Luce Artist Talk: Erin Curtis
October 22, 2015

The Luce Foundation Center welcomes artist Erin Curtis on Sunday, October 25th, starting at 1 p.m. for our latest Luce Artist Talk.


Curtis will be talking about Miriam Shapiro's Dollhouse as a source for her inspiration.

Known for implementing a combination of shapes and patterns to create energetic paintings, Curtis has developed her artistic style from years of travel. Curtis draws inspiration from her experiences living in places as varied as Vermont, Texas and India. Now her artworks can now be seen here in D.C. This past spring and summer, Curtis's work was displayed throughout Washington as a part of Designed to Recycle, a public art project that used recycling trucks as a mobile canvas for Curtis' colorful creations.

Her paintings' combination of color, shape, and pattern is given additional depth through her technique of layering perforated canvases in order to combine several layers of brightly colored patterns that begin to balance the line between painting and textile.

On Sunday, October 25th, Curtis will be at the Luce Foundation Center to discuss her artistic methods along with the sources of her inspiration. She will discuss objects from the Luce Foundation Center's collection, including Miriam Schapiro's Dollhouse.

The talk will begin at 1:30 p.m. Beverages will be served until 3:30 p.m. Curtis' work will be on display at our neighbor Flashpoint Gallery from October 24 through November 21, 2015.
