Moravian College graduate Mary Lou Cummings
paintings to be displayed

H. Paty Eiffe Gallery is pleased to present work by Mary Lou Cummings, a Moravian College graduate in Art and Political Science, Class of 1994. This is the first of what we hope will become an annual celebration of art by Moravian alumni, timed to coincide with Homecoming Weekend. A reception will be held Friday, October 19, at 4:00 p.m.

Mary Lou Cummings is primarily an en plein air artist who paints on location. Although she often paints in and around her home town of Bethlehem, she has also travelled throughout the world to paint on location. She exhibits in one-person and juried shows in colleges, universities, galleries, and museums, and is the recipient of numerous awards. Her work is included in many private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad. Regional collections include Air Products, Ameritec, Vanity Fair, Keystone Bank, Nestle Corporation, and Blue Cross. Her painting, “Nain House,” was an official Bethlehem 250th Anniversary print. She has been the Artist-in-Residence at the Bethlehem Fine Arts Show.

She has also studied at Carnegie Mellon University, The Baum School of Art, and with nationally recognized artists throughout the United States and beyond. A long-time member of the Bethlehem Palette Club, she has served as its president. She has also served as a trustee of The Baum School of Art and the Lehigh Art Alliance and is a member of the Bethlehem Fine Arts Commission. She is a signature member of the Pennsylvania En Plein Air Society and the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society.

H. Paty Eiffe Gallery is located in the Haupert Union Building, at Laurel and Monocacy Streets on the Main Campus of Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The gallery is open to the public free of charge. Bethlehem is sixty miles north of Philadelphia and ninety miles west of New York City. The Haupert Union Building is open daily 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight. The exhibition is sponsored by Payne Gallery of Moravian College.
