Linda Glover Gooch was one of the 23 plein air artists participating in the 13th Annual Grand Canyon Celebration of Art. During a week in September the artists from around the country visited Grand Canyon National Park, painting plein air along the South Rim of the canyon. The artists faced the challenges the canyon presents to those who attempt to capture its beauty, its vastness, its depth, and its ever-changing light and weather patterns on canvas or on paper.

Glover Gooch, an artist from Mesa, Arizona, has participated in 12 of the Celebration of Art events. Known for her glorious rendering of clouds, Glover Gooch captures the beauty and the majesty of Grand Canyon sunsets against the depth and glory of the canyon.

All of the participating Celebration of Art artists submit a Grand Canyon themed studio painting prior to the event. Regarding her studio painting “Age to Age” Glover Gooch says:

“Sunsets at the canyon can be hypnotizing as the glow in the sky influence the majestic walls. The mesas and buttes edges catch the golden glow that spreads across the canyon creating a beautiful display. This display of clouds created sunrays blasting upward while blanketing the canyon with beauty.”

The work of these accomplished artists (both studio and plein air work) will be exhibited and available for purchase at Kolb Studio on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park through January 17, 2022 or online at:
