Earth and Fire Gallery

We are pleased to welcome to the Gallery, our Guest Artist, Richard D. Curtin.

" Inspired by the austere landscape, this city boy is mesmerized by the west Texas wide-open spaces and the shapes the sun creates by bathing the objects below, even the clouds cast shadows! The mountains miles away or the cactus at my feet, the inspiration for my painting is right in front of me.

 Having graduated with a BFA from Auburn University and after a very successful entertainment career, I return to my passion of painting and earned an MA from Sul Ross State University in my semi-retirement in my new home of Alpine, Texas.  Reigniting my passion and artistic style with an emphasis on the landscape, its inhabitants and its manmade elements telling stories of how we coexist with nature and its beauty.

 Like the cow in the desert, I am so happy in my new environment under the huge sky enjoying the sun, the clouds during the day and the abundance of stars at night.  What I see around me keeps me looking up, smiling and painting."

THANKS, Brewster County for Shots in Arms! Great start!

Thank you all for coming out to the town hall meeting on Saturday to learn about dark sky efforts in the Big Bend. It was really positive and I appreciated the opportunity to hear everyone's perspectives, I learned a lot.  Over the next several months, if things continue to improve with the pandemic, I am going to slowly start reviving the Terlingua Dark Sky Alliance (part of Big Bend Citizen's Alliance). The town hall was a great start and lets me know that the community is behind this initiative.

For starters, here is the link to the International Dark Sky Association website.  https://www.darksky.org/

- As we discussed, you will find printable brochures under the Resources tab. You can print them yourselves or they will send out free brochures if you ask.  

Thanks again and it was great to see so many faces in person!

Let me know if you have any questions.
