David Curtis does Hibbard walk

David Curtis, second generation renowned plein air artist from Rockport, gave an exciting and very informative walk Sunday at Rockport Art Association, mostly his students were in attendance as it wasn't a planned activity for the public.  David's father, Roger Curtis, was a friend and dealer for A.T.Hibbard's work for a while, and David tagged along with his father and asked Aldro questions for which he received answers  that were short.  Having read two books on Hibbard this month, it seems that the artist didn't talk much about art considering it a private occupation but was more than happy to talk baseball.  David's wife, Judith Curtis, an author of several books on art, has written a book to accompany this show.  Most of the 119 paintings present at this amazing show are shown in this book.  David was on the organizing committee of this show and has done a wonderful job of lining up talent to do walks and talks.  Be sure to see this show up until November 11th.
