The 1st Annual “Red Rock Canvas” event will be held the weekend of November 7-9 in Sedona, Arizona. It is being presented by the Sedona Gallery Association. The entire city will come alive with art events beginning with receptions Friday evening, November 7th from 5-8 at every SGA gallery. Events, artist dialogues, tours, brunches, demonstrations, and more, will abound weekend long. Special activities and accommodation packages allow visitors to fully customize their weekend with wine tastings, spa or adventure packages and more.
Actress/Artist Jane Seymour, spokesperson for one of the Gala’s beneficiaries, Camp Soaring Eagle, will be in attendance to share news of the camp being constructed in the nearby Village of Oak Creek; the camp aspires to become a member of Paul Newman’s internationally acclaimed “Hole in the Wall Camps.” Human Nature Dance Theatre is another beneficiary; they perform throughout Northern Arizona integrating live music, spoken word and dramatic light effects with movement to create a most unique experience. The Gala’s Honoree, John Waddell, has been active in the Arizona arts for over fifty years. Best known for bronze sculptures of female nudes in motion, Waddell has public works on display from California to New York, with many in prominent locations in Phoenix, Arizona. Tours of his studio and vast sculpture garden will be available on Sunday, November 9th. Waddell’s life-size and greater than life-size sculptures, noted for their grace and realism, are each a celebration of how great a human being can be.

Now that the Cubs have clinched their spot in the playoffs, I thought it was high time I gave a short review on why you need to go to Wrigley Field. Wrigley Field is one of those places you have to go once in your life, even if you don’t like baseball. Personally, I have been to Wrigley Field, I think, about 4 times. This last time was last Tuesday, right before they clinched.
Why should you visit Wrigley? The atmosphere alone makes it worth the trip. I have never seen such die hard fans (the only exception I make to this is Lambeau Field). Everyone was nice (even after Bill and I sat in the wrong seats). It doesn’t take much to get the crowd into the game either. All nine innings that Cubs were cheered for. We even have our own version of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”, and I don’t think there was a soul in there who wasn’t singing. I don’t think there is a bad seat in the place either. Our tickets have been all over the stadium, and they were always good seats. You can also feel the history there. This is an old stadium, and it definitely has character.
I have only one complaint about Wrigley Field. The food stinks. We wanted to go to one of the restaurants inside, but they were closed to private parties, so we ended up eating from the concession stand. Ick and expensive.
It is great to be in a place with such team spirit. As we left the game, Cubs fans were still singing the “Go, Cubs, Go” song all the way down to the street. Now that they are in the playoffs, I can only imagine the atmosphere to get better and better.
Have you been to Wrigley Field? What was your experience like?
