April Artist of the Month – JOHN WEST
Regional Photographer, John West, lives along the Colorado River Corridor. As an adult, John lived in Southeastern Utah for over a decade before moving to Virginia, then West Virginia, on his “roundabout journey” to Grand Canyon National Park where he lived and worked full-time for 4 years (2004-2008 & seasonally since then). His “home base” is currently in Lake Havasu City, AZ which is along the Colorado River.
John spends many days per month carrying his camera gear while hiking or kayaking along smooth water sections of the Colorado River and area lakes in search for vistas, birds & wildlife to capture with his camera to subsequently share with others. John looks at the 3 river raft trips through the Grand Canyon as highlights in his endeavor to stay connected with nature. Additionally, at the Grand Canyon, John has been a guide, taking guests through the Kaibab National Forest viewing wildlife and visiting little-known Pictograph and Petroglyph panels; and, along the Rim of the Grand Canyon taking guests to prominent vistas for photo opportunities.
Recent publications include two birding brochures by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service: Bill Williams River National Wildlife Refuge’s “Birds” brochure; and Havasu National Wildlife Refuge’s “Birds” brochure. The 2013 calendar published by Arizona Game & Fish features John’s photo of “California Condors at the Grand Canyon” for its November 2013 calendar page. Prescott Audubon Society’s website has a trail publication which is comprised of bird photos donated by John. Five of John’s wildlife photos are on permanent display by the National Park Service at the recently dedicated “Colorado River Heritage and Greenway Trails Park” at Laughlin, NV.

February Artist of the Month – Jerry Lindsay
Local artist, Jerry Lindsay, has held a passionate interest in watercolor since his days in grade school. Though he majored in art in college, he was not able to pursue his interest until retirement in 2005. Page became his playground and many of his paintings portray the unmatched beauty that the area provides. He has held workshops for Glen Canyon Recreational Area, participated in the Artist in Park Program in the summer of 2012, and is currently presenting workshops at Coconino Community College.
Jerry participated in the Escalante Arts Festival in Utah where he received a purchase award for plein air painting, has been exhibited locally including the Friday Night Art Walk, and won first, second, and third place ribbons at the Coconino County Fair in 2012.
Arizona, and particularly Page, provide endless subject matter for Jerry. While he will be returning to his native upstate New York soon, his heart will remain in the beautiful Arizona where he has spent the last 43 years of his life. this exhibit is a humble “thank you” for the inspiration that Arizona will continue to give.
Join us Friday February 15th for an artists reception from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Powell Museum. The event is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
