Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village is not only a Sedona local favorite and visitor favorite, but people visiting the entire state of Arizona travel just to stop into this magical space. Full of shops, places to snack and eat – Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village is most well-known for its art galleries.
Although there are many exquisite art galleries within the Tlaquepaque walls, two of our favorites are: the Ascending Spirit Gallery: A Honshin Fine Gallery and Renee Taylor Gallery.
As the Ascending Spirit Gallery name suggests, to visit this space, you must ascend an adobe and tiled staircase to a beautiful studio overlooking the grounds of Tlaquepaque. With the belief that nature inspires art and art inspires science, artwork is portrayed through light, composition and color.
Gallery Co-Owner and artist, Honshin shares:
“Art tells a story and that changes our state of being to a higher state of health. Physically the immune system gets stronger, psychologically the feelings of peace and connection to others increases and this improves our health.”
The Ascending Spirit Gallery is located at: 336 State Route 179, Suite C-205 – within the beautiful walls of Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village.
Also while in Tlaquepaque, you will probably catch sight of the Renee Taylor Gallery. Owners Mike and Renee Taylor have curated 40+ artist’s work within this colorful space. With a large selection of jewelry, there is no end to the amount of time you could spend perusing and exploring all of the works.
The staff members at Renee Taylor Gallery are very informative in helping you understand the art within the gallery, the jewelry stones in each piece and history on each artist. During Sedona’s 1st Friday in the Galleries event, Renee Taylor Gallery greets visitors and locals alike, during the hours of 5pm-8pm for a closer look at contemporary art, while enjoying cookies! Renee Taylor Gallery is located at: 336 State Route 179, Suite B124.
