Provincetown artist Curtis Speer announces summer gallery dates

Provincetown-based artist Curtis Speer will be opening his new art gallery, Cusp Gallery, on May 7th!

Along with the opening, Curtis has unveiled a list of exhibitions and book signings that will go on throughout the summer months. On July 15, during Provincetown Bear Week, he will be hosting a Reception and Book Signing, so get over to the Cusp Gallery to see some amazing work by a beary talented and woofy artist! 

When speaking of his work, technique and background, Curtis states:  

“Seeing things from at least two perspectives would lead me to continue to create bodies of work that play with the mind and the eyes. Using Light as my main subject, I am able to capture the subtleties of life, death, color, contrast, texture and emotion. With a full college scholarship for drawing, I was taught to develop my own perspective which would later apply to my life as an artist using a camera. My work is a result of continued hard work and perseverance. Working with designers along the west coast and firms in New York, I never cease to get inspired by the people around me.”

“I would consider myself an artist that uses a camera, as opposed to a photographer,” he goes on to say. “Visual Storytelling is the focus of my work, since ‘anyone can take a picture these days,’ as it was explained to me by a gallery in the Pacific Northwest. Changing perspectives is something I continue to open myself up to in regards to conversations, processes and moreover, my artistic approach.”

He concludes: “Photographs which take on the nature of a painting tend to create dialogue with me and the viewer. My technique generally expresses a sensuality about whatever subject I capture; my work is visual, tactile, aural…and in some cases, what can be smelled and tasted. One cannot fully experience any work of art (visual, musical, or performing) without using most, if not all, of the senses through our visual, aural, tactile, and olfactory capacities.”
