Phillip C. Curtis
One of my favorite galleries at the Phoenix Art Museum is the Phillip C Curtis Gallery. Curtis was the founding director of the Phoenix Arts Center which eventually became the Phoenix Art Museum. He was an artist inspired by the surrealist style and was sometimes called a “magical realist” or “the Magritte of the old west.” This painting is called “The Gift Bearers” and it was represented at the Arts & Flowers show by the arrangement next to the painting created by Nanette Holt.
