event | Lifelong Retrospective of Adele Seronde "60 Years of Chasing Light"
Mar 06, 2015 - Mar 30, 2015
In collaboration with the Sedona Arts Center there will be a Lifelong Retrospective of Adele Seronde's art in their lower galleries from March 6-29th featuring special talks and a poetry reading by Adele and her impact as the founder of Gardens for Humanity. Adele Seronde, comes from a long line of painters, weavers, woodworkers, and poets. Both painter and poet, as well as a community and environmental activist, her family has been central to her life. She has had numerous solo exhibitions in this country and in Italy, mostly landscapes in oil on canvas. Throughout her career she studied under Karl Knaths at the Phillips Museum in Washington D.C. and Bennington College in Vermont.
Known for her unique style of painting, she does not use an easel. Instead she prefers to lay the canvas flat on the ground, often placing additional canvases around it expanding the painting.
Adele has written several poetry books including Deliver into Green and her most recent work Our Sacred Garden -The Living Earth.
Her current work as a painter focuses on the gardens she loves and she sees the garden as both a symbolic and an actual way of changing and healing our selves, our communities, and our planet.
Occurring simultanously with our opening reception on March 6 there will be an opening reception with a poetry reading between 4 & 5pm at Sedona Arts Center with Adele Seronde. The following week the exhibition expands into the Theatre Gallery and March 15th there will be a second reception from 5-7pm.
