The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts will host an art reception celebrating the works of Susan Schwake on Thursday, February 13th from 6-8pm. The reception will be held in the Bernier Room (Suite 135) of the Rochester Community Center. Light refreshments will be served. The public is encouraged to attend.
Susan Schwake is an artist, art educator, and best selling author. In her artwork, she is inspired most by the natural world and the changes it goes through – both inherent and external forces. She often abstracts these interactions through simplification, distortion, heightened or changed color and viewpoint. She works with ink, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and paper on paper, panel and canvas. Her work has been exhibited on the East Coast of the US, Mexico and Europe.
Susan is also an owner and art teacher at Artstream Studios in Rollinsford NH. Her students, both children and adult have inspired her endlessly for the past 25 years. She has written six books about making art with children to date, with a seventh one being published early next year. She paints and draws most every day. Learn more at www.susanschwake.com.
