SUU’S ART INSIGHTS TO FEATURE
WATERCOLORIST SUZE WOOLF
OCTOBER 4, 2012
Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: An award-winning artist who strives to create “awe and ambivalence” (artist statement) in her work, watercolorist Suze Woolf will be giving a presentation about her art and time in residence at Zion National Park as part of SUU’s Department of Art and Design’s weekly lecture series, Art Insights, on Thursday October 4th, 2012. The lecture begins at 7pm at Gilbert Great Hall, Hunter Conference Center, admission is free and the general public is encouraged to attend.
Suze Woolf is well-known for her work in the Pacific Northwest, and has contributed to exhibitions and publications across the country. Recent credits include the Seattle Center for the Book Arts Edible Book Festival, the National Watercolor Society Annual Exhibition, Art Buzz, and Artist Portfolio Magazine.
Suze has been drawing all her life. After an initial undergraduate degree, she pursued fifth-year studies in printmaking and ceramics at the University of Washington. Her professional career has included the graphic design of printed materials and interface designs for commercial and prototype software applications. In the last few years she has devoted herself to the watercolor medium. From traditional landscape sketches –she calls them her love letters to the planet -- to large scale industrial subjects and the numbering systems on utility poles; she loves to bring attention to what people don’t usually notice. She finds intense visual experience to capture everywhere she looks.
Art Insights is a weekly program hosted during the fall and spring semesters by SUU’s Art and Design faculty. Students and community members meet weekly to experience presentations and discussions by visiting artists and art educators from around the nation who share their work and insights and attend gallery openings. Admission is free, and the general public is invited to attend.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear an established artist speak about her unique experiences in Zion National Park! For more information on the SUU College of Performing and Visual Arts events, please call the Arts Hotline at (435) 865-8800, or visit www.suu.edu/arts.
