About the Event

Betty Dion Featured by Sedona Renegades Artist Group

Painter Betty Dion has enjoyed creative activities all her life, devising, among other things, weavings and

pottery that she has always loved to display and share. And as a design consultant for major architectural

firms worldwide, artistry and creation were key components of her professional success as well.

But though she got started as a painter later in life than most artists, she quickly made up for lost time in

that medium. In the last two decades, her paintings have received honors and accolades in a wide array of

galleries and shows, including several solo exhibitions.

The Sedona Renegades Artist Group and the Sedona Center for Harmony and Enrichment are thus

delighted to welcome Dion as the venue’s featured guest artist in March. The public is invited to meet her

and view an engaging sampling of her works at its monthly First Friday reception on March 3 from 5-7:30


Originally a watercolor painter, Dion started out as a self-taught artist in that medium. But after her initial

successes, she traveled across multiple continents to bolster her skills via advanced classes and

workshops. When she arrived for one in Sedona, she was immediately captivated by the area’s

monumental red rocks and vivid lights and shadows – inspirational for a plein air painter. In response,

she added acrylics to her repertoire to capture the strong values and intense colors of the region.

She has been fascinated with the Southwest ever since – so much so, in fact, that she founded the Sedona

Plein Air Network, a group of like-minded artists who gather regularly to visit and interpret new settings.

“My style style is constantly evolving,” she notes, “as I explore different ways to represent this

magnificent landscape.”

Sedona Center for Harmony & Enrichment is a welcoming rental space that is a home for

practitioners, artists, and event creators. In addition to the Renegades art exhibits, it hosts private healing

sessions, yoga classes, movement classes, workshops, intimate retreats, meditative art classes, meditation

groups, women’s circles, men’s circles and more. For information on renting this space, contact Tatia

Fick at (928) 554-1951 or visit .

The Sedona Renegades Artist Group has been long known for organizing exhibits in local venues and is

now delighted to be in residence at SCHE. Led by Jim Peterson, Carol Gandolfo, and Karen O’Donnell,

the group features an outstanding guest artist each month plus many fine works by its distinguished

member artists.

The Renegades include Jodie Ball, Janice Davis, Carol Gandolfo, Rick Gandolfo, David Marsh, Kerani

Marie, Karen O’Donnell, Jim Peterson, and Rafael Ramos.

Their exhibit can be viewed in the heart of gallery row on the upper level of Hozho Center, 431 State

Route 179, Suite A6, Sedona, AZ 86336. For more information, contact Jim Peterson at 602-828-7407 or
