Renee Taylor Gallery is a paid advertiser of Sonoran Living.

Renee Taylor Gallery is one of the largest and most varied contemporary jewelry and art exhibitions in the Southwest. Spread over three locations in Tlaquepaque Village in Sedona Arizona, the owners Renee and Mike Taylor have created a carefully curated collection of nearly 80 artists that is sure to entice any art or jewelry aficionado, whether they are starting with their very first piece (one of their staff's most favorite experiences) or a seasoned collector who is looking to expand on their journey to bring more beauty into their life. There are no limits to what you can pursue in their family of galleries when it comes to seeking out beautiful textures, exciting techniques, or exquisite hand crafted pieces whether it is for your home, your landscape, or treating yourself to that special piece of jewelry

The oldest location is at the front of Tlaquepaque, simply called Renee Taylor Gallery. There you can discover the primary collection of renowned metal artist Peter Skidd, whose shimmering colorful installations will make any home a work of art. Josiane Childers has a fantastic exhibition of multidimensional reverse painted Plexiglas and steel pieces that weave a fabric of colorful textures onto a wall, beautifully complemented by her complex abstract canvases. Rick Stewart has been an icon in the region for decades, and his wonderful metal wall sculptures with "Little People" are sure to make you smile.

Alongside the world famous Oak Creek lies Vue Gallery, with a enchanting courtyard built around legendary wind sculpture artist Lyman Whitaker. Lyman's copper wind sculptures have mesmerized viewers for over 30 years, towering up into the Sycamore trees and creating a forest of movement for you to explore. Inside the gallery Renee and Mike have created one of the world's largest collections of Loet Vanderveen's flowing bronze sculptures of wildlife from around the world, with patinas in every imaginable color and texture that leaves the viewer connecting to nature in ways they never expected. Those are only two of about 15 artists at the Vue Gallery that make it an amazing experience.

A short distance away on the north side of the Village lies Renee Taylor Jewelry. A standalone building housing an expansive collection of jewelry ranging from inexpensive fashion up to spectacular fine jewelry pieces by artists such as Alex Sepkus, Simon G, Bernd Wolf and many others. We have one of the largest collections of William Henry knives, jewelry, writing instruments and accessories in the world beautifully displayed and waiting to be discovered here as well. All three locations feature a range of our jewelry artists, but this location is definitely not to be missed.

Renee and Mike have spent nearly 20 years building the collection on display all over Tlaquepaque, you owe it to yourself to come explore and discover what master craftspeople around the world have made for you.
