Bill Cummins has been interested in art since he was 10 years old. At this young age, he wanted to be a comic strip artist and cartoonist. Bill spent his last tow years of high school at the High School of Industrial Art, where he graduated at the head of his class. After serving three years in the Army due to drafts in 1948, Bill discovered his passion and ambition had morphed to fine art. During his military service, his eyes were opened to the work of Rembrandt, Matisse, Van Gogh and impressionists. He spent the next several years learning and understanding these renowned fine artists and eventually began teaching himself with frequent visits to museums like Guggenheim and MOMA. Bill has exhibited throughout New York City, and throughout our area since arriving in Colorado Springs. His exhibitions have included shows at Max Art (formerly in the Trestle Building), Running Horse Gallery, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, and Gallery G44.
