Susie Taylor Suraci: Paris Dream of 2018

July 2-November 13, Public hours

Meet the Artist: August 5, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The artist originally hails from the Washington DC metro area. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.A. in Studio Art in 1982 and relocated to Fort Wayne that same year. Suraci is an active member of Artlink and longtime exhibitor at The Castle Gallery. She has also been the recipient of an Indiana Arts Commission grant and has taught watercolor at several local retirement communities. In 2018, Suraci realized a lifelong dream of visiting Paris where she stayed mostly in the charming Montmartre neighborhood that was home to many 19th century Impressionist artists. Her inspired artwork beautifully associates and is on display during the Botanical Conservatory’s garden exhibit “Paris: City of Light & Love.”
