C339 Old Grain Mill by Michael Cagno
Oil 21 x 28
 
For years I passed this old grain mill. When the sun it the facade just right, it really brought out the colors and textures. The building is now gone. Pittsgrove owns the property, taking it over for back taxes a decade ago. The township has spent years putting together financing to raze it. The facility is near the intersection of Landis and Gershal avenues, which is a redevelopment area. U.S. Grain and Feed Co. built and operated the grain mill starting around the middle of the last century

It is amazing how we pass by old buildings without paying any attention to them. What is their history? Who was their? Why is it now empty.

Biography
MICHAEL CAGNO
“I want my works to capture the spirit and emotion of the subject by using splashes of color. I embrace painting because of its unpredictability. It is the accident, the unforeseen which by chance can be pursued, and elevates the work from the ordinary to the magical. Through this process of painting, I transcend into a higher spiritual plain.”At age 19, Michael enrolled at Rowan University and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art. He went on to complete a Masters Degree in Museum Management at Seton Hall University and a Graduate Certificate in Arts Administration. He worked as a professional photographer during his schooling, helped developed his career as a serious painter.
 
Michael has been instrumental in creating the Glasstown Center Arts District and the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville, NJ. He served as the Executive Director of the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts from 2000-2006.

Michael serves as an adjunct professor at The Richard Stockton University of New Jersey and Cumberland County Community College and is a Board Member of NJ Art Pride, South Jersey Cultural Alliance and the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums.
 
Michael has become an accomplished artist early in his career. He is the cheerful witness of everyday life, and his paintings make us yearn to return to that special place. Cagno is a colorist. By directly going to the essential he avoids creating easy effects to obtain the maximum emotional response. There is a compulsion to paint, to capture the mood, to render the impression and convey the pleasure he has in that moment of activity. For Cagno, painting is about the process and the pleasure associated with the creative spirit. 
 
Today, Michael lives in Vineland, NJ with [...]
