The Color of Light

November 16, 2005

Join artist Susan Stillman for an informal Gallery Talk as you view her works, learn about her technique and hear about her experiences as teacher and artist on Saturday, November 19, at 1 p.m., the Gallery in the Park at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River. The exhibit features more than 50 paintings in acrylic that reflect Stillman’s fascination with the transformative effects of light and color on ordinary scenes.

With vigorous brushstrokes, intense hues, and a passion for the structure of nature and architecture, she renders the commonplace enchanted. Her large-scale canvases are drawn from familiar suburban views as well as from trips to England, Wales and our own Northeastern shore.

Ms. Stillman, who has earned accolades for her home portrait commissions, has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and an MFA in painting from Brooklyn College. Her work has been published in hundreds of magazines, books, and posters. She has been a member of the faculty of Parsons School of Design since 1983.

“The Color of Light” is on view daily through December 31, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Gallery in the office at the park.

Admission is free. Parking is $4 with a Westchester County Park Pass, $8 without the Pass. Ward Pound Ridge Reservation is a Westchester County Park. It is located at the junction of Routes 35 and 121 South in Cross River and can be reached via I-684, exit 6. Head east off the exit to the junction of Route 121 and turn right; the park is on the left. For more information about the exhibit, call Ward Pound Ridge Reservation at (914) 864-7317.
