Collection: Matia, Walter

Walter Matia was educated at Williams College in Massachusetts, where he earned degrees in biology and art design. Upon graduation he worked in the exhibits department of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and The Nature Conservancy. He started his art studio, Curlew Castings, in 1984.

Matia possesses a vision of the world around him. His work is biographical; the subject matter is so much a part of his life that it is like a diary, personal art that comes straight from the heart.

Matia’s sculptures are exhibited at the prestigious Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum; Brookgreen Gardens; National Museum of Wildlife Art; Gilcrease Museum; Wichita Botanical Gardens; Cleveland Zoo and Cleveland Museum of Natural History; American Kennel Club Museum; the NFL Texans NRG Stadium, Houston; and Blair House, the guest house of the US president.

His works have been exhibited in shows across the country. He is a master signature member of the Society of Animal Artists, fellow of the National Sculpture Society, and master wildlife artist at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. He resides in Dickerson, Maryland, with his wife, daughter, son, Pip the Setter, and Tink the Lab.
