THE ARTIST Curt Walters
BEST KNOWN FOR Impressionistic, light-filled interpretations of Southwestern landscapes, especially Arizona’s Grand Canyon.
GLOBAL INSPIRATION The native New Mexican and Sedona, Arizona, resident may be known as the master of the Grand Canyon, but his inaugural exhibition at Santa Fe’s Nedra Matteucci Galleries showcased just how far the plein aire artist has journeyed in search of new landscapes: Italy, England, Prague, Petra and even Niagara Falls.
PAINTINGS WITH PURPOSE A long partnership with the Grand Canyon Trust, an organization devoted to defending the Colorado Plateau against the pollution Walters inadvertently captured in some of his paintings, has earned the artist the title “Official Artist of the Grand Canyon Trust.”
