Schwinnderful: an entire show of bicycle paintings.

Bicycle art show Cynthia Meyer

Come see my new show at The San Luis Obispo Museum Of Art.

This collection is all about bicycles: everything from your grandpa’s skiptooth to stingrays and more modern frames.

The show runs April 5th through April 28th. I’ll be there Friday April 5th from 6 to 9, during Art After Dark. Stop by, see the paintings, and share a glass of wine!

1010 Broad Street (on the west end of the Mission Plaza),

  1. I really, really wish I could attend. I have been so homesick for the past several years, and your art gives me that warm feeling of home inside! I might as well be in another solar system these days.

  2. Went to see “Schwinnderful” on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed every piece. Interesting choice to feature the bicycles without their owners (except for “Morning Commute”). I miss my trusty Schwinn of long, long ago. Did you have one?

  3. Thanks HB! I think that leaving people out of my paintings allows the viewer to put him/herself there. I love creating a quiet Sunday-morning-before-everyone’s-up feeling. As for my own bicycle, as a kid I had a Sear’s Best that weighed more than I did, and a very bad case of Schwinn envy.
