For many who visit Sedona, they come for peace, tranquility and time in nature. Some will experience a yoga class or hike a scenic trail, while others take part in meditation or crystal learning. Whatever the time permits, the central theme seems to be around ‘being in the moment’.
While among the galleries in Sedona’s art scene, be sure to stop into those that feature Buddha. As a symbol of one-ness and peace, Buddha is a creative focus for some in Sedona. One gallery favorite among visitors is the Goldenstein Gallery, in Uptown Sedona. Here, travelers will enjoy a colorful array of paintings, sculpture, and even prayer wheels.
For a piece of artwork symbolizing compassion, check out, ‘Our Time Is Now’ – a pointillism piece by artist, Sherab Khandro. This colorful palette of purples and oranges are built around the Medicine Buddha.
Another stop to make on the path to a peaceful home or office would be the Andrea Smith Gallery within Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. Buddha is reflected in art sculptures of wood, jade and even labradorite!
If you seek a smaller expression of peace, be sure to ask about the pocket shrines by Heyoka Merrifield, featured at the Andrea Smith Gallery. Each unique, each petite and detailed - you may just fall in love with one and take it home with you.
