About the Event
Join us for a night of art and story telling!
Fetured artists include:
Barbara Ragalyi - Painter
“As far back as I can remember, I have understood composition and the principles of art."
It is the beauty of this unseen part of our Universe that Barbara’s art expresses, a visual music. This is the space Louise MacDonald writes of in her art review: “All is surrounded by unknown space, a concept that forms the essence of Ragalyi's art and reflects the wide range of her inquiring mind.” Some paintings are non-objective while others are figurative or abstracted stone shapes. The rock paintings are about sheltering that deep, dark, inner, hidden space, or a beautiful nugget. They are the opposite of the grand music and energy paintings.
Pamela Becker - Upscale Zen Art
Direct individual experience of one’s own true nature.
Pamela is presently creative director of Big Vision Art + Design, a professional illustrator, fine artist, and designer whose work and life are inspired by her exploration of human consciousness. Her approach inspires glimpses of potentialities beyond beliefs and expectations. Educated by the Rhode Island School of Design, with a BA in Illustration and Design, Pamela’s creations are skillfully crafted, and capture the sacred essence within everyone.
Jim Peterson - Photographer
Jim’s work is inspired by a lifelong love of the natural world, which in turn was a very predictable result of growing up in the Southwest. If his images convey a bit of reverence for our threatened planet and its beautiful territories and inhabitants, then he feels that he is happily serving his mission. His works have been nominated as finalists in several prestigious international competitions, and his infrared image Half Moon over Cockscomb Ridge recently took the “First Place – Outstanding Achievement” award in one of these competitions.
Delores Winkelstern - Healing Artist
Working as a Commercial Artist in my home state of New York gave me great insights into the art field. I was introduced to many varieties of mediums and loved to paint, create and explore new techniques. It was not until moving to Sedona, Arizona that my boundaries collapsed and a new spectrum of artistic endeavors were built. Spiritual ideas and pathways into healing art and connectivity energies of gemstones were exciting. I hope you enjoy the Journey with my husband Phil and I, our hope is that you Expect The Unexpected. Visit our webpage at http://www.ajourneythroughart.com/
Alisa Gabriele - Sculptor
Alisa's bold female forms in bronze, alabaster and marble reflect playful, psychological and sexual themes of what it means to be a woman, vulnerable and powerful, vital and fertile, nurturer and life-giver, and Mother of humanity.
Alisa creates soft, undulating curves out of the hard stone, imbuing her sculpture with a deep sensuality. Her pieces often humorous, sometimes profound, sometimes erotic, elicit powerful reactions in the observers - a desire to touch the undulating feminine forms, or to get in touch with their own sensuality or playfulness.

Jerry Littleton - Abstract Artist
Jerry started his abstract art career using newspaper grade inks and tiny trowels used for flooring, as he was in that industry for over 12 years. Abstract spoke to him much more than some of the landscapes and portrait pieces he had created early in his life. So, once he had the ink (from a friend who worked at the local newspaper) he began moving the ink around with the trowels until images appeared to him. He stopped naming many of his pieces after hearing that people saw many more images that surprised and delighted him. Sometimes people saw totally different images than what he had seen, as well.

Honoring the 76th Anniversary of the Bombing of Hiroshima
Join Jim Berenholtz for an artistic trip through time as he honors the 76th Anniversary of Hiroshima. Jim will share an incredible story about his global pilgrimage. "The First Light Pilgrimage for a Nuclear Free Planet" which was undertaken by performing artists and Takashi Tanemori in 1999.
THE FIRST LIGHT focuses on the life story of Takashi Tanemori, a Hibakusha, or Hiroshima survivor, who was eight years old when the bomb was dropped on his hometown. Takashi's treacherous and emotional journey from Japan to America and back, from youth to old age, from vengeful hate to forgiveness, and his eventual emergence as a peacemaker, becomes the thread around which the historical characters and events of the nuclear era are woven.
