Hi Bro. Ogundipe, Based on the response to join the BAIA site, I think we should let 'natural selection' take its course and invite other artists to join the dialog to participate in the ARTCURIAN vision. There was another group of artists added to the first 40. They could join as well. Let the entire Diaspora Be ARTCURIAN!!!

  Sister DeQuence,

 The Artcurian Artists were and are a group of 40 artists who exhibited "mural" sized canvasses at ARTC/URI in 2010 (see artcurian,org). This page is for those artists to show their work and talk about their experiences in the group. You are welcome to comment, but I didn't know that artists outside of the 40 could join without the approval of the Artcurian group.

I setup this page so that those 40 artists could expose their work to a wider audience like BAIA. Emmett Wigglesworth started this project when we were both A.I.R at ARTC/URI.  Since I was an organizer, teacher, carpenter and office manager for the Art Dept. at ARTC/URI, I didn't have time to create a painting for the exhibit. What I did do however,  I created a bust of the CEO and founder, Dr. Primm in 2 weeks, which he unveiled at the opening. Iam standing next to the clay model in the photo and the finished polyester resin bust is on my page.

 Thank you for your comments and I hope this clarifies what this group is about.

Greetings all, 

Just read the statement about Artcurian and its meaning.  "Speaking for the Spirits"  so speaks to me.  In so doing, I hope we give recognition to 3D/sculptural art as well as 2D paintings, drawings and sketches.  

Looking forward to more conversations and images.  

Now I'm off to see the Artcurian site: 

Have a great time with your work!

Condolences to the family and friends of, Sister Sonia L. Sadler who was a member of Artcurian Artists.

   May her artistic legacy and beautiful images be a shining beacon for all of us.

 I was only able to upload 4 images from the ARTCURIAN Artist exhibit "Artists Speaking for the Spirits", due to the limits of the site. 

  Please read the pdf in the info box for the history of the exhibit. You can go to to see all the paintings and info on the artists.
