"Curran used her gallery space for “The Path,” an installation using light, bright colored glass, vibrant geometric and tribal paintings, all telling one story. She was inspired by a series of dreams about a turquoise beaded sash. The sash contains symbols that serve as the inspiration for the show. Walking around the room tells the story about how the “path” shares elements that are both uniquely individual and universally whole.
Curran uses her skills as an oil painter and a stained glass maker to construct more than 30 individual pieces, which are assembled together to create “The Path.” But it is also her skill in using the natural light in the room, reflecting or shining through the colored glass to “paint” on the floors and walls, which complements and enhances the experience."

"Mystery abounds in Kelly M. Curran’s submission of three elongated paintings, each featuring an exotic beauty, gazing off into the distance. “Born On A Daydream,” “New Moon Sage Woman” and “Here I Am Am I Here” all have a primitive style, reminiscent of Paul Gauguin, using a mixture of bright colors in the fabric of their gowns with the dark hues of their hair and faces in pensive expressions."
