Val Curry - Artist Interview

Val Curry grew up amidst the cornfields of rural Illinois in an Intentional Community. The community was developed largely by a volunteer effort of like-minded people to practice experimental sustainable and philosophical lifestyles. This upbringing surrounded by strong social cohesion, teamwork and an alternative lifestyle greatly impacted Val’s core values and art-making practice.
Curry studied under prominent Dallas gallery director and artist, Randall Garrett at Richland Community College. In 2012 he was an artist in residence at UTD CentralTrak. He has a BFA in Sculpture from Texas A&M University, Commerce and received his MFA from the University of Texas at Dallas in the Arts and Technology program.
Curry’s mission is to bring practical idealism to his art practice and to share that message with others through unique workshops and teaching experiences. His inspiration is from Nature and approaches that through his own self-directed “intuitive science”. He is represented by Ro2 Art in Dallas.
