T. J. Cunningham featured this month at Edgewater Gallery
TJ Cunningham, a native of Cambridge, Vt., maintains a studio in Addison where he paints. He is the featured artist on exhibit at Edgewater Gallery on the Green in Middlebury this October. An opening reception with wine and light bites for “TJ Cunningham: At The River” will take place at the gallery on Friday, Oct. 13, 5-7 p.m. The following Saturday, Oct. 14, Cunningham will do a painting demonstration from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
“Last year as I began to put a new body of work together, I decided to focus on the river as my narrowed scope of study,” Cunningham explained. “Over the last year many hours were spent painting at the river and the new work is a compilation of larger studio pieces and smaller paintings that were created directly from life. The smaller paintings along with many sketches and studies were the guiding inspiration for the larger studio pieces.”
Cunningham credits his upbringing in the Vermont countryside as the catalyst for his love of the natural world.
“I was drawn to focus on the river partly because of its serene aesthetic, but also because of all of the good memories of adventure, solace, romance, and childhood bliss that its banks hold,” said Cunningham, a graduate of Pensacola Christian College. “I have only touched the surface of this delightfully deep motif. Still it is my hope that I will be able to conjure the river in its beauty and energy to those who view this new body of work.”
