About the Artist:
Cody DeLong from Cottonwood Arizona,, knows the Grand Canyon intimately,
having painted there for many years and from a variety of vantage points, including both the North and South Rims and the Colorado River. At the 2015 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art, he was honored by his fellow artists as the winner of the Artists’ Choice Award.
Speaking about “Around the Corner,” DeLong says: “This is a side canyon from one of my many rafting trips through the Grand Canyon. I love the little triangles of light in this scene. It just makes me want to hike farther and see what’s around the corner.”
As one of the 26 artists participating in the 8th annual Grand Canyon Celebration of Art, Delong will be painting the weekend of September 10th at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. He and fellow artist Mitch Baird will be doing a dual demonstration on the porch of the North Rim Lodge on Saturday, September 10th, from noon until 2pm.
Both artists will join the rest of the artists at the South Rim for the plein air event  taking place September 10-17, 2016, with the exhibit and sale of their work at Kolb Studio opening on September 18 and continuing through January 16, 2017. Proceeds from this event support the goal of funding a permanent art venue at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
