It is an art community of ruggedly individualistic expression, from cutting-edge contemporary to visionary, Native American to modern realism. This burgeoning level of cultural activity helped foster Sedona's reputation as a destination. Sedona now rivals Santa Fe and Scottsdale in its richness of the arts.

Where there is art, there are galleries. Over 40 Sedona galleries showcase contemporary, representational and traditional artists who are known nationally and internationally. This creates a full calendar of openings, artist receptions, demonstrations and workshops to keep the art aficionado entertained year 'round.

Every first Friday of the month, several of Sedona's most prominent art galleries host an evening of openings, technique demonstrations and receptions, from 5-8 p.m. The Sedona Trolley offers free transportation as it makes a continuous loop between participating galleries.
