Paintings by Susan Grisell in the Library’s Gallery Space
Susan Grisell has devoted more than fifty years to her work as a painter, the only vocation she has ever had. Following the guidance of her long-time teacher and mentor, Bernard Lennon, Susan has developed a style marked by faithfulness to nature. Her paintings are recognizable for their integrity, with line and color that are true to what she sees, and vigorous brushwork that conveys her response to the subject simply and without affectation.
Over the years, Susan’s work has won numerous awards, including first prizes at the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit in New York City and the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival in Mystic, Connecticut as recently as this past summer. But her greatest reward has been the respect of her colleagues, some of whom have referred to her as a “painter’s painter”. Susan’s work can also be seen on her website, susangrisell.com, and on Facebook and Instagram. A reception for the artist is scheduled for Oct. 2 from 2 to 4 p.m.
