C.W. Mundy: Weekend With the Masters Instructor
Morro Bay Rock, Near Cambria by C.W. Mundy, oil painting on linen,
16 x 20.
C.W. Mundy, an American impressionist, was born in 1945 and
raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. He graduated with a B.F.A. from Ball State
University, in Indiana, in 1969 and then shortly thereafter traveled to
California, where he painted, played music, and worked on his M.F.A. at Long
Beach State. In 1978, he returned home to Indiana, worked as a sports
illustrator for a decade, then in the early 1990s took on the challenge of
painting in a more impressionistic style, going out of doors and painting en
plein air, from life.
This painting style led Mundy to a series of European plein
air painting trips, beginning with a trip to France in 1995 and continuing
through the present. In 2007, Mundy achieved master status in The American
Impressionist Society and in 2003 he was invited to master signature membership
in the Oil Painters of America. He is also a signature member of the American
Society of Marine Artists.
His work is in select public collections including the Art
Museum of Grater Lafayette in Lafayette, Indiana; the National Art Museum of
Sport in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in New
Castle Indiana. In 2003, International Artist Publishing (Sydney, Australia)
published and distributed internationally the book Memoirs: Charles Warren Mundy, American Impressionist. In 2010,
Mundy was a finalist in the Still Life category and a finalist in the
Figurative category at the International Art Renewal Center Salon Competition.
He was also an exhibition judge and guest lecturer at the American
Impressionist Society’s national juried exhibition in Nashville, TN. Mundy’s
work has also been featured in Workshop
magazine from American Artist.
Mundy is represented by Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta,
Georgia; Gallery 1261 in Denver, Colorado; the Insight Gallery in
Fredericksburg, Texas; and the Morris-Whiteside Galleries in Hilton Head, South
Carolina. For more information on Mundy, visit his website.
