   SEDONA , Ariz .   -   The city of Sedona invites the public to attend its next artist reception to view the “Fur & Fiber” exhibit on Thursday , June 2 , 2022 , from 4 to 6 p . m . in the City Council chambers and Vultee Conference Room at City Hall . This exhibit celebrates the work of digital painter Robert Albrecht and fiber artist Shirley Eichten Albrecht . Special music guest will be critically acclaimed artist , William Eaton , New Age guitarist and luthier .
   Albrecht spent many years as a professional photographer in the commercial and fashion industry . He always had a passion for creating the beautiful , the creative and the memorable with his special love for animals . “After I found my expression in digital painting , it was wonderful that I could demonstrate my love for animals and wildlife in this exciting new medium and still utilize my love for photography , ” said Albrecht . He hand paints his subject matter using this new technology , carrying this technique into his classic pet portraits . His rich , classic style exemplifies his belief that all animals have a heart , soul and feelings , which is what he projects in his paintings .
   Eichten Albrecht started her craft in 1987 creating traditional baskets . When the couple moved to Sedona in 2001 , Native American designs began to influence her work . Currently she specializes in figurative pieces , which incorporate raku pottery , deer antlers , beads , geodes , needle weaving and semiprecious stones . Her gourd pieces take on a life of their own during the creative process . “Gourds just speak to me and the sculptures are very organic . I don’t plan out each design . It is intuitive and meditative . Sometimes a gourd will sit in my studio for a year before I decide what I’m going to do with it , ” said Eichten Albrecht . She is a member of Missouri Basketweavers Guild and National Basketry Organization and past president of the Sedona Gallery Association , as well as the Verde Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild . Her work is represented at Rowe Gallery . The couple are members of the Sedona Visual Artists Coalition .
   “I am delighted to exhibit Robert and Shirley’s work together at City Hall . Robert’s talent for capturing the essence of the animals he paints is palpable . His generously donated digital painting portraying Max , the city’s police dog , will also be on display . Shirley’s seasoned basketry skills are evident in the detail she puts into all her naturally woven pieces . I recommend coming June 2nd to meet and greet the artists and to view Shirley’s extended body of work , since her more delicate pieces will only be on display at the reception , ” said Arts and Culture Coordinator Nancy Lattanzi .
