event | Linda Goldenstein Speaks at OLLI
Oct 22, 2014 - Oct 22, 2014
At the Western Gateway to Sedona, you'll find our local high school, community college, medical center, public library, and now the Goldenstein Gallery.
Why is this gallery, voted Sedona's best in newspaper polls over the past seven years, located so far from most other Sedona art galleries? What considerations guide an art gallery owner's thinking when making a wide range of other challenging choices, such as which artists to exhibit?
Find out directly from the gallery's owner, Linda Goldenstein, at Lunch and Learn, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute's (OLLI's) Keynote Speaker program, in room 34 of Yavapai College’s Sedona Center (on Cultural Park Place, across Rte 89A from Red Rock High School) on Wednesday, October 22, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm.
“Lunch & Learn” is a “town square” for local residents to meet, chat, and interact with speakers doing interesting and important things in town. This enjoyable, informative, weekly community event is free and open to all!
Linda Goldenstein contributes to community life in Sedona in many ways, through the Chamber of Commerce (as Vice-chairwoman of the Board), Sedona NOW TV Channel 18, the Sedona International Film Festival, the Mary Fisher Theater, Sedona Chamber Music, the Verde Valley Sanctuary, the Sedona Gallery Association (which developed the First Friday event), and several other organizations.
Goldenstein's family lived on the Hualapai Indian reservation on Route 66 when she was born and she has several Hualapai cousins named Goldenstein living there today. She graduated from Camp Verde High School and was a banker for 12 years there while raising her two young children. After moving to Santa Fe, NM, she opened the Santa Fe Craftsman's Guild, which made custom furniture and architectural components, and helped run art galleries. Soon after 9/11, she returned to Sedona, to be with the five generations of her family that lived here and to continue her engagement with the art world.
She has received several local awards, including a Mayor’s Arts Award and an entrepreneurial award by the North American Business Women. Her gallery has shown the work of many internationally renowned artists and celebrities, such as Tony Curtis, but now focuses on over 50 exceptional local and regional artists.
Bring your lunch (or come for complimentary coffee, tea, water, and a little snack) and join the conversation at 12:30, or come from 1:00 – 2:00 to learn about the adventures of Linda Goldenstein, gallery owner.
