  9. Aaron Curry: From Texas Kid to International Art Star

    Aaron Curry is one of those exceptional artists who has stayed true to his own unique style while taking his career and work to the next level. So, how did the soft-spoken Texas kid grow up to become an internationally acclaimed art star?

    Mid career artists are often confronted with the creative challenge of maintaining their own unique style while exploring new ideas and concepts to take their career to the next level. At 41, Aaron Curry is an artist who finds himself in the middle of this period. Contrary to some of his contemporaries, he’s defying expectations by continually building on his early success - by showing impressive consistency and exploring new materials and mediums within his distinctive style rather than trying to reinvent himself and his art. Curry’s outdoor exhibition in New York’s Lincoln Center plaza late last year gave the artist well-deserved public exposure that could potentially be viewed as a breakthrough moment. The 14 piece show featured Curry’s trademark brightly colored abstract figurative sculptures.

  15. Springtime and Still Life 

    Flowers, books, seashells, postcards, animals, and marbles are just some of the items that have found their way into new still life paintings that are now on display at Susan Powell Fine Art during its annual Still Life Invitational. The show, taking place April 4 to 27, features 21 artists and, as gallery owner Susan Powell explains, "The painters explore the graceful beauty found in everyday simple or overlooked subjects as well as Trompe l’Oeils that play with the viewer’s perception of what’s real and what’s not."

    The essence of Spring, don’t miss this beautiful exhibition at Susan Powell Fine Art if happen to be near Madison, Connecticut.
