Statement

Curator of exhibits and historic interpreter at the Vander Ende-Onderdonk House (Ridgewood, NY), Arthur Kirmss is also an accomplished artist and musician. His sculpture, paintings, jewelry, engravings and wood carvings can be found in many public and private collections, and he has written and published numerous articles on primitive shell bead making, wampum, and other subjects of historic and artistic interest. Arthur holds a BFA from Pratt Institute, completed graduate studies in drawing and design at the University of Guadalajara, Colegio Cervantes, Mexico, and earned an MFA in sculpture and print making from the University of Arizona at Tucson. Arthur is also founding member and performer in two musical ensembles: Dolcy Jones, a vocal quartet specializing in rare historic American music of the colonial through Civil War eras; and Courante, a duo of recorders and harp that perform music written through the early Baroque era.
