SUSAN GARTRELL: Spirit Creatures
12 May – 25 June 2017
Opening Reception Friday, 12 May 2017.
For Susan Gartrell, a portrait is the intertwining of memory and emotion. The spirits she creates reveal life stories, painted through the lens of her imagination. They are intentionally painted small to create an intimacy that requires one to view them “up close” in order to see their stories revealed. Susan’s work has been shown in galleries throughout New England and is held in private collections throughout the United States and Europe. This is the first show of her work in North Carolina.
