Cynthia MacCollum

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; The Kellogg Gallery at Cal Poly Pomona, and
internationally in Cadaques, Spain, the UK and France. 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.
Early in her career, MacCollum successfully translated her work into
textile design, creating scarves for clients Henri Bendel, Nordstrom,
Bloomingdales, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; umbrellas for
Totes; rugs for Homefires; and dishes and giftware for Sylvestri in
conjunction with the Asia Society in New York.
For the last 10 years MacCollum has focused her attention on fine
art, specifically works on paper. She is a member of New Canaan’s
Silvermine Guild, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking; and the
New Canaan Society for the Arts. A graduate of Washington
University in St. Louis with a major in Art History and a minor in Fine
Art, she has continued her studies at the Center for Contemporary
Printmaking, and at the Santa Reparata International School of Art, a
three-week intensive printmaking program in Florence, Italy. Artist
Residencies the last two summers, at the Skopelos Foundation for
the Arts in Skopelos, Greece, have deepened MacCollum’s interest in
the intersection of Nature and Art, and of Painting, Printmaking, and
Alternative Processes. In addition to private collections, her work can
be found in the Collection of the Montefiore Health System.
