Art Exhibition for talented artist, Cyndi Thau
- This event has passed.
The Gallery at Rio Carrabelle is excited to present a delightful art exhibition featuring the art of the talented Cyndi Thau in the historic art venue, Rio Carrabelle in Carrabelle, Florida. Cyndi’s art has been called colorful, inspiring, and welcoming. Color, form and light are the ingredients of these paintings. This beautiful art is on display now and the exhibition will run through the end of August.
Cyndi Thau has always wanted to keep art as a central focus of her life. She completed studies at Arizona State University. Her personal creations have included murals, mosaics, bead work and painting, especially oil painting with a glazing technique, becoming an instructor of this method. “I am fascinated by the forms, colors, depth and play of light and shadow that interact in the painting. I use thin layer upon layer of oil paint to achieve the translucency that I associate with all the things in nature.”
In recent years Cyndi studied the Plein Air style, painting from direct observation. Water, in specific the creek and ocean, are her favorite subjects. “I love translating the movement of water onto canvas. Always flowing, never still, the reflection of light on and through water are both a challenge and a delight to capture”.
Cyndi resides along Florida’s Forgotten Coast where she walks the gulf coast beaches to collect shells that she uses for centerpieces in her bead work, and continues to paint the water she so loves. Dividing her time between the studio glazing technique and painting outdoors en plein air Cyndi continues to create oil paintings with the depth and translucency she is known for.
