Curt Walters  (American, 1950) 

whitespace
Curt Walters (American, b.1950) is an American Impressionist, internationally renowned for his large-scale Grand Canyon paintings. Over decades of painting on location at the Canyon and bearing witness to its air pollution, Walters began campaigning for the conservation advocacy group Grand Canyon Trust, donating original paintings and arranging artist fund raising trips. To date, Walters has helped raise a half million dollars for his cause, and has since been named an honorary board member of the Grand Canyon Foundation, joining such dignitaries as Robert Redford and Senator John McCain. An Arizona resident who grew up in New Mexico, Walters attributes his fierce commitment to preserving the natural environment to his being part Cherokee and part Seneca Indian. While the dynamic landscapes of New Mexico and Arizona have long dictated his preferred choice of subject matter, Walters has also spent nearly 30 years capturing his impressions of the world’s landscapes; from Monet’s gardens at Giverny, to the magnificence of Florentine architecture and the exotic temple gardens of Bali. When he’s not on location, Walters participates in prestigious exhibitions such as Oklahoma City’s Prix de West, where his paintings have won numerous awards, including the Buyers Choice Award. He also was awarded the Frederic Remington Painting award for Apache Walls (2004). His Grand Canyon National Park commemorative work National Treasure (1994) has been recently reproduced on canvas by American Express for its International Masters Catalog of Fine Art. Famous collections of Walters’s paintings include Merv Griffin, Robert Urich, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Christopher Forbes, Kathie-Lee Gifford, and Kareem Abdul Jabar. Walters’s paintings can currently be seen in prominent public collections such as the Malcolm Forbes Collection and the collection of the Maytag Foundation.
