Murrays Cottage

A senior American artist with an impressive exhibiting history, Curtis Rhodes has just retired as Professor of Art at Michigan University, where he has taught since the late 1960s. Curtis, who works often in Arizona as well as the mid-west, describes himself as a "dreamer of places". His work is inspired by references to many cultures, ancient and contemporary, and by journeys both real and imaginary. He works across media - an expert printmaker, he also paints, draws and creates mixed media-works. Keen to continue developing works began during two weeks at Haefligers' Cottage in 2003, travels to Kings Canyon and Uluru Curtis is very excited to be returning to Australia
