Vermont artist, Tim Cunningham is having a show of his new paintings, Winterworks at The Art House in Middlebury.

TIm had his first show after graduating from college last spring. Local art lovers were charmed and surprised that one so young could display such mastery of the discipline. He has been diligently at work over this past year, creating more wonderful paintings. Some may remember that he used the proceeds from his first show to buy an engagement ring for his intended. They will be married this June.

Tim Cunningham grew up in Addison, Vermont. His love of the Vermont landscape is evident in all his plein aire paintings. He works quickly and can finish a painting on site or bring it back to his studio to complete the painting from memory and photographs. This show focuses on the paintings he has completed over this past winter.

Tim has been able to support himself over the winter through commissioned portraits. He is learning the business of how to be a professional artist. The show that he had last summer continues to bring interested people who want him to paint portraits of family, of their homes, properties or favorite landscapes.

Tim says his inspiration as an artist comes from "painting people from life". His sensitive and masterful portrayal of his subjects reveals the truth of that statement.

His work will be featured in the 82nd Annual Members' Exhibition at the Souther Vermont Art Center.

Please stop by the Art House for the opening reception or any time over the next two months to give yourself a treat and witness Tim's art for yourself! The Art House Gallery is open Tuesday - Friday from 2:00 to 6pm and on Saturdays from Noon to 3:00
