Arts on Grand is very excited to exhibit the works of Iowa painter Darren Maurer. He is a nationally acclaimed fine art painter drawing his inspiration from seeing the extraordinary within the ordinary. His attention to detail, skill, and brilliant use of color make this show sure to merit a few “oohs and awes” this July. Maurer’s work has been shown across the country and is included in collections in every state throughout the US and dozens of foreign countries.
He holds the unprecedented honor of winning six Iowa Duck Stamp competitions and two Iowa Ducks Unlimited Print of the Year titles since 2001. No other artist has won this prestigious competition more than three times in forty plus year history of the contest.
For the first time ever, this exhibit will have all six duck stamp paintings represented and both DU Prints of the Year.
Maurer’s work with Ducks Unlimited has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars going toward waterfowl conservation projects.
Darren’s exhibit will be open at Arts On Grand from July 2nd-August 18th. Join us for an artist reception on Thursday, July 12th from 6:30-8:00 PM. You won’t want to miss this one.
