Are you ready for the big news? We’re so excited to tell you that we can’t hold it in any longer: Susan is being honored with a special solo exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C.

Pulsating with dazzling color, Susan Swartz’s abstract landscapes simultaneously articulate her awe of the natural world and her rallying cry for its preservation…The National Museum of Women in the Arts is delighted to showcase her work in a special exhibition this summer.
