The Sedona Renegades Artist Group and the Sedona Center for Harmony and Enrichment are pleased to
welcome Elizabeth Silk as the venue’s guest artist in April. The public is cordially invited to meet her
and view an engaging sampling of her works at the venue’s monthly First Friday reception on April 7
from 5-7:30 PM.
In addition, the reception will include a raffle of fine artworks to assist the Sedona Police Department in
supporting the Special Olympics of Arizona (SOAZ). Tickets for the raffle can be purchased during the
reception. Officer Catherine Beers, who spearheads the SPD’s efforts on behalf of SOAZ, will speak
about the activities of the Special Olympics – “a global movement working to improve the lives of people
with intellectual disabilities and transform the lives of everyone they touch.”
Elizabeth Silk is of Native American - Sioux and Chippewa - descent from her father and English descent
from her mother. She was raised by her grandparents in Cheshire, England.
She studied at the Laird School of Art, Wallasey Art College, and Liverpool Polytechnic, and then
established a lifelong career as an artist and healer. Her art has been shown throughout the United States
and Europe, including at the prestigious Liverpool Art Gallery.
Upon arrival in America, she began pursuing the ideas and practices of her ancestral and cultural heritage.
These themes are at the heart of her artwork, portraying Native Americans as proud and strong. A touch
of emotion and the spirit of love permeate her art, communicating unspoken, soul-felt messages.
Since the mid-1990s, she has lived in Sedona, where many artists are concentrated because they find
spiritual energy that is so conducive to creativity. Her style changed dramatically upon being introduced
to Sedona, exploring the freedom within us all and awakening the undaunted spirit.
