After an enduring and successful career as a scenic artist for such companies as the METROPOLITAN OPERA, the SAN FRANCISCO OPERA and BROADWAY, in addition to scenic design credits ranging from Broadway to Las Vegas, john jason phillips has realized a long-held dream of being a working Santa Fe artist. Now instead of creating paintings of gargantuan size – 20-30 feet tall by 60 feet wide and more – Mr. phillips is applying his rich experience to paintings in the 20" x 30" range of dazzling watercolor.
In his show Legends, phillips shows 16 new works, putting a different eye to legends of the West – the Anasazi, the American Hero and Outlaw, and all the way to the legend of the silver screen – Marilyn Monroe. In between are musings about the 'right stuff' that made America great.
