Kerrville resident Charlotte Curry will be the featured artist of the month at the Museum Of Western Art in June. Ms. Curry will exhibit twelve of her original oils that depict the beauty of the rugged Hill Country terrain.
Charlotte was born in San Antonio, Texas, where during her formative years she developed an intense love for the rugged Hill Country.
Charlotte has stated that as a little girl she remembers her family going on Sunday drives. Many of her paintings are from her memories of these scenes. Charlotte has sketched, photographed and painted across the Southwest but states she still loves painting the Texas Hill Country the most.
Charlotte works in oils, which she feels adds to the depth and richness achieved in her paintings. To create a painting, Charlotte will either paint on location, from sketches, combined reference photos, or purely from her imagination.
Over the years she has continued to challenge her skills and strives for excellence. In June of 2014 she was honored to be the artist of the month at the Museum Of Western Art in Kerrville,Texas. She’s participated in eight workshops at the Cowboy Artists of America Museum from William Moyers (2 times), Gary Carter, James Boren, Robert Pummill (2 times), Jack Swanson and the CA 10 workshop. She has also studied with Bob Wygant and Bill Zaner.
Charlotte has shown in juried shows, International juried competitions, one woman and group shows. Her works hang in private and corporate collections across the country.
