C’ville Arts Features – “Mythical, Magical, Lyrical Beasts” - During July

The many creative talents of bead artisan Steve Cunningham will be featured at C’ville Arts Cooperative Gallery during the month of July. He will be at the gallery on July 2nd from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to share his latest creations during the Historic Downtown Mall’s First Friday event. Steve has assembled an impressive menagerie of beasts, both real and imaginary, using beads, wire, buttons, and bits of recycled jewelry. From dragons and dinosaurs to African animals and more, each creation is accompanied by an original poem describing its personality. “I like to take one distinctive bead or element and let it tell me what kind of creature it wants to become,” Steve says. “Then I gather related beads and envision the structure of the piece.” Cunningham began Bead Brothers nearly 30 years ago, selling beaded necklaces and earrings at the City Market. A founding member of C’ville Arts (when it was Transient Crafters), Steve enjoys working with color and patterns and letting his imagination inspire new creations. “Mythical, Magical, Lyrical Beasts” is an exhibit that will amaze and entertain. Come see the show! To learn more about Steve and his work visit: Facebook: Email: For additional information, contact Amy Melville at 434-972-9500.
