Participating in this year's event will be Joshua Been, Amery Bohling, Bill Cramer, George Molnar, Marcia Molnar, Dave Santillanes, and newest member Cody DeLong. All these award-winning artists have a history of painting at the Grand Canyon, including at the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art held each fall at the South Rim. This festive alliance of painters all banned together after meeting there and discovering their common passion for art, "It was a mischievous week of rain, lightning, wind and fog but through it all, some great paintings came together as well as friendships." This year's exhibition at Mountain Trails will showcase new Grand Canyon paintings as well as other paintings inspired by their travels throughout Arizona and beyond.
"Our collectors and friends have been anticipating the return of the Grand Canyon 7 show and they are all looking forward to seeing new work by this talented group of artists. Each one spurs the other on to paint something special. This energetic alliance created some of the best paintings ever of the Grand Canyon as well as other subjects that intrigue and inspire," spoke Julie Williams, Director of Mountain Trails Galleries in Sedona. "It's a show not to be missed."
The Grand Canyon 7 exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on First Friday, April 4, from 5-8 p.m. Come enjoy libations and lively conversation with all of these inspiring artists.
