Sedona AZ (April 23, 2015) – Sedona City Hall is currently featuring beautiful oil paintings created by artist David Haskell. The exhibit is on display in the Vultee Conference Room through the end of June. Please join us for the opportunity to meet and greet David and view his paintings on Tuesday, May 5 from 3 to 4 p.m. Haskell will discuss his work and be available for a question and answer period.
David Haskell is primarily a self-taught artist who began painting landscapes and seascapes while in high school. Although he worked his way through college as an illustrator, he chose a career in resource management with the National Park Service (NPS). He retired from the NPS in 1999 and since then has been painting full-time. David is also a founding member of the Arizona Plein Air Painters and has served two terms as the organization’s first president.
Even though David is best known for his dynamic paintings of the Grand Canyon and Sedona, he takes frequent painting expeditions to other locations including the mountains of Arizona and Colorado. While majestic, expansive scenes are often the subjects of his larger paintings, plein air and smaller studio paintings frequently feature creek scenes and fall color mountain landscapes.
If you would like to view this exhibit, please contact Nancy Lattanzi, Arts and Culture Coordinator, at 928-203-5078 or email NLattanzi@SedonaAZ.gov.
