2022- 2023 Sculptor Group presentations are continually being updated. Be sure to check back regularly.
NOTE: Unless an event is posted as ‘OPEN’, all events/ presentations are for paying AAG members. Presenters are paid $100 for presentations. That money comes from dues paid by AAG members.
Certain accommodations MAY be made for non-members, if there is room. But must be okayed by me, first.
This month the sculptors group will be traveling to Sedona on Saturday, March 25: Our hosts will be the residences of Dorothea Tanning and Max Ernst’s home, AND the studio of John Waddell. The schedule is below. For those that want to carpool, please use the FB sculptors group page to reach out to each other for carpooling. If you contact me about carpooling with other members I will have to give them your email address.
NOTE: This is a members event. The number of people allowed into the studios and carpooling limits numbers. If you want to bring someone who’s not a member, you MUST let me know and I will you know, Friday morning, if there is room.
- 7:40 carpoolers pool-up in the parking lot of the Texas Road House, 2600 W. Happy Valley Road, to leave by 8am at the latest. It’s in the northwestern corner of Norterra Shopping Center near the movie theater. ( with the storms in Sedona and it being the weekend, we will be sticking to an 8am, leave Norterra, time)
- We will leave, to head to Sedona by 8am at the latest.
- 9:45 everyone arrives in the parking lot of the Sedona Arts Center, 15 Art Barn Road, in Sedona. The Art Center fronts on State Route 89A at the northeast end of downtown Sedona. The parking lot is in the rear. Here, we’ll do our best to squeeze into three vehicles.
- 10:00 we arrive at the Capricorn House, former home and studio of Dorothea Tanning and Max Ernst. Our host will be the current owner, Mark Round.
- 12:00 we return to the Sedona Arts Center to have lunch in Sedona. I’ll try to find a nearby restaurant that can seat a crowd our size. After eating, folks can visit the exhibition by Juried Members at the Sedona Arts Center.
- 1:35 everyone recovers their rides from the Sedona Arts Center, and we convoy westward on State Route 89A to John Waddell’s studio, 10050 E. Cornville Road, Cornville.
- 2:00 to 4:00, we visit John Waddell’s studio. Our hostess will be Ruth Waddell, John’s widow.
- 4:00 we head home, probably by driving into Cottonwood to pick up East Cornville Road east back to Route 17 south.”
We hope you can join us,

Rick Rosenberg (who kindly donated 30+ cactus to the AAG), has invited us to his Open Garden event.
The Open Garden will be on Sat, April 22 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM. 5916 East Caballo Dr.
Paradise Valley, AZ 85253.
There will be other artists and plant friends there. There will be some snacks, etc. The garden
is an old horse property. So, it started flat and bare. Now, 30 years later, it is an amazing
botanical garden. Dozens of varieties of cacti, agave and aloes. Rick’s sculptures are placed
throughout the garden. He works in stone, metals and multiple subjects.
This is an OPEN event, so friends are welcome.
