Timothy Jon Struna is an established painter and printmaker with a professional career approaching five decades. After graduating from Bowling Green State University in 1969, his time was divided between teaching and studio painting. Although he enjoyed teaching, his goal was to produce art on a full time basis. In 1977 he opened his own studio/gallery in Northeast Ohio and resigned from teaching to devote his energy to painting and printmaking. In 1987 the gallery was relocated to Cape Cod, its new location situated along historic Route 6A in Brewster. In 1998 his daughter Heather opened a gallery on Main Street in Chatham, which shows exclusively his work.
Working with the mediums of watercolor, oil, acrylic and copper plate engraving, Struna has developed his own characteristic style – incorporating subtle abstract qualities into traditional realism. He has a sharp eye for detail and a solid command of draftsmanship. Everything around him influences his palette and brushwork. He is a keen observer of nature and his surroundings. His painterly yet precise style may be accurately divided into three areas: architecture, nature and the still life.
Struna uses color naturally, blending his palette to achieve the perfect shade for the ever-changing Cape Cod landscape – his preferred subject matter. His work reflects a great appreciation for this area, focusing on the beaches, marshes and cranberry bogs as well as classic studies of Cape architecture. Struna explains the notable
