Art Critique by Susan Swinand
On Tuesday, March 28, the Wellesley Society of Artists will hold the annual Margaret Fernside Memorial talk, which will feature an Art Critique by Susan Swinand. This event is free and open to the public and will provide an excellent opportunity to learn what an art expert sees that makes a painting a work of art.
Swinand is an artist with a preference for water media. Her work may be seen at www.swinand.com. Although her work is usually abstract, the structures and forms of nature are a big influence for her. She received a BFA in painting from Moore College of Art and studied in Europe following graduation. When she returned, she studied the Philosophy and Appreciation of Art at the Barnes Foundation for two years. Sue taught studio classes at the Worcester Art Museum for more than 25 years and visual communications, design, and painting at Clark University. She currently teaches painting at Wellesley College Greenhouses.
WSA members are invited to bring up to three paintings to this event for critique and discussion. Her insightful comments will be enlightening not only for the artists, but for all who attend.
This event will be at the Wakelin Room of the Wellesley Free Library, 530 Washington Street, Wellesley. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m., and Sue will start the critique at 7:00.
