    September 2016: Linda Goldenstein

    Linda GoldensteinA native of Arizona, Linda Goldenstein was born on the Hualapai Indian reservation on Route 66.  Linda moved to the Sedona area in 1969 and has maintained a home here ever since. She was in the branch banking business for 12 years while raising her two young children. She then followed a job offer in Santa Fe, NM, which led her to opening the Santa Fe Craftsman's Guild, a high-end custom furniture and architectural product company. She sold the company in the late 1990's and partnered in an art gallery on Canyon Road, Santa Fe, New Mexico. When 9/11 brought down the Towers she felt it was time to return home to Sedona and to her parents, her children and her grandchildren. Linda is the Founder and President of Goldenstein Gallery in West Sedona, a gallery known for it's innovative approach and sense of community. The gallery has both a local following and collectors that span the globe. Goldenstein Gallery has worked with many charity organizations and supported the performing and visual arts such the Canyon Moon Theater and Sedona Chamber Music as well as humanitarian interests including the Verde Valley Sanctuary.

    Goldenstein Gallery was voted Best Gallery in Sedona for 9 years and counting: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, and represents fine local and regional artists in all styles and mediums including fine art, fine furniture, jewelry, kaleidoscopes. Also featuring an outdoor sculpture garden on almost an acre, Goldenstein Gallery is located just off of SR 89A and Dry Creek Road in West Sedona. Guests are welcomed by a large, stunning sculpture garden with red rock views as the backdrop.
