The 9th Annual Quest for the West Show and Sale at Eiteljorg
September 5th through 7th
This year, Curt will not be in attendance but wishes he could join colleagues and friends in Indianapolis at the Eiteljorg Museum, but he will have a presence.
Submitted to this year’s show is the breathtaking “Perchance for Eons“, an 18″ x 18” view of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon, perchance for eons in creation, is the widest and deepest of its kind. “It has never disappointed me,” Curt said, continuing with “Every visit and every painting has its own unique story.” In this painting the erosion of an early November rain intensifies the color, all richly dark and wet. Cheops Temple and the Buddha Complex glisten in a moment of late evening light.
The second of Curt’s paintings for this show is “August Morning at Rain God Mesa.” This 14″ x 14″ view of Rain God Mesa at Monument Valley captures the morning sky of the monsoon season. Curt captured a small patchwork of clouds before building to the thunderheads of the afternoon.
Events at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana kick off on Friday with the Western Art Open House tour and a Cocktail reception. Saturday patrons will enjoy the official reception, drawing and art sale and follow with the annual awards ceremony. Sunday will conclude the weekend with a continental breakfast and the gallery will open to the public. Artwork from the show will be on display until October 5th.
