Malcolm Liepke was born in 1953 and raised in Minneapolis.
As a youth Liepke decided to attend the Art Center College in Los Angeles. His artistic aspirations encountered roadblocks there and he moved to New York to find the classical training he sought.
Well known, regarded, and collected as an oil painter, Liepke’s printmaking has broadened his market by providing original works on paper of his signature subject matter and drawing and color skill. Since 1979, Liepke has become a well-respected name in both the fine art and illustration fields.
His work has been exhibited by such prestigious organizations as The National Academy of Design, The American Watercolor Society, The National Arts Club, and the Hudson Valley Art Association.
His art has appeared on the covers of Time, Newsweek, Forbes, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated.
Dennis Sheehan was born in Boston in 1950. He has works in major public and private collections including the White House. Sheehan paints in the Barbizon mode with adherence to his 19th century precursors. In the tradition of the tonalist painters, Sheehan creates landscapes of mood, affected by nature’s changing seasons.

David P Curtis
Born in Brookline, Ma., in 1950. He was introduced to painting at an early age by his father, marine artist Roger W. Curtis, and took art classes from his uncle, Howard Curtis, while a student at Gloucester High School. He grew up surrounded by the painters — and paintings — of Cape Ann, an area noted for its artistic antecedents. During this period, Curtis also attended weekend classes at Massachusetts College of Art and received criticism from artist Ken Gore.
Graduating from high school, Curtis spent the summer of 1968 studying at the Boston Museum School, and in the fall attended Vesper George School of Art, Boston. In January 1969, he began working under Boston painter R.H. Ives Gammell and remained with him until June 1971. Curtis returned to Gammell in the latter part of 1974 and remained in the atelier until the following year. Curtis also studied part-time with Robert Douglas Hunter.
Curtis is a an artist member and past member of the Board of Managers of the Guild of Boston Artists, an artist member and past Chairman of the Arts and Exhibition Committee of the North Shore Arts Association, and an artist member and past President of Rockport Art Association.
Primarily an out-of-doors landscape painter, Curtis has won numerous awards for his work, including Yankee Magazine’s Robb Sagendorph Memorial Award (Copley Society of Boston), two A.T. Hibbard Memorial Awards for Landscape (RAA), two Frank Benson Awards (GBA) and two Marguerite Neuhauser Shafer Memorial Awards (NSAA). His work is shown and collected internationally, and he is listed in Who’s Who in the East.
Curtis has been instructing outdoor oil painting classes and workshops on Cape Ann, and throughout New England and Virginia, since 1993. He lives in Gloucester, MA.
