If you've ever wanted to own a piece of Candy Cummings one-of-a-kind art, now's your chance!
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind piece of art from Candy Cummings collection. Candy, a nationally acclaimed artist, was raised in Lexington Park and her dad was the owner of a local TV repair shop. Candy was intrigued by the TV tubes and the circuit boards that littered her father’s work area. Candy used those materials to create unique and unusual pieces of art. The collection includes TV tube sculptures as well as a Barbie collection. It also consists of many oil paintings and mixed media works. Candy’s work has received national recognition and has been displayed at theAmerican Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore. It was Candy’s wish before she passed away 3 years ago that her pieces be taken from display at various locations and made available to the general public at a discounted rate. These pieces will go quickly and they are expected to appreciate in value. The sale will last one day and the remaining pieces will be distributed in museums and galleries across the country. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity!
About the Artist Candy Cummings died on November 4, 2014 following a valiant battle with cancer.
Candy was a graduate of Philadelphia's Temple University: Tyler School of Art. Her passion for art began at a very young age with her first lessons starting in pre-school. Later in life she pursued art as a full time vocation. Among her many accomplishments, Candy had a show of her art work at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore and her work is part of their permanent collection. The majority of her working years were spent in the hospitality industry as a high profile, high end caterer working in Washington DC, the US Virgin Islands, and the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey.
Ten years ago, Candy established the Lexington Park Library Art Gallery for the purpose of featuring amateur, student, professional and children artists from the local area. The St. Mary's County Arts Council took over the management of the gallery in 2013.
Candy was a generous supporter of the Arts and the St. Mary's County Arts Council. She is missed but her legacy lives on through her art and her unending spirit.
