Reception: Saturday, March 11 from 4pm to 6pm
Riverworks Art Center announces its next Artist in the House show, “Strands of Time,” featuring the work of renowned artist Susan Due Pearcy. Susan’s show included a selection of her prolific body of work, which connects and highlights the motifs, themes, and sensibilities that carry through her over fifty years of art making.
Susan Due Pearcy was raised in St. Louis, MO and studied art education at Southeast Missouri State University and graduated from New York University with a BS in Painting, Graphics and Sculpture. Her work is in many collections including the permanent collection of the Chemalier Museum in France; the Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires; the Pushkin Museum, Moscow and Washington DC’s National Gallery of Art Rare Book Collections. Additionally, Susan has volunteered for over 20 years at the National Institutes of Health where she promotes art projects with hospitalized children. In 2018, the art she produced during her years working with the SW GA Civil Rights Project and the United Farm Workers Union became a part of the Library of Congress collection.
Susan works in a variety of media, including watercolor, oil, pastel and printmaking. She has lived in the Agricultural Reserve for over 28 years, and works from her Sugarloaf Studio behind her home in Barnesville, Maryland where the natural world continues to inspire her work.
Susan Due Pearcy, Strands of Time, is on view March 8 – April 30, 2023 in the gallery at Locals Farm Market, 19929 Fisher Ave. Poolesville, MD.
