All 11 artists shown here

Eleven artists — among them some of the most accomplished plein air painters in the nation —  took a rugged trip down the Colorado River and into the Grand Canyon in 2015. After blood, sweat, some tears, and a broken foot, their spectacular results will soon grace the walls of this gallery.

“The Grand Canyon on Canvas” is a magnificent display of creative and artistic mastery. Eleven artists — Dave Santillanes, Heather Burton, Susiehyer, Amery Bohling, Rosie Sandifer, Doug Braithwaite, Dennis Farris, Bill Cramer, Cody DeLong, Joshua Been, and Hai-Ou Hou — recently ventured down into the cavernous cliffs and jagged ravines of the Grand Canyon to capture the global landmark in all its majesty and glory.
