Merchants Bank Gallery - South Hero - November
Island Arts is proud to host the work of South Hero artist, Suzie Quinn during the month on November. Her work can be seen during banking hours in the conference room
primarily in oils, Suzie's style has evolved over the years to represent
her love of color, composition and contrast. Although her paintings
cover many subject areas, they all share the qualities of high contrast,
saturated colors and a strong sense of place. She uses color to evoke a
mood or memory. This results in a lot of experimentation with different
types of imagery inspired by actual places that she has visited, people
she's known and loved or everyday beauty in the world around her.
Suzie was a fine arts major during her early college career and has studied studio art at Monroe Community College, Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Vermont. She has had a life-long commitment to continuing education in the arts and enjoys the rich arts community in northern Vermont area as a regular participant in studio art classes at Burlington City Arts and the Shelburne Craft School. One of her paintings was recently selected for the 2013 Juried Show at the SEABA Art Hop.
She has been a resident of South Hero with her husband, Mike Herrmann and daughter, Kelly for over 10 years and enjoys the natural beauty of the islands as an inspiration. Her studio (Suzie Quinn Studio) www.suzie-quinn-studio.com is located on Keeler Bay in South Hero and is open year round by appointment.
We hope you are able to see her show at the gallery.
