Terrance Cummings Art at Plainsboro Library Gallery
STYLIZED ART: The works of Plainsboro artist, designer and illustrator Terrance Cummings will be on display at the Plainsboro Public Library until the end of March. An artist talk is scheduled for February 5 at 2 p.m.
Plainsboro artist, designer and illustrator Terrance Cummings will be exhibiting his work in the Plainsboro Public Library Gallery during the months of February and March.
Opening Feb. 1, the show will feature Cummings’ graphic work, which often consists of flattened areas of color stitched together into stylized figures. Classically trained in figurative drawing, the artist often uses the human figure as his main subject.
Cummings describes his art as “socially relevant” and says he aims to create art that “solves a problem”. He says he hopes to “provide positive portrayals and alternatives to some of today’s difficult issues.”
Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Cummings grew up in New York. There he took his first art classes at the Art Students League, where he studied anatomy and design. He attended New York City High School of Music and Art and received a BFA from Parsons School of Design.
As a book designer and illustrator, Cummings has worked for Random House, Crown Books, Viking Penguin and Kensington Press. He has received awards from the Bookbinders Guild and the Society of Illustrators, as well as the American Illustration Award.
Cummings is scheduled to give a lecture at the library on February 5 at 2 p.m., provided that access to the library is not restricted due to COVID-19.
The Plainsboro Library is located at 9 Van Doren, Plainsboro. For more information, visit plainsborolibrary.org.
