2011 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art

I'm delighted to announce that I have been juried into the prestigious 2011 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art.  As with the last two years, it incorporates a plein air painting event along the Grand Canyon's South Rim.   For more, visit

Here's an abbreviated list of the events:

September 10- 15 – Artists paint on site. Free daily artist presentations at Mather  Point Amphitheater.
September 15 All artists paint along rim between Mather Point and Kolb Studio. 
September 16 Quick Draw event and auction – North Lawn of the El Tovar Hotel
September 16 Buyer’s Preview and Awards Reception 
September 17 Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony (morning) – Kolb  Studio
Exhibition & Sale through November 27, 2011

The full list of invited and juried artists will be out soon.

By the way, I still have a couple of spaces in my Grand Canyon workshop, April 26-29.  It is $250 for four full days.  Contact me right away if you're interested -    Lodging options are fast filling up for that time period. For full information, visit 

I also still have spaces in my Sedona workshops for this winter and spring.  But time is running out!  Visit
