Jazz Stracts: A painting created live in the moment by artist David Cunningham, of a performance at Center Stage featuring Shodekeh & Jazz musicians Kevin Robinson & Vatel Cherry, 2008.
"Mr. Cunningham is a developing artist who is constantly working with people and observing many situations through creative problem solving. His emphasis has been to create a greater perception and clarity in his waking version of the world. He cares a great deal for the children and adults he meets each day. The social concerns and qualities for the development of life through the means of art is his current language of choice. As a painter, Mr. Cunningham opens many doors in order to decipher a renewal within his vision." - The Maryland State Arts Council.
