Three Generations Of Hurt Family Painters: Maury, Pete, Benj And Kinzer

With three generations of this talented Central Florida family, this first-time exhibition of all 4 family members together will introduce their works to an audience of new and old admirers and collectors.

January 28 – May 28, 2022

Opening Reception: Friday, January 28, 7 – 9 pm

Gallery Talk: 8 pm, Alice and William Jenkins Gallery

This is the first time all four family members’ works will be introduced together to an audience of new and old admirers and collectors. James “Maury” Hurt  (1934 to 2013)—considered a legend in Central Florida—had a very lengthy career as a painter with solo exhibitions throughout the state, including the Cornell and Mennello Museums, Orlando Museum of Art, and Maitland Art Center, which he helped preserve when it was called the Andre Smith Research Center. His work is included in hundreds of private and corporate collections, and he also mentored dozens of artists, some of who have gone on to have very successful careers of their own.

Maury‘s passion for painting inspired his brother William Kinzer “Pete” Hurt, Sr., (1935 to 2016), his son William Kinzer “Benj” Hurt, Jr. and his grandson, Kinzer Hurt. Maury studied art at the University of Florida, obtaining a fine arts degree, and within several years began making his living as a fine art painter. Pete, on the other hand, worked for 25 years in the business world before taking lessons from Maury. Five years later, he left the insurance business to pursue painting full time, which he was able to do for more than 20 years. Benj (William Kinzer Hurt, Jr.) began studying with Pete and Maury while in college and has enjoyed painting while maintaining his career in real estate. Kinzer, (William Kinzer Hurt III) genetically blessed, has had the discipline and talent to complete many works while finishing high school; winning the Student Division at the Maitland Rotary Art Festival in 2019. Kinzer attends Clemson University and is majoring in Landscape Architecture.

Curated by Barbara Tiffany, who was mentored by Maury Hurt in the 1980s, with works on loan from museums as well as private collections.
