Dads and Grads

June 7, 5-8 p.m.

“A Moment in Caught Time” Bronze Sculpture by Ken Rowe

Whether you’re a dad or a grad – or you’re shopping for a dad or grad – Rowe Fine Art Gallery presents a show that’s just for you. Hooray for Dads and Grads happens Friday, June 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. as part of the Sedona Gallery Association’s 1st Friday Gallery Tour. Come to Tlaquepaque’s destination gallery for a glass of wine and appetizers, and celebrate the favorite dads and grads in your life with the gift of fine art. Rowe Fine Art Gallery offers a range of items at various price points, making it easy to say “I love you” or “Congratulations” with a gift that can be passed down for generations.

At the show, art lovers will be treated to a sneak peek of a new, still untitled, uncast, sculpture by gallery owner and renowned bronze wildlife sculptor Ken Rowe. Ken will debut the companion piece to his very popular fly-fishing sculpture, A Moment Caught in Time. The new bronze depicts the same fisherman trying to net the fish caught in the predecessor piece. Ken grew up fishing the rivers of Arizona and can still be found fly-fishing in Oak Creek when he’s not in the studio or in the gallery. In recent years, the wildlife sculptor has been branching out to include figurative pieces, much to the delight of his collectors. “When you work on the human figure, you’re under the microscope,” says Ken. “I’m fortunate that my figurative pieces have been so well received.”

At the show, make sure you look for new oil paintings depicting the Grand Canyon from Sedona artist Lynn Heil. Those in the know will remember when the gallery announced Lynn’s “painting safaris” earlier this year. Lynn is back from his Grand Canyon excursion, and the results of his pilgrimages are something you have to experience in person.
