Bronwyn Curtis is a local artist who was born in California and raised in Hancock, NY. Her first artistic endeavors began in elementary school and grew into a passion while in high school. This eventually led to her receiving her formal education in studio art and advertising design from Cazenovia College in upstate NY. After graduation Bronwyn returned home and began a career as a graphic designer, while maintaining her passion for the fine arts from afar until recentlly. Bronwyn’s work interprets the graceful individuality of nature’s forms, from the calm of a quiet countryside to the vibrating energy of a busy cityscape. her defining style is impressionism which she uses to encapsulate her perceptions of the beauty in the world. Drawing inspiration from the great French impressionists of late, Bronwyn created emotion with each visible brush stroke and movement through every layer of color. Bronwyn currently resides in Preston Park, PA with her husband, Kevin.
Geoffrey Fowler – “I am a native of Honesdale and earned a Bachelor of Fine Art at Kutztown University. I returned to the area to work for a local family business and to raise a family. I’ve lived and continue to live a very active lifestyle, which I believe mirrors my artwork. I also coach for Honesdale High School Boys Soccer.
My small abstract impressionistic paintings are about grasping nature’s uninterrupted movement that exists all around us. It is my attempt to expose this visible and invisible energy. I choose to work on a small scale, so as to draw the viewer into an intimate space. I think the experience becomes more personal and also can be taken in with one glance. But hoping many glances will produce a long lasting image in the viewer’s mind. I push and pull many layers of pastels and paints and gesso on paper, sanding between each layer. The slow process becomes very meditative. My influences are many: Charles Burchfield, Agnes martin, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alexander Calder, and Joan Mitchell to name just a few. – ——.Geoffrey Fowler.
