This summer the NATIONAL MUSEUM OF WOMEN IN THE ARTS in Wash DC is celebrating its 25th Anniversary Year with a show of paintings by abstract expressionist artist, SUSAN SWARTZ. (www.susanswartz.com) Dr. Susan Fisher Sterling, Director, National Museum of Women in the Arts (www.nmwa.org) says, “Pulsating with dazzling color, Susan Swartz’s abstract landscapes simultaneously articulate her awe of the natural world and her rallying cry for its preservation. A staunch environmentalist, philanthropist, and producer of award-winning documentaries, Susan has turned to her art as a source of healing, resilience, and inspiration throughout her battle with environmentally-bred illnesses. The National Museum of Women in the Arts is delighted to showcase her work in a special exhibition this summer." In addition to showing her paintings, the Museum will host a series of talks and films on the Environment, a subject very important to Susan, whose most recent works are energized by the trauma of two near death experiences during her 10 year struggle to regain her health after bouts with two environmentally-borne illnesses - Mercury Poisoning and Lyme Disease. Susan studied and taught art in high schools before dedicating herself to painting 30 years ago. She comes from a family of artists and musicians and has always expressed her passions through her work. Her paintings are in private and corporate collections in the US, the UK and Japan. She was featured as the 2002 Winter Olympic’s Environmental Artist and her works are in museum collections at the Salt Lake City Olympic Museum; U.S. National Ski Hall of Fame & Museum; the International Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland; and the Springfield Museum of Art in Utah. Her works are also featured in a book on Painters of the Wasatch Mountains where the bold colors and vivid strokes of her works demonstrate her twin passions for Nature and the fragility of our Environment…..interpreting scenes of the mountains of Utah and the shores of Martha's Vineyard where she resides.
