It takes a grand passion for art to enter the Sedona art scene as boldly as have Thomas and Jennifer Bryant Nagel. Lanning Gallery, over thirty-one years, had grown to over 3700 square feet and with over 50 artists gained the distinct reputation as the finest Classic and Contemporary gallery in Sedona, Arizona.
With an absolute appreciation for and recognition of the foundation laid for them, the Bryant Nagels, avid art-lovers, are dedicated to continuing the gallery’s strong legacy as they usher in the years and decades to come.
Thomas Bryant Nagel, with passions in photography and sculpture, received Bachelor Degrees in both Advertising and Photography from Northern Arizona University (NAU) as well as an Associate Degree in Computer Sciences. He has strong professional strengths in operations management which will be vital in updating the galleries’ infrastructure and streamlining efficiencies with an eye toward increased social media, national and international presences.
Dr. Jennifer Bryant Nagel received her MFA from Notre Dame and holds a PhD in English Literature. She is beginning a one-year post as a lecturer at NAU offering four courses each semester in subjects that include Women’s Literature and Theory as well as American Gothic Fiction. From a family of art collectors and being an educator, Jennifer strongly believes that “art is that thing that makes us human.” She and Thomas look forward to raising their young daughter, Evelyn, with that same orientation to life, to surrounding her with the gallery’s art and teaching her, by example that you really can get up each day and do something you love.
Executive Director Isabelle Cozart joined Lanning Gallery in 1998 after more than fifteen years in the art business. Cozart had distinguished herself in corporate art including the curation of established major corporate collections as well as building corporate collections from the ground up. She worked alongside the founders of the Sedona Gallery Association and continues to play an important role as an SGA officer and on the SGA Marketing Committee.
