|This colorful event begins at Keep Sedona Beautiful where Susie Reed will share fascinating insights about rock art, archaeology and sacred sites she's been photographing and studying in the Sedona area for more than 18 years. Her depth of experience gives her some unique perspectives and an intimate knowledge of her subjects. While following her passion she's learned from Native Americans, archaeologists, Forest Service workers, shaman and others. She'll recount some of her amazing adventures, which have included documenting solar and lunar markers at archaeoastronomy sites. She'll talk about how and why rock art may have been made, its possible interpretations, the importance of protecting sites and more.
Reed is an eminent rock art photographer whose pictures are enjoyed by collectors in many countries. Through her photos, wisdom and tours she sheds light upon the meaning, beauty, magic and value of ancient sites and rock art. She's well known for magnificently restoring picto-graphs and petroglyphs in her photos by skillfully using modern techno-logy and her innate sensitivity and affinity for her subject. She considers herself a collaborator with artists whose creations she renders. Some of her original photographs will be on hand for people to see courtesy of Goldenstein Gallery where Reed has been showing since 2009.
Following her presentation, Susie Reed will accompany those interested in seeing rock art and dwellings first hand on a specially customized Pink Jeep tour to the Honanki Heritage Site. Their professional guide will talk about the area’s flora, fauna and geology as well as the history of the Sinaguan who inhabited Honanki. Pink Jeep’s full-time site host, who's there to help protect and maintain this one of a kind dwelling, will greet everyone. What’s found on their tour and in Reed’s captivating photos and words are special glimpses of Sedona’s Native American heritage, which evoke a wonderful sense of timelessness, respect and connection to the past.
