Artful Exploring!

August 24-October 31


Landscape paintings from the Colorado Plateau by George Callison, award-winning realistic landscape painter from Grand Junction.


Artful Exploring! celebrates curiosity and we humans are more curious than cats. George Callison notes: "I love the power of a canyonlands storm, the anticipation of adventure, the play of sun and shadow, the excitement of discovery, the patina of history, the enigma of clouds, and the surprise of color. My paintings sing the praises for exploration. As a landscape painter, I am fascinated by how light and shadow bring shape and color to the land."
