Susan Greer presents Conversations with Nature, a collection of minimalist landscape paintings that capture the rhythmic quality of the natural world. Simplified elegant forms embody a serene sensitivity that is soulful and honest. “I paint what I feel and let the viewer fill in the details. As Edward Hopper said, ‘If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.’ ,” noted Greer. Viewing this collection, one is transported to a calm, peaceful corner of the world.
Growing up in the North Bay, Greer developed sensitivity for native rolling hills and wetlands as she roamed open spaces in Sonoma and Marin. She has degrees from UC Santa Cruz and San Francisco S U and worked with George Lucas and Apple Computer. She rounded out her studies with mentors, including Wolf Kahn, Daniel Keys and Ken Auster.
The Small Works Showcase on the stairway features “Quiet Places: Sonoma County in Pastels” by Karen A. Miller. This collection explores the quiet beauty found year round in our gorgeous county. A tranquil take on the world, Miller’s works reflect the contemplative act of creating art and the mood of her subjects. A signature member of the prestigious Pastel Society of the West Coast, Miller’s work has been selected for a number of juried exhibits.
