Red Rose Inspiration For Animals is a local 501c3 nonprofit that supports animal welfare and has been promoting Art Shows in West Sedona since 2009. These are the only art shows throughout the Verde Valley that proceeds benefit a non-profit for animal welfare.
The Red Rose shows generate revenue for the various long term existing animal related programs such as low-cost spay and neuter services of felines and canines belonging to pet owners on a fixed income and needing financial assistance. Animals that continue to reproduce are often abused, injured, neglected, or euthanized as there is a huge over pet population problem and spay and neuter is the only solution.
Virgil J. Nez has lived on the reservation since the sixties, young Virgil Nez found himself herding sheep and studying the petroglyphs on nearby rocks. Soon, he was carving his own rock designs, then teaching himself to layer colors, and developing his sense of expression.
Over time, he began to capture and convey the cultural symbols which communicate the integrity of the Navajo as a community of people. It’s an art-form that has served him well “in this hectic world (by) shifting from impressionistic or pointillist style to realism and symbolic,” said Nez.
His formal training led him to architectural and design studies at Mesa Community College, and then to a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in illustration and painting from Northern Arizona University. Since his graduation in 1991, painting – in pastel, watercolor and oil – has been his calling. In a realistic style, he began exhibiting his work and winning major awards at Indian art markets all over the Southwest.
Don’t miss these specific featured artists at the art show this weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday February 17 to 19th from 10 am to 5 pm Free parking and admission with live music with Mike Peters.
