He will be at the Salt Lake downtown wall decor department on Friday, Oct. 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. And he will appear at ZCMI's Cottonwood Mall store during the same hours on Saturday, Oct. 13.

Collins is renowned nationally and internationally for his bold, impressionistic landscapes and subtle abstractions. He has painted the world, capturing landscape, mood and color in England, Ireland, Greece, Israel, Mexico, Tahiti and virtually all corners of the United States.Robert Redford, who has commissioned many of Collins' works, says, "Gary has the extraordinary gift of understanding nature and our place in it."
