New Kolb show opens April 9

Paint the Parks, America's leading competition designed to illustrate the beauty and significance of America's national parks, opens at Kolb Studio with a free reception on Wednesday, April 9, 7-9 p.m.

Paintings in the competition must depict one of the 390 areas supervised by the National Park Service. The top 100 winning paintings are chosen to go on to a national touring exhibit. The competition's overall winner claims a $10,000 Grand Prize Purchase Award. Other artists in the competition also have an excellent chance to receive additional purchase awards, cash awards and prizes. The exhibit closes on May 15.

The Grand Canyon Association selected "Morning on the Colorado River" by Flagstaff artist Arline Tinus as its Grand Canyon award winner. This image is now part of the association's permanent art collection. Other paintings in the exhibit are also for sale with some of the proceeds going to Grand Canyon Association.
