Susan Swartz Upcoming Show at Art Palm Beach


Susan is super excited to have been invited for her first solo show in Florida, at the prestigious annual Art Palm Beach, scheduled for January 20 – 24, 2011. Susan will be showing a remarkable collection of largely abstract landscapes that have been described as “a contemporary prayer for future generations that will inherit the world in which we live.”

Michael James Fine Art will be presenting her works at the 2011 Art Palm Beach. Says gallery director Michael James,

I’ve known Susan Swartz for a decade and seen her work evolve as she was challenged by two very serious illnesses. Today her paintings evoke a remarkable energy and tension that underlies her complex relationship with the natural environment.

A fixture of Florida’s contemporary art scene for 13 years, Art Palm Beach has become one of the most influential contemporary art fairs on Florida’s Gold Coast. In 2011, Art Palm Beach will again gather 75 of the world’s most prestigious galleries, representing approximately 1,200 of the most innovative artists from across the globe.

Located along Southern Florida’s Atlantic Gold Coast, Palm Beach has long been a favored destination for discerning travels seeking sun, surf and culture. And with Palm Beach temperatures predicted to be in the low 80’s during January, the art festival could form the core of a very pleasant winter getaway. Susan hopes anyone living in or visiting Southern Florida in late January will stop by Michael James Fine Art to say hello!
