The wonderful wacky world of Mel McCuddin at Art Spirit Gallery Sept 11
At 82 years of age, artist Mel McCuddin has a growing fan club, (and I am a member.) Collectors small and large swoon over the work of this humble, soft-spoken figurative oil painter from Millwood, Washington. And he isn't slowing down. For his September show at The Art Spirit Gallery, he will fill the walls - floor to ceiling - with new work that engages and entertains all audiences.
McCuddin is well known for his exceptionally unconventional subjects that are curiously realistic yet abstract. These subjects are not predetermined but discovered on the canvas during the process. A hint of an image sparks inspiration, a unique idea develops, and the narrative unfolds.
Over forty new paintings will be exhibited during his upcoming show at The Art Spirit Gallery from September 11 through October 2. The opening reception is on Friday, September 11. Images of McCuddin's work can be found on the gallery's website at
theartspiritgallery.com. The exhibition of McCuddin's new work will be on the website by September 1.
