Wellesley Society of Artists presents a demonstration by David P. Curtis on September 28, 2014 from 2-4pm at the Wellesley Community Center, 219 Washington Street, Wellesley Hills.
David P. Curtis was born in Brookline, MA, and grew up on Cape Ann, an area noted for its rich artistic history. Introduced to painting at an early age by his father, artist Roger W. Curtis, David attended weekend classes at Massachusetts College of Art. Curtis has studied at the Boston Museum School as well as the Vesper George School of Art, Boston. He has also worked with Boston painter R.H. Ives Gammell and studied part-time with Robert Douglas Hunter.
Curtis is an artist member and serves on the Board of Managers of the Guild of Boston Artists, an artist member and past Chairman of the Arts and Exhibition Committee of the North Shore Arts Association, and an artist member and past President of Rockport Art Association.
Primarily an out-of-doors landscape painter, Curtis has been instructing outdoor oil painting classes and workshops on Cape Ann since 1993. Even though he considers himself more of an impressionist than a painter of realism, his landscape paintings portray each season with the splendor of detailed strokes that form recognizable picturesque views.
The Wellesley Society of Artists (WSA) welcomes all to this free event. The WSA was founded in 1933 for the purpose of encouraging and supporting local artists.
