When visiting Sedona, Arizona, most like to experience the amazing art scene. It is often the case that there are just too many stops to make, and it can be difficult to fit them all into a short vacation. That’s why we recommend stopping into the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village in Sedona. Here, you’ll find several stunning art galleries all in one place. Within Tlaquepaque you can dine, and also shop.
The Andrea Smith Gallery is right near the highway 89A entrance to Tlaquepaque. Stop in for a colorful array of wall art and our favorite – pocket shrines! Don’t be surprised if you find an artist working in or right outside of the gallery doors.
Stroll through Tlaquepaque’s beautiful ‘old Mexico’ feel to then visit Kuivato, A Creative Gateways Gallery; located near the central water fountain. Here you can get a taste of local artists to Sedona and Arizona. From glass, to functional art, to handcrafted silver jewelry – you just won’t want to miss this stop. There is also live music that often takes place near this gallery.
Travel through beautiful arched and tiled doorways to a vine covered oasis, where you will find Mountain Trails Gallery. Located in Sedona for over 30 years, this will be your best stop for landscapes, wildlife imagery and western artifacts.
Amongst the many other art galleries in Tlaquepaque, be sure to visit The Ascending Spirit Gallery: A Honshin Fine Art Gallery. Once you find this quaint space, you will have the opportunity to walk up a set of lovely tiled stairs looking over Tlaquepaque’s walls. Honshin’s work ranges from jewelry to vases to wall-art; from all backgrounds of religion and spirituality. You may even find yourself visiting on a day when Honshin is actually working within his on-site studio.
On the edge of Tlaquepaque you’ll find Vue, A Renee Taylor Gallery. Step into an installation of spinning wind sculptures, followed by animal sculptures that can be crafted to your exact color requests. Glass cases filled with jewelry also await you in this modern and contemporary space.
It’s difficult not to bump into a gallery In Sedona, especially if you’re stopping into the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. Also be sure to check the Tlaquepaque website for upcoming events such as: Day of the Dead Celebration (in fall), or Sweet Stroll (taking place during December).
