Talk about excess baggage charges — Susan and lots of her recent paintings traveled to New York City this week for a very special event. A collection of  Susan’s available paintings opens today at The Carlyle Hotel on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Exhibited alongside estate silver specialist, The Silver Fund, and luxury jeweler, YVEL, Susan’s work includes several pieces from her recent solo exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, as well as a selection of brand new paintings.

Avenue, Manhattan’s oldest society magazine, promoted the three-day event in its November 2011 issue, calling the triple-threat exhibition a “Trove of Treasures.” Says the publication, “New Yorkers are on the prowl for unique, exquisite and memorable pieces to gift… [now] holiday shoppers will have the chance to feast their eyes on the remarkable collections [offered by this trio.]”

In New York this weekend? Stop by The Carlyle from 10am-8pm today or tomorrow,  Saturday, December 10th or Sunday, December 11th from 10am-4pm.
