The CW Mundy Fine Art Gallery houses work by the renowned fine artist of the same name. For almost 50 years, C.W. Mundy has been producing fine oil paintings, and many have been installed in Indianapolis museums, corporations, various collections, and in private collections.
Mundy’s rich impressionistic paintings are often carried out “en plein air,” and his 20008 collection of that name contains many fine landscapes and exquisite examples of Indianapolis art. His still life collections were made in the more controlled studio environment, and he has another interesting collection from 2008 called “Toy Romanticism – Fine Art Meets the Toy World.”
This prolific painter has been cited innumerable times in books and magazines, and has himself published erudite articles for artists, such as “How to Conquer Mediocrity.” Mundy holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and a Master of Fine Arts from Long Beach State University.
Some of the many public collections that enjoy a CW Mundy painting on their walls are such luminaries as: the Lafayette Art Museum, the Richmond Art Museum, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, the Indiana State Museum, the Indiana Governor’s Mansion, the Cleveland Clinic in Florida, the Indianapolis Power and Light Company, the National Art Museum of Sport in Indianapolis, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame and the G.T.E. of Indianapolis.
Mundy holds the coveted “Master Status” with the American Impressionist Society, and is a “Master Signature Member” of the Oil Painters of America. He is a highly respected member of the Indianapolis art community, and his gallery is popular among Indianapolis art galleries.
A fascinating DVD, edited from footage from 1995 to 2005, documents C.W. Mundy at various locations painting and verbalizing his methods of solving problems during the process of creation. The DVD is called “En Plein Air Collections 1995-2005” and features sites from France, Italy, England, Spain, Vienna and the United States. Visit the gallery on Indy’s Northeast side.
