Walters to Visit Salmagundi Club

Overture to TwilightMaster landscape artist Curt Walters of Sedona, Arizona, will be a part of the third annual American Masters Fine Art Show & Sale held at the exclusive Salmagundi Club in New York City May 5 – 16, 2010.

Walters will be in attendance, displaying two new pieces in the show, which benefits The Salmagundi Club.

Long regarded as the “Master of the Grand Canyon,” Walters’ first piece, “Overture to Twilight,” is a 28″ x 22″ view of the National Park from the trail to Maricopa Point, as a late light dapples the landscape through the clouds. The second is “Above Borum Lake” (10″ x 12″), painted on location in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming.
