Master Artist and longtime Sedona resident Curt Walters will be sharing a special symposium with community group The Sedona Women, known as “Dames Who Make a Difference.” Presented at the Sedona Creative Life Center on Wednesday, March 10th, “Curt Walters: The Man and His Art” will start at 10:00am and end at about noon.
Walters will discuss his struggles and triumphs through his career as a painter in his speech “Place and Moment” and reveal a few of his newest pieces to the group.
The artist is as in-demand for his skilled verbal presentations as are his stunning interpretations of the Grand Canyon, which are praised and collected globally. His symposiums often deal with Art History or the degrading air quality of the industrial age as captured through plein air paintings.
Cited as a Master Artist by many authorities, Walters has long been known as “The Greatest Living Grand Canyon Artist.” He has collected more than a dozen awards from Western Art’s “Big 3” expos, including the Prix de West Purchase Award, the Trustees’ Purchase Award at the Masters of the American West show, and the Artist of Distinction Award from Quest for the West.
Walters’ work can be found in the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, the Autry National Center of the American West in Los Angeles, The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis, The Forbes Magazine Galleries, Leanin’ Tree Museum in Boulder, the Pierce Art Museum in San Antonio and at the Grand Canyon National Park. His paintings are available at the Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and Jackson, Wyoming, at the Claggett/Rey Galleries in Vail, Colorado, and from his online gallery.
