Susan Swartz Studios Winter Recap

Susan Swartz has had a busy and exciting year, highlighted by the opening of her eponymous art gallery.  

Susan Swartz Studios, located at 260 Main Street, Park City, officially opened its doors on February 9th.  It features paintings spanning the past 15 years of Swartz’s career –- her signature aspen works as well as her new, modern abstract pieces. The gallery has received much praise and has helped further Swartz’s reputation.  It provides a beautiful and tranquil space for contemplative appreciation of Swartz’s relation with her art and the natural world.

This past February, Swartz participated in the 2016 Winter Art Salon at the Deer Valley Montage, a fundraiser to benefit the Kimball Art Center.  Swartz’s most recent work was displayed, and Swartz had the opportunity to discuss her art and career with event attendees during an intimate Q+A session with Robin Marrouche, the Executive Director of the Kimball Art Center.

In conjunction with the June Park City Gallery Stroll, Susan Swartz Studios will present a new collection of paintings from Swartz’s most recent work.  More information about this “opening” night will be announced.  Be sure to visit the gallery this summer to see these new works before they tour in Swartz’s 2016–2017 worldwide exhibitions to the Ludwig Museum in Budapest, Hungary; Yuan Museum in Beijing, China; Ludwig Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia; and the new Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California at Davis.
