A Moment in Time
40 x 30 in.
The 12th annual Grand Canyon Celebration of Art will recognize the achievements of 23 artists who have successfully interpreted the canyon,
both in plein air and studio work.
During Plein Air at Grand Canyon from September 12-19, visitors can watch the artists at work painting at Grand Canyon National Park. Their work will be exhibited at Kolb Studio at the South Rim September 20, 2020 through January 18, 2021.
In addition to the plein air work the artists do during the event, they also submit
a studio painting for the event catalog. Of his studio painting A Moment in Time Arizona artist Robert Goldman says:
“For the artist, the Grand Canyon presents a uniquely dramatic geological and pictorial wonderland which contains all the elements necessary for a work of art.
Certain times of day such as dawn or dusk are the icing on the cake and can provide a truly sublime and compelling image which cannot be conveyed by a photograph. Such was the case with my painting A Moment in Time which depicts dramatic Yaki Point at sunset. I felt the need to add some shots of light on the cliff face, with the full moon ascending as the sun was setting.”
Goldman won PleinAir Magazine’s Best of Show award for the body of plein air work he completed during the 2019 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art.
On Saturday September 14th from 8:00am to 10:00am Goldman and the CoA artists will be participating in a Quick Draw along the South Rim with an auction of their work starting at 11:00am at Bright Angel Trailhead.
The Celebration of Art exhibit and sale opens at 11:00am on September 20, 2020, and will be open daily through January 18, 2021, at the historic Kolb Studio at the South Rim of Grand Canyon. Admission is free and open to the public.
