Sculptured Skies

SCOTTSDALE.... New work by California painter Gail Morris is on view at Bonner David Galleries beginning April 20. Her vibrant, abstracted landscapes portray fields, shores, and hills-with clean, sophisticated lines denoting the contrast between land and sky. Morris signs copies of her latest book, Horizon Lines, at an artist's reception on Thursday, April 20, from 6 to 9 p.m., and the paintings remain on view through May 9. A show featuring John Burton and Gabor Svagrik, whose paintings celebrate the beauty of landscapes, cityscapes, and people from around the world, continues through April 18.

Gail Morris, April 20-May 9/John Burton and Gabor Svagrik, through April 18, Bonner David Galleries, 480.941.8500, www.bonnerdavid.com

Spring Color

SEDONA.... This month Lanning Gallery gathers together a collection of landscape paintings, handmade furniture, and glassworks for a special spring show. New Mexico artist Ed Klink's acrylic landscapes are instantly recognizable for their colorful horizons, typically spotlighting a cluster of trees. The American artisan group Sticks carves and paints each furniture creation by hand, with an oeuvre ranging from nesting tables to benches to chairs and ottomans. And studio glass artist Randi Solin approaches her work with a two-dimensional vision, "like a painter to a canvas or a weaver using thread to create an intricate tapestry," says Solin, whose works show off her layering process. Meet the artists at a reception on Friday, April 21, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Elements of Color, April 1-30, Lanning Gallery, 928.
