The opening reception was held on Wednesday, October 2 from 5pm - 7pm.

Francis is also be debuting his new book "Unframing the Nude". A labor of love that was 10 years in the making. 

From inside the front cover, "Francis Cunningham caught the attention of Ben Shahn at a Boston Museum summer school session in 1947, Cunningham was sixteen. Now, after a lifetime of painting, teaching and co-founding two New York art schools, he summarizes his experience in "Unframing the Nude". This book is about ways of seeing and the craft of painting; its focus is on transforming the naked human body into a nude.

"Unframing the Nude" is an incisive and personal account of a lifetime's work, an ardent sharing of accumulated knowledge that speaks to artists and viewers alike."

"With conviction and hope Cunningham has carried forward several long traditions in painting. His work continues not only the Renaissance humanistic practice of depicting the natural world and living men and women, but also the modern practice of discovering abstract forms in those things and letting those forms determine how they are painted"

- John Walsh, Director Emeritus, J. Paul Getty Museum

"Unframing the Nude" is available for pre-order. Please email for details and to reserve your copy today.
