Artist of the Month exhibition: Susan Antin

Throughout August, Gallery on Main's "Artist of the Month" series of exhibitions features Susan Antin: Experiments in Acrylic — a series of paintings utilizing unusual paint processes and non-traditional tools.

Meet Susan and see her work at a free opening reception at Gallery on Main on Saturday, August 5, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Admission is free.

Susan uses a variety of media, but primarily acrylic paint, colored pencil and ink. Her images often represent playful, childlike ideas in a surreal, abstract style. She received a B.A. in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and an M.B.A. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. While continuing to develop her artwork, She established a career in corporate training and marketing.

She has been represented in many exhibitions, including the Lyceum Hall Center for the Arts in Burlington, NJ, The Westmoreland Nationals, Westmoreland College, Pennsylvania; Montgomery Center for the Arts, Montgomery, NJ, Johnson & Johnson Corporate Gallery, Skillman, NJ and Williams Gallery, Princeton. She teaches art classes for The Arts Council of Princeton and in Downtown Somerville.

Susan is an Executive Board Member of Somerville's Arts on Division, and is a member of the Arts Council of Princeton, NJ; Farmstead Arts Center, Basking Ridge, NJ and The Printmaking Center of NJ, Branchburg. She spends much of her time coordinating art events and promoting artists for the local community.
