Nature Imagined by Susan Swinand

Date: October 7, 2020 - February 7, 2021 at Admission is by timed entry and advance ticket only

Presented By: Worcester Art Museum in partnership with ArtsWorcester

In collaboration with ArtsWorcester, the Worcester Art Museum presents works by Susan Swinand, the Sally R. Bishop Prize Winner of the 2019 ArtsWorcester Biennial. Primarily a painter with a preference for water-based media and abstraction, Swinand has long found the natural world a source of inspiration. Nature Imagined explores Swinand's creative process and her drive to find balance between opposing forces in nature. By allowing the materials to take on a form of their own, Swinand taps into her subconscious to make meaning out of biomorphic shapes and fluid gestures. In so doing, Swinand creates imaginative worlds, full of contradictions, enchantment, and even  humor.

This exhibition is organized in partnership with ArtsWorcester.
