He has exhibited in numerous galleries and museums including Yard Dog Gallery (Austin, TX), Rosenfeld Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), Perry Milou Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), Alysia Duckler Gallery (Portland, OR), 1300 Gallery (Cleveland, OH), Omaha Center For Contemporary Art (Omaha NE), ARTEXPO at the Javits Center (NY, NY), Cleveland International Airport (Cleveland, OH), and at the Woolsan Cultural Art Center (South Korea). Most recently he had a solo exhibition at the Shoom Gallery in St. Petersburg, Russia.
I was born and raised in a small town in central Pennsylvania where the landscape, seasons, and wildlife profoundly influenced who I am and what I do. These elements possess infinite mood, and are ever changing in feel, look and sound. By the time I graduated from college in 1995 I was painting every day. Painting, like everything else has few absolutes – dead right can be dead wrong, beautiful can be grotesque, stupid can be sublime, and funny can be terrifying – all at the same time. My paintings don’t represent anything, they are themselves – the way a song is a song and the sky is the sky.

kurt really has some great talent and his mugshot ideas are off the wall and really convey the humor he is trying to show. I have been to many of his shows and love all the different types of media he uses and varying series he produces. Despite being an amazing artist he is a great guy and deserves any recognition he recieves.
