up Mingus Mountain. Jerome was a booming copper mining town that burnt down and was twice re-built before the mines closed. After that it became a “ghost town” for many years before being re-populated by artists and craftspeople. It is a taste of the old Arizona and “kinda funky”; interesting characters and “different” artwork that is often not mainstream. It is also a great location for wine enthusiasts.
