Susan Swartz Opening Reception
The National Museum of Women in the Arts held a select reception on June 17 to inaugurate Susan Swartz’s Seasons of the Soul which will run through Oct. 2.
The artist is a fervent environmentalist whose abstract landscapes reflect her special connection to the earth and its majesty. Her paintings and award-winning documentaries inspire environmental appreciation, respect and protection. Director Susan Sterling spoke of the museum as “a space where art and cause come together.” The artist is battling the effects of both mercury poisoning and Lyme disease, which have only intensified her commitment to protect the natural world.
