Linda Glover Gooch, 2017
The 9th annual Grand Canyon Celebration of Art will feature 25 artists painting plein air at the Grand Canyon September 9-16, 2017, with an exhibit and sale of their work opening at Kolb Studio on the South Rim on September 17. Each of the participating artists creates a studio painting for the exhibit, which hang in the exhibit along with the plein air work they paint during the event. The exhibit and sale will be open daily through January 15, 2018.
This year the event is celebrating the women artists—both historic and contemporary–who have taken on the unique challenges of capturing the splendor and vastness of the Grand Canyon on canvas. Nine of this year’s artists are women.
Our featured artist, Linda Glover Gooch of Mesa, Arizona, has participated in the Celebration of Art for 8 years. She has spent countless hours painting the canyon, both on her own and sharing her skills with students during a number of workshops co-sponsored by Scottsdale Artists School.
Of her studio painting this year, The Edge of Time, Glover Gooch notes:
“Each day at the Grand Canyon brings on new and beautiful scenes as well as many visitors from around the world. It seemed right to include them in this view
of Maricopa Point as the visitors perch themselves along the rim, Taking the time to stop, they absorb the beauty of the canyon with its majestic views and the billowing cloud formations that take center stage.”
