About Curtis Speer: His gallery in Newport, RI, CUSP Gallery, named after artist and owner Curtis Speer's initials, embodies the essence of an "emerging" artist prepared for a transformative journey. The gallery's core mission revolves around providing emerging artists with a platform to exhibit their work and take bold creative strides. Curtis Speer's personal journey, marked by a pivotal experience in Provincetown, MA, led to the establishment of CUSP Gallery in 2017. From its inception, CUSP has been a beacon for artists seeking to showcase their talent, offering curated exhibitions and guidance in the exhibition process. Curtis's distinctive approach to his own art goes beyond the visual realm; it's about creating a tactile experience for his audience. His prints, crafted with meticulous attention to detail, invite viewers to engage intimately with his art. This connection between the viewer and the artwork blurs the lines between photography and painting, inviting contemplation and introspection. Over the years, his CUSP Gallery has grown into a dynamic space for this kind of artistic exploration, featuring themed group exhibits and forging partnerships with local artists and designers. This evolution has transformed CUSP into a vibrant hub for provocative visual art and public installations. As CUSP enters its eighth year, the gallery remains committed to nurturing emerging talents, exploring new possibilities, and pushing the boundaries of artistic expression.
