Advancing the study and development of fine art in our community, and serving the needs of Glenview-area artists for more than 60 years.

Curtis Funke

I am a painter that works with oils and acrylics. I work in my studio in my home. I paint from photos for reference and have my own method of mixing colors and applying it to canvas. Most of my paintings contain a lot of detail. I use vibrant colors and capture light from the sun and other sources.

I am a graduate of RIT, with a major in packaging design. I  spent 45 years in the consumer products business working at International Paper, SaraLee, Alberto Culver, Corelle Brands, and Visual Pak as a designer. Now retired, I teach my four grand daughters art, and I also teach art at Total Link 2 Community. I can paint any subject including landscapes, seascapes, skylines, pets, people, portraits, and flowers. I gift many of my paintings to family, friends, and others. Anyone interested in a painting can contact me at
