Cynthia MacCollum is a painter, printmaker, designer, and mother of two who lives and works in New Canaan, CT. Her work has been shown at such venues as the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT; The Avenue Gallery in Norwalk, CT; First Street Gallery in New York; and online at The Road Gallery. In April 2013, two of her prints were awarded First Prize in Works on Paper in the Spectrum show, the New Canaan Society for the Arts’ Annual Juried Exhibit. In June 2013, curator Donald Kuspit selected a piece by MacCollum—one of 32 works chosen from thousands of submissions—to be part of the First Street Gallery National Juried Exhibit in New York.
Inspired by a self-imposed practice of creating one small painting a day, MacCollum has expanded upon the themes and ideas generated therein to build new series of paintings and prints. Her most recent series, Continuum, examines the history of life on Earth within a geologic time frame.
