In his current yearly exhibition which he calls “Arizona High” Plein-air artist Greg Heil chose to focus on some favorite locations in Arizona’s higher elevations . Explains Heil, “I’d like to share some of my own favorite destinations which some people may not know in the hopes these areas might be experienced.”
Deftly using brushes, oil paints and his magical color sense, Greg Heil provides a lovely introduction to places many of us have never been including Canyon de Chelly, Vermillion Cliffs, and historic Arizona sites. Another highlight is Peach Springs at the floor of the Grand Canyon, and center of the Havasupai Nation where photo opts abound.
The one man show begins with an artist’s reception on Friday, June 5 from 5-8 P.M. and will be held at James Ratliff Gallery, Hillside Sedona. Greg will give a short talk at 6 pm.
