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.
