The ASAA is dedicated to promoting and preserving our aviation and aerospace heritage through art.
It is with a very heavy heart that we report the news that longtime ASAA member Roy Grinnell has passed away. Roy has been such an inspiration to so many artists throughout his career, with both his aviation art and his western art. Aside from his artistic skills, Roy was a genuinely kind and humble man who was always willing to share his knowledge with others. A huge loss to the art community. Godspeed, Roy.
