Artwork by Suzanne Watters
January 15 – February 28, 2022
Sewickley artist Suzanne Watters has always had an interest in creative experimentation. She has taken many art classes throughout her life, and she has a master’s degree in 20th century art history. Suzanne is inspired by nature, and she considers it to be one of the best teachers. Her work has been shown at a number of regional galleries, and it is included in a few corporate art collections. She is one of the founders and co-chairs of the local community group, Sustainable Sewickley, and her art reflects and supports that work.
In her life and in her work, Suzanne aims to raise awareness about environmental issues, in particular climate change. Often she does this visually by going out into nature and recording her impressions in her painting, by which she hopes to encourage the viewer to be mindful and to notice the details of their own surroundings. These paintings showcase the artist’s interest in presenting beautiful color combinations and her love of natural forms. The most important aspect of Suzanne Watters’ work is that she integrates images from the natural world in a call to not only appreciate it, but to preserve and protect it.
