Story
Introduction

Curt Walters of Sedona, Arizona, is celebrated among fine art as the “greatest living Grand Canyon artist” "Master of the Grand Canyon" and One of "Eight True Masters." Best known for his impeccable Grand Canyon pieces, he is rapidly gaining acclaim for his international landscapes, as well. As a hands-on environmental activist, Walters is known to arrange incredible events involving other top artists, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars and, more importantly, awareness for the delicate state of our natural world.

The artist has won 13 major awards from four big shows since 1998, including 3 Nona Jean Hulsey Buyers' Choice Awards, an unprecedented back-to-back win of the Frederic Remington Painting Award in 2004 and 2005, and the highly coveted Prix de West Purchase Award from the Prix de West show in Oklahoma City, held at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. He received the Patrons' Choice Award from Artists of America in Denver in 1999, and took home the Patrons' Choice Award at Masters of the American West at the Autry National Center of the American West in Los Angeles; in 2008, he accepted the Trustees' Purchase Award. The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Indianapolis, has been equally kind, awarding him Best Overall Presentation, a Buyers' Choice, the Victor Higgins Work of Distinction, and the Artist of Distinction Awards during their Quest for the West expos. As the winner of the Artist of Distinction, the Paul Wing of the Eiteljorg will be host to a special 90 day, one man show featuring two decades worth of Walters' work, collected from various museums and private collections from across the country, to coincide with the September 11 opening of the 4th annual Quest show.

Walters' work is collected by Forbes Magazine Galleries, Grand Canyon National Park, Leanin' Tree Museum, Pierce Art Museum, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, astronaut Frank Borman, New Mexico State University, Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford, the Estate of Robert Urich, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and the Maytag Foundation, among others. His work can be found at the Trailside Galleries of Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jackson, Wyoming, and the Claggett/Rey Gallery in Vail, Colorado.
