Lanning Gallery: Lanning Gallery opens Experience of Nature: The Art of Judith Monroe. This artist has developed a uniquely fascinating technique for her mixed media landscapes of the Sedona area.

This image transfer becomes the ground of her painting with collage elements adding texture and pencils, acrylic glazes and wax pastels adding color. The resulting imagery, with near hidden elements of text and sketches, is a richly layered experience that draws viewers in. Works range from 6 inches square to 3 feet long.
