Distinguished Gallery Director, Kirk A. Rudy, has been intimately involved with Curtis’ work since 1970. Mr. Rudy has lectured and organized exhibitions from Perth, Australia, the Far East, North America, and Western and Eastern Europe. Perhaps the largest exhibition took place at the prestigious Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland, where over twenty-five Journalists including major television crews covered this exciting event. The same European exhibition was boxed and shipped to the United States for exhibitions here.
The Edward S. Curtis Gallery is the oldest gallery devoted to the work of Mr. Curtis. We invite you to peruse through our newly redesigned web page. We have many things to offer you. Among the new additions, we will be adding voice interviews with the three grown children of Edward Curtis. The gallery conducted these personal interviews in October of 1980. Florence Curtis Graybill, Katherine “Billy” Curtis Ingram, the youngest daughter and their brother Hal shared deep insight into the life of their father. The Curtis children have since passed on and these interviews may be the last recorded accounts of Edward S. Curtis by those who were closest to him, his children. Be sure to visit our web page periodically to hear more about Mr. Curtis and his life as a photographer, artist and historian.
