Featured Artist – American Impressionist Alan H. Curtis

Alan H. Curtis, Tucson area resident, is best known for his “plein air” style of impressionism. His paintings capture the beauty of the American scene, from the dynamic landforms of the desert to waterlily-filled ponds of Eastern Massachusetts and the golden hills of Northern California. Curtis has spent his life recording on canvas the scenes, people, and places most important to him.

Among the recordings are paintings of his six children. His current studio is in Northwest Tucson.

In his own words, an artist should be more than a painter. “An artist should build boats, be able to fix cars, create beautiful gardens, cook delicious meals, bake homemade breads, and whip out an occasional masterpiece.”

Alan Curtis’ studio gallery is open for private showings only.

Curtis’ work, which has been featured in American Art Review magazine, holds a unique ability to capture both subtle and dramatic emotions. His paintings and prints reflect his talent for capturing diverse American themes, such as a hot eggs-and-bacon breakfasts, dramatic Southwest landscapes, California’s blooming hillsides, and the flower harvesters of Half Moon Bay.

Roy P. Drachman Agua Caliente Regional Park – A Tucson Favorite

The Roy P. Drachman Agua Caliente Regional Park (in east Tucson) is a great place to walk, bird watch, picnic or have your family portrait taken. We were out there today, and people were doing just that.

The historic ranch house was open and had an art show, with all of the artwork having bird themes, from various Tucson artists.
