About Ray Roberts

Roberts devotes all of his time to painting; particularly desert, coastal, and other landscapes. He has attracted a growing audience of collectors with his style, believing that a point of view is the most important aspect of his love for painting. In 2000, Roberts won Best of Show at the American Impressionist Society's event.

Founded in 1999, the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation whose mission includes the preservation and maintenance of the Maynard Dixon home and property in Mt. Carmel, Utah. Built in 1939 by Dixon and his wife Edith Hamlin, the foundation has been instrumental in having this important historical Utah property placed on the National Register of Historic Places and as such will be included as one of the places to visit on historic Highway 89. Located near the important early Utah settlement of Orderville, the Dixon home and studio is an important destination for visiting artists wishing to partake of the beauty and spirit of Southern Utah where great painters and sculptors, writers and photographers have come for retreats and convivial inspiration for over sixty years.


We strongly believe in the importance of preserving this historical property, and the need for sharing it with other artists. We want to ensure that future generations will understand and benefit from everything we do at the Dixon property, which is why we continue to produce the Maynard Dixon Country event, host artist retreats, mount major shows for local artists, and host art workshops.

 All of the art listed can be purchased immediately by clicking on the artist's name which will take you to the available art. When you fill out the "Intent to Purchase" form you will be the guaranteed buyer. The foundation staff will contact you to arrange for payment
