Bridging the passage between the old year and the new, Healing Interconnections: Nature, Spirit, Art, an art exhibition and series of events, opens at the Sedona Posse Grounds Hub on Sunday, Dec. 10, and continues through Saturday, Jan. 27.

Exploring and celebrating the interrelationship between nature, art, spirit and health with images, words and music, this has something for everyone.

The opening reception on Sunday, Dec. 10, from 3 to 6 p.m. will feature readings by five authors. Adele Seronde will read poetry from her new book, “War on Two Worlds, Peace on One.” Tom Fleischner, along with contributors Melanie Bishop and Edie Dillon, will read from “Nature, Love, Medicine: Essays on Wildness and Wellness,” and Eveline Horelle Dailey will read an excerpt from “Let’s Go for a Short Walk.”

The opening reception is free and open to the public. Authors Seronde, Dailey and Fleischner will also be signing their books.

The space is graced with art by Adele Seronde and Jacques Cazaubon Seronde, sculpture by Dillon, and paintings and weavings by Dailey.

Bishop is a creative writing teacher and editor, and founder of the literary journal Alligator Juniper.

Dillon is a nationally exhibited sculptor, painter and environmental artist whose work seeks to honor the beauty and mystery of the world. Her large installation project, Yellow Dirt Testimony, showed at the Coconino Center for the Arts as part of the Hope and Trauma in a Poisoned Land exhibit bringing attention to the impacts of uranium mining on Navajo lands and people.

Born into a family of six generations of artists, Adele Seronde is a writer and painter whose work has been exhibited throughout the United States and in Italy. Her writing is included in seven books of poetry, and her children’s poetry is in many schools. Her first book of prose, “Our Sacred Garden: The Living Earth,” reflects her deep concern with the environmental crisis while speaking to experiences in community activism as a co-director of visual arts for Summerthing, Boston’s Neighborhood Arts Festival of 1968 to 1972, and later, in Sedona, as founder of Gardens for Humanity, promoting the integration of arts and gardening in schools, hospitals and city parks.

Seronde is working on her new book, “Pegasus: with Wings on Fire in Education,” using the ancient Greek myth as a metaphor for changes in America’s educational system.

Fleischner is a naturalist, conservation biologist, executive director of the Natural History Institute and faculty emeritus at Prescott College, where he taught interdisciplinary environmental studies for almost three decades. He edited “The Way of Natural History,” and authored “Singing Stone: A Natural History of the Escalante Canyons” and “Desert Wetlands,” as well as numerous professional articles. His new edited volume, “Nature, Love, Medicine: Essays on Wildness and Wellness,” was reviewed by Booklist from the American Library Association: “‘Nature, Love, Medicine’ is a beautiful collaboration that brings together diverse perspectives .... Each contributor’s love for the natural world is apparent and, more important, infectious. Readers will be inspired to renew their connection to the living world and attempt to rejuvenate their bodies and minds.”

Dailey was educated overseas in humanities and the arts, and studied and practiced commercial design in the United States. Her readers find French influencing her poetic prose. Published in journals and magazines, her books are read globally. She is a public speaker whose memoirs speak to the heart of humanity exposing what is left unspoken.

Design and art bring structure to her compositions. When not writing, Dailey can be found reading, weaving or painting. She is also a palliative care and eleventh-hour volunteer, offering assistance to those she serves.

Jacques Cazaubon Seronde studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Mass., and has been living and working in his homeland of Northern Arizona. Mixing drifting, landscape inspired abstraction with classical figure drawing and form representation and working primarily in oil paint, Cazo’s new work explores the relationship between the emotional understanding of a changing world and the natural landscape.

Other events planned during the exhibition include a poetry reading exploring the connection to nature with music from Jo B & Walton on Wednesday, Jan. 10, from 5 to 7 p.m., and a panel discussion co-hosted by Gardens for Humanity and the Natural History Institute investigating the latest information on the relationship between nature and healing on Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This exhibit will close Friday, Jan. 26, with a celebration and dance concert beginning at 7 p.m.

Join the Hub during this season of joy and creation for the opening of Healing Interconnections: Nature, Spirit, Art, an inspiring new art show, Sunday, Dec. 10, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Hub, at 525B Posse Ground Road. Visit sedonahub.org for details.

The Sedona International Film Festival presents the Northern Arizona premiere of the film “Bill Nye: Science Guy” showing Friday through Wednesday, Dec. 8 through 13, at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

Bill Nye is a man on a mission: To stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. The former star of the popular show “Bill Nye, the Science Guy” is now the CEO of The Planetary Society, an organization founded by Nye’s mentor, Carl Sagan, where he’s launching a solar propelled spacecraft into the cosmos and advocating for the importance of science, research and discovery in public life.

With intimate and exclusive access — as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy — this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution and a science-based worldview. The film features Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan and many others.

“Bill is a dream subject for a documentary. He is someone everybody knows of, but no one really knows — where did he come from, what were the experiences that formed his worldview, why is he so mission-driven?” said directors David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg. “Bill was absolutely open to every filming possibility we presented — an amazing leap of faith that allowed us to really get to know the man behind the bow tie.”

Critics are raving about “Bill Nye: Science Guy.”

“An engaging portrait of the man behind the lab coat.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Beguilingly absorbing! Thought-provoking.” — Variety

“An intelligent crowd-pleaser.” — RogerEbert.com

“Bill Nye: Science Guy” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Dec. 8 through 13. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday, Dec. 8, 10 and 12; and 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13.
