The Grand Canyon Celebration of the Art, which runs from Sept. 10 through November 27, 2011, features the plein air talents of several Arizona Plein Air Painters, including President David Haskell, Vice President Cody DeLong, and members Gregory Hull, Raleigh Kinney, Robert Dalegowski, and Michael Chesley Johnson. The weather is finally beginning to cool, and what better reason do you need to take a road trip than a fantastic event like this?
"Thirty artists arrive and begin painting on Saturday, Sept 10, finishing up with a Quick Draw Event & Auction and Buyers' Preview and Awards Reception on Friday, Sept 16," says Michael Chesley Johnson. "See and purchase the artwork on display through Nov 27. Proceeds go towards our goal of creating a permanent art venue on the South Rim."
