Curtis Wade

Curtis Wade was born in 1979 in Sante Fe, New Mexico to a family of artists. His grandmother, Juan Dell was a sculptor, while his grandfather, Joe Wade, operated a successful gallery.

As a child, Wade was an avid painter and experimented with oils, pastels and acrylics. At the age of 13, Wade began lessons with his uncles Barry McCuan and Terry Wade, as well as his Aunt Arlene La Dell Hayes. By the age of 18, Wade had gained enough experience and training to sell his art professionally.

Trying to become autonomous and find his own style took Wade down many paths, leading him to experiment with a variety of mediums. Wades voice is impressionistic, bright and reminiscent of Van Gogh, although he also experiments with realism.

Wade is not only a studio artist, but also a plein air artist and often allows nature to renew and recharge his creative spirit. Wade spends his time between Sante Fe and San Antonio. He finds much inspiration painting on the grounds of Georgia OKeefe’s Ghost Ranch and finds inspiration at Black Mesa.

    An older friend of mine has acquired an artist study of two Indians dancing. She asked me to bring it to Santa Fe on our trip this weekend. Could you recommend a gallery here that might be familiar with Mr. Wade’s work? I would like to help her out. Shas been very ill and is a very sweet lady and is very excited about her find at an estate sale.

    Thank you,
    Tamra Newbern
