The Onset of Autumn for Susan Swartz

Fall Study

Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.
– Albert Camus

The Seasons of the Soul exhibition has finally wrapped up at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. While Susan’s paintings coming down from the museum walls, the leaves are coming down from the aspens and Gambel oak trees surrounding Susan’s studio in Park City.

After a busy summer of painting on the coast, Susan is now back in the mountains, preparing for an upcoming solo exhibition in New York City. Scheduled for December 8-11, the exhibition of paintings will hang at The Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Gallery director, Michael James, is organizing the special exhibition at The Carlyle. “I’ve known Susan Swartz for a decade and seen her work evolve as she was challenged by illness,” he remarked. “Today her paintings are gaining new acclaim as they display a truly dynamic energy and tension that underlies her more complex relationship with the natural environment.”
