Sedona AZ (April 12, 2017) – Red Rose Inspiration For Animals has been promoting Art Shows to benefit animal welfare since the fall 2009. Red Rose provides many free services throughout the community such as spay and neuter, sponsoring homeless pet owners with transitional housing, and assisting pet owners that are financially challenged with emergency medical assistance for their feline or canine. In 2016 Red Rose had taken in over 75 felines/canines without a facility, many surrendered out of desperation. Red Rose also has a division called Raven Pines Dog Rescue that is focused on rehabilitation of those who have suffered emotional or physical abuse helping them to become adoptable and a sanctuary for those that are not.
Red Rose is grateful to all of their supporters including the talented artists who help support their mission by participating in the small yet quality shows that take place exclusively at the Olde Sedona Bar and Grill and Redrock Precision Motors at 1405 West Hwy 89A in West Sedona. These shows are the only ones benefitting animal welfare, and are not affiliated with any other events or shows.
This Earth Day weekend April 22 and 23 four very special artists that love animals will be participating in the Red Rose Art Show.
Jenny Emminger is a native of Arizona and graduate of NAU. She loves clay and the process, as it uses all the elements of earth, air, fire and water. Jenny uses a signature process making clay to mimic the red rocks of Sedona. Each decorative piece is handcrafted with good intent and suffused with the beauty of love for nature.
Jenny’s partner Bear Schutz also displays the most interesting guitars made of “upcycled” materials. Each one is handcrafted using recycled and repurposed materials. Not only are they works of art but also fully functional instruments.

She uses natural gemstones, pearls, natural leather, sterling silver, copper, brass and niobium in her designs. Her techniques are wire wrapping, hand knotted silk and macramé. Christine says “I get great pleasure from designing a piece that is unique, comfortable to wear, made with quality craftsmanship and is beautiful.”
