Gareth Curtiss Artist/Bronze Sculptor

In November 2012 I met with Gareth at his studio near Shelton, WA. I have known about his work for years, but this summer I had the chance to meet him along the Olympia waterfront and tell him about my journey to replicate Puget's Route. As a sailor Gareth showed alot of interest in this history. At the time I was already birthing a memorial project in the back of my mind so it didn't take me long to ask him if he was interested. He has done numerous Lewis and Clark and military projects. Click on link at bottom of blog to see more of his projects.
