This year’s Grand Canyon Celebration of Art will take place September 8-15, 2018. Watch and learn from plein air painters @grand_canyon_association . . LYN BOYER Continuance (Oil) 24 x 44 inches . "The persistence of the ages. The uplift of the great Colorado Plateau. The turning of the Earth on its axis bringing dawn after dawn. With infinite patience over the arc of time, water moved earth and rock to carve this wonder. Sitting on its rim, absorbing its quiet, the rush of time begins to move in slow motion and I become very small. When I become small, problems too become small and are swallowed up by the vast miracle of the Grand Canyon." .

2018 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art will take place Sept. 8-15. Watch and learn from plein air painters @grand_canyon_association . . JOHN D. COGAN Shadow and Showers (Acrylic) 48 x 36 inches . "The Grand Canyon is not only about geology and the Colorado River, it is also about the atmosphere and its weather. Even on a perfectly clear day, the sky sneaks down into the canyon, causing the far walls to turn lighter and bluer. As the sun rises or sets, its enflamed disk paints the temples and buttes multi-shades of orange and red. And when the storms come, the rains sink below the horizon and the shadows of clouds float over the land, enveloping the canyon in mist and mystery." . [Image description: a painting showing large monsoon storm clouds over a colorful canyon landscape of buttes and cliffs.]

With lots of smoke filtering into Grand Canyon from wildfires on the North Rim and from California, our thoughts go out to our park friends to the west. Lassen Volcanic National Park, Glacier National Park, Crater Lake National Park, Whiskeytown National Recreational Area, Yosemite National Park, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and others, stay safe and keep doing good work. -ms [Image description: Two photos, 1)four people looking out over a smoky Grand Canyon, 2) a wide view of the canyon filled with smoke and a group of people taking photos from a viewpoint in the lower right.] (Photos from Yavapai Point on the South Rim 08/13/2018 NPS/M.

“I climb up the granite to its summit, and go away back over the rust colored sandstones and greenish yellow shales. I climb so high that the men and boats are lost in the black depths below, and the dashing river is a rippling brook; and still there is more canyon above then below. All about me are interesting geological records. The book is open, and I can read as I run.” — John Wesley Powell, August 18, 1869. (NPS/Jake Frank) .

MICK McGINTY Streaming Light (Oil) 22 x 28 inches "My main motivation in creating this piece was to explore the raking light that hits the canyon every evening. You rarely get the light to hit the objects you want and not the objects you don’t want, so in this piece I added the streams of light to a scene where the sun had already set. It became a horizontal design of light streaming across the scene, picking up certain shapes and shadowing others." . .

JAMES McGREW Canyon Dancer (Oil) 20 x 24 inches "Although probably best known for its sublime beauty and outstanding natural wonders, Grand Canyon National Park also hosts a rich Native American cultural history.

JIM WODARK Sun Kissed (Oil) 30 x 40 inches . "I was up early at Yaki Point and the sun started rising. Just kissing the faces of several formations. The contrast of the glorious bright light against the deep dark shadows in the Canyon were irresistible to me! I took several photos and also painted a small plein air piece. Back in my studio I tried to communicate the incredible beauty that I witnessed that morning." .

Today, DAWN SUTHERLAND Heart of the Canyon (Oil) 30 x 20 inches. . "Soaring hazy heights and vertigo descents Sing to the hearts of those the Canyon chooses. “Return to me and find what’s hidden for you this time.” Redbuds’ lavender blossoms of spring on sun-warmed trails, Scarlet monkey flowers tucked into summer seeps, Cottonwood leaves’ polite applause in the autumn breeze and the hum of honeybees sporting leggings of chamisa’s golden pollen, bellies heavy with nectar. And rainbow glint of winter sun on ravens’ iridescent wings. The Canyon sings a siren song enticing canyon hearts to sing along." .

This year, the 10-year anniversary of Grand Canyon Association’s Celebration of Art, and my 10th year participating, I intend to hike from the North Rim to the South Rim, carrying a tiny travel easel and many small panels in order to share the experience with those that wish to see those inner canyon views as depicted by an adoring fan— yours truly! This body of work will be displayed in a polyptich frame with a centerpiece as seen here.” @joshuabeen .

ELIZABETH BLACK - Rowdy Redwall Ravens (Oil) 30 x 30 inches . Redwall Cavern, like other popular stops on a river trip, supports a resident raven family who both harass and entertain river-runners. Ravens supplement their diet of insects, rodents, and lizards with human food and bars of soap (their favorite). They unzip backpack pockets to steal goodies and carry entire sandwiches away in their beaks. Highly intelligent and loyal, they hold grudges against people who have hurt them, use tools to obtain food, and remember locations of their many food caches for months. Watch for teenage raven gangs playing on thermals along the canyon rim, challenging each other with amazing acrobatic feats. .
