Curt Walters Returns to Eiteljorg for Quest for the West, 2011

Breaking Surf: Point LobosAmerican Master Artist Curt Walters will make his sixth appearance at the 2011 Quest for the West art show, held at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana. The opening sale weekend begins September 9th.

A favorite among judges and art fans, Walters has won five awards in the show’s previous five years, including the Artist of Distinction Award. This award led to a special one-man show of Walters’ works in 2009, which featured dozens of original pieces borrowed from collectors and museums all over the country.

Walters has collected eight patron/buyers choice awards from such prestigious shows as Quest for the West, Prix de West, Masters of the American West, The Salmagundi Club’s American Masters show and Artists of America, held in Denver, Colorado.

Other honors include the Prix de West Purchase Award in 2007 and the Trustees’ Purchase Award from the Masters of the American West show at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles in 2008.

This year, the artist will feature “Breaking Surf: Point Lobos,” a 24″ x 36″ oil painting that captures nature’s rugged power and beauty along the California coastline.

Both “On the Trail to Maricopa,” 14″ x 14″, and “Centurion of Desert View,” 12″ x 12″, give Walters’ unique perspective on the Grand Canyon. He has been known as the “Greatest Living Grand Canyon Artist” since 1997.

Walters will also be a featured artist at The West Select show this October, held at the Phoenix Art Museum. This December, Nedra Metteucci at Forbes Magazine Gallery will present Walters and John & Terri Moyers in a special three-person show in New York, titled “A Painting Journey to France and Spain.” Contact Nedra Matteucci Galleries at 505.982.4631 or visit this page for more information.
