Spring Themes & Events

Spring, for most people, is a time of anticipation and fulfillment. Spring invigorates life following a period of slumber; it is like a pleasant rain following an oppressive drought; like the eye of a hurricane offering a period of relief between extremes.

Birds & Blooms featured at Greg Lawson's Sedona Art Gallery and MuseumTwo quintessential elements of this cherished season are the bursts of floral offerings and the return of happy voices to the trees, bushes and the grasses of our awakening share.

Global estimates of 400,000 different flowering plant species and more than 10,000 bird varieties means that none of us will see it all, but each of us has ample opportunity to witness a dazzling array of birds and blooms on even a casual outing into the natural world that surrounds us.

A collection of floral gems and feathered friends, frozen in time, will greet customers at the West Sedona location during the Birds & Blooms show this season.

Nature is at the core of Greg Lawson’s image collection and a foundation for his numerous bound and framed art presentations. His lifelong immersion into the natural world has yielded a substantial portfolio of the earth and its many elements.

Known as “a sanctuary place” to slow down and connect with nature, the gallery will be abloom with botanicals and brimming with birdlife during the 1st Friday gallery reception on June 2nd, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

The “Human Nature” exhibition at Greg Lawson Galleries explored a most natural side of humanity: Creativity. Throughout history mankind has demonstrated incredible creative genius in the realms of art and architecture and these subjects were the primary focus in the “Human Nature” show.

Interestingly, among the first images ever captured on film by Lawson were of architectural elements in New York City and though he is known for his work in the natural world, he says: “It’s just as natural for us to build as it is for other earthly creatures to do so. Like some of the other earthlings, we build nests, dams, social centers, cities and highways.  In doing so, our inherent gifts for plotting, planning, designing and engineering give us an edge, and we’ve certainly used it to our advantage.”

Man-made marvels from the oldest monument in existence to the tallest human engineered architectural creation on earth were included in Lawson’s global image showcase on display throughout March.  A special evening “First Friday” reception took place March 3rd.

Greg Lawson Galleries featured an unforgettable concert by “Meadowlark” on Saturday, March 25 at 7:30 pm.

Krakow, Poland

Acknowledging a higher authority has been on the human agenda into antiquity. Greg Lawson’s Passion for Place gallery presents “Houses of Worship” featuring dozens of worship related images assembled from global travels. Diverse global societies have created shrines, temples and churches along with a plethora of statuary and artistic renditions; a sampling of these are included in the current exhibition which began with a gallery reception on Friday, February 3, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

Greg Lawson’s Passion for Place gallery presents a collection of images stripped down to the bare essentials in a Black & White show featuring over twenty monotone print productions created in modern media and historic silver gelatin stylizations.

Greg Lawson Galleries features black and white images from seven continents during January 2017“The trip from black to white contains many shades of grey,” says global image artist Greg Lawson.  “These limited tonal shades have the capacity to focus our attention on subtleties that can make the full spectrum something of a distraction by comparison.”

“A monochrome print is a good storyteller in its own right,” Lawson continues.  “It can make us peer into the image more deeply and therefore pull out of it a greater depth of meaning or understanding, particularly when that’s the purpose of the print.”

“Because it strips our visual cognizance down to the bare minimum, the B&W can sometimes elicit greater insight from within; it opens the door for us to recreate the impression into a message that contains a full spectrum, perhaps not of color and hue, but of subtle or even shrouded messaging.”

All Greg Lawson monochrome or black and white prints are available as museum quality silver gelatin productions on fiber based upgrades, with either selenium or sepia toning.

Guest artist Mary Ratner has two images featured at the gallery this month: Taj Misted and Monument Valley Sunset. Mary has traveled with a camera for as long as she can remember. Self-taught at nineteen she did her learning “on the go” while later discovering workshops and participating annually in The Rocky Mountain School, Santa Fe Institute, and LEPP (George) now Light Photography Studios – to name a few.  “This exposure to great photography, (and great photographers) along with a lot of travel, facilitated my development as a through-the-lens artist with a personal style and outlook,” says Ratner. “I have chased light and lines from Monument Valley to China, but time spent in India and Africa has shaped my World View. Following wildlife has taught me to love light and movement.”

Ha!Man and Joke Debaere

Ha!Man (Francois le Roux) and Joke Debaere

Greg Lawson Galleries welcomed the HA!MAN (Francois le Roux) spontaneous performer and music artist from South Africa in partnership with Belgian actress and word artist Joke (yoo-ke) Debaere on Thursday, November 3rd at 7:00 pm.

Spontaneity lies at the core of a Ha! performance. “We cover a range, from raw improvisation at one end, to prepared items at the other, unless we do a full-on improvised performance, usually acoustic – piano and dramatic voice, for instance,” says the Ha!Man.  “Normally, our performances are item based with no pre-planned programme. I draw from a pool of accompaniments next to me on my laptop, then improvise along with it, mostly with the cello, but also keyboard, flutes, dancing and whistling. Joke would join me at times, improvising with words in a poetic-song like manner, finding expression for her own feelings, telling stories or addressing issues of human import. The whole show becomes a journey, broadly starting out slow and soft, going into high energy and challenging sounds, culminating in more home-coming and connecting items, by which time interaction with the audience might have grown – sometimes even towards everyone joining into song or dance. The HA!Show adapts naturally to different types of settings and audiences, but generally flourishes in a focused and open-minded atmosphere.”

The first fifteen ticket reservations included a complimentary copy of the “Music in the Air” DVD, a collaborative production featuring the music and compositions of Francois le Roux combined with images of nature through the seasons by Greg Lawson.

"Born Free" - Greg Lawson's encounters with wildlife at Greg Lawson's Passion for Place art gallery in Sedona, ArizonaSharing a love for animals and nature, Greg Lawson’s “Passion for Place” Gallery in West Sedona presents an image showcase of eye-catching wildlife encounters in an exhibition of over 100 images of creatures in their own habitats on all continents.

“For me, being with animals in the wild places of the earth is a wonderful experience,” says naturalist-photographer Greg Lawson. “I am there first to be in their company. I never use a flash when working with animals, in fact, I don’t even own one. My style is to be with them and for them to know that I am there. Many wonderful encounters in the field have shown me that some of them feel the same way toward human interaction.”

Photographers Greg Griffin and Grazina Wade are among the artists featured in Greg Lawson Galleries' World Tour Event 2016 in Sedona, Arizona

Greg Lawson’s Passion for Place gallery spotlights individual area photographers at our “World Tour” exhibition event which debuted with an artist’s reception on Friday June 3 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Stephanie Brand, Russ Glindmeier, Greg Griffin, JK Lovelett, Mary Ratner, David W. Schafer, Grazina Wade and Mark Zyga are among the artists that will be represented in the Sedona World Tour event in June. These and other photographers will join Greg Lawson Galleries as the show moves to Las Vegas and Phoenix later in 2016.

“Having a mix of photographers in the show is a treat for all concerned because though most people can see, we each see a little differently and that makes photography the perfect medium for displaying both sweeping and subtle differences in visionary style,” says naturalist-photographer and World Tour producer Greg Lawson. “The World Tour theme promotes an eclectic mix of these variations and of the artists that employ them.”

The Sedona World Tour exhibition will be featured through June and July with an eclectic mix of images including global destinations, landscapes, animals and architecture.

Greg Lawson Galleries welcomes the arrival of spring with a focus on native and naturalized plant life through April and May.  The “Roots of Contentment” image art show includes some of the oldest trees, some of the greatest stands of forest, some of the most prolific of wildflowers, and examples of common plants that are likely to be considered regional staples to natives, while holding an exotic allurement for visitors to almost any region.

“Trees have long been a symbol of contentment to me, not because they are always content in their environment, but because generally speaking they spend their entire life in just one place. Even their offspring may set up roots far away from them,” Lawson says. “Plant life in general provides an excellent educational model in the realms of adaptability, sustainability, endurance, use of energy, all the while offering a generally pleasant, and sometimes overwhelming, attraction to Earth’s more migratory life forms.”

Appalachian Spring, Greg Lawson Photography, Roots of ContentmentVisitors will see images ranging from expansive forest down to intimate floral details. Six continents of Earth have representation in the show and even the sea has not been excluded. Wildflowers, flowers in cultivation, trees and bushes in plantation all have tremendous appeal to the human senses and the sense of vision is to be rewarded during the coming weeks at the “Roots of Contentment” exhibition featured through April and May.

“First Friday” receptions took place on April 1st and May 6th.

As autumn falls and winter rises, fall motifs and winter themes blend at Greg Lawson’s “Passion for Place” gallery where the essence of both seasons is exhibited through global landscape and wildlife imagery. “Winter’s Wonder” featuring nature’s frosty transformations were highlighted at a meet-and-greet artist reception hosted Friday December 4th from 5:00-8:00 pm at the West Sedona gallery.

In the march of seasons there is a time when color fails. The closer one is to either of Earth’s Poles the more one sees marvelous tints of fall color overtaken by grays and whites in varietal earthscapes. Diminished winter light, when reflected off snow and ice, results in the capacity to brighten even the darkest days.

What arrives on summer winds in the American Southwest is what some of us long for all through the rest of the year.  It’s not the heat of summer that entices us, but rapturous splendor in the clouds that refashions mundane into something in the realm of magnificence.  Flash, crackle, boom and then a brief downpour of liquid moderation. These are the reasons we long for and stay for the summer winds.  Visit Greg Lawson’s “Passion for Place” gallery throughout the season as we showcase images that celebrate “The Summer Winds.”
