Huntsville artist, Curtis Benzle, has been awarded one of only four Individual Artist Fellowships in the Visual Art and Craft categories by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.  In recognizing Mr. Benzle’s achievements, an ASCA representative noted, “The texture and colors used by Benzle shows mastery of the materials and his experimental signature style…… his long track record as an artist and educator are reasons he was selected to receive a fellowship.”

The Alabama State Council on the Arts was created in 1966 in order to enhance the quality of life and economic vitality for all Alabamians.   In responding to his Fellowship recognition, Mr. Benzle stated, “An ASCA Fellowship is both an honor and a responsibility”.  “I recognize that this honor was granted for my work as an artist AND an educator”.  “Information describing the ASCA Fellowship Grant, clearly states that an important selection criteria is “service to the state”.  Accordingly, I intend to use a significant portion of my Grant award to continue to develop and teach my “All Artists Making a Living”(AAMAL) program.”

Mr. Benzle continues, “AAMAL is a very practical course I developed many years ago and continue to refine”.  “The basic AAMAL approach is based on three aspects of virtually every successful art career—creating personal art, developing a product and teaching at the community level.”   “In twenty years of teaching this program I have seen positive affects ripple throughout entire communities as visual artists enthusiastically embrace the challenge of a fuller integration into their communities.  The “win” extends well beyond the artists”.

“Beyond the much appreciated, personal Fellowship recognition, I heartily accept the challenge as stated in the ASCA Mission,”…to enhance the quality of life and economic vitality for all Alabamians by providing support for the state’s diverse and rich artistic resources”, concludes Benzle.
