"Splendor of Nature...In Pastels" by Faith Cuda

Art Central Gallery's September Exhibition is by Faith Cuda.  It is entitled, "Splendor of Pastels".  Meet the artist at a reception on Third Thursday, September 21, 2017 5-8 pm.

It’s fair to say that Faith is excited about her work: "I'm passionate about pastels and this exhibit of my newest art is just the beginning of a grand adventure into this exquisite medium.  Because pastels are a blend of finely ground pigment with a minimal binder, they maintain their brilliance and vibrancy.”

The artist continues, “I chose the wonder of nature to display my new found love of pastels. From landscapes, to water scenes and even a fruit still life, we can all enjoy the wonders of the earth and what it produces.”

In this artist’s hands, nature whispers of a pathway in the forest that beckons us "Around the Bend" and to the stillness of "A Boat Docked" at sunset.

According to Alfred Billings Street, "Nature is man's teacher.  She unfolds her treasures to his search, unseals his eyes, illumes his mind, and purifies his heart; an influence breathes from all the sights and sounds of her existence."

Faith Cuda has felt the sway of Street’s words in "Splendor of Pastels!"  The show will be featured at Art Central Gallery, 130 Central Avenue, Summerville, SC through September 2017. Visit the gallery Monday-Friday, 10-5 and Saturday 9-4 to see these paintings and more of the artist’s work.  Information about Faith’s art can be found at
