Peter Cusack is proud to present an exhibition of recent works called The Pageant of Summer And Other Paintings About Litchfield. The Pageant of Summer is a series of oil paintings on paper that as Peter says, “suggests the experience of summer passing through my garden as I notice the movement of light, the sun, and the rhythms that nature manifests.”

Along with the Pageant series, Peter will show a related body of work based on his experiences living in Litchfield. These works are both objective observations and subjective musings. 

Peter Cusack is a publisher, producer, writer, and painter. He is the founder of Cornwall Contemporary Art (COCOA) and has degrees from Syracuse University and Ecole Albert Dufois. His work can be found in the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators, the New York Transit Museum, and the United States Air Force Art Collection.

His thoughts on art and drawing appear in “An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers” by Danny Gregory, and “Drawing Inspiration: Visual Artists At Work” by Michael Fleishman.

“As a painter, my language is line and color and shape. They are my tools. They are my voice made visible…the question is never what am I looking at; the question is: what do I see?”

Suzan Scott’s work explores the qualities of color, light and abstraction in nature that combines her interests in art, nature, and science. Nature informs her work and directs her eye; the effects of light, color and atmospherics feature prominently in her work. New visual information constantly presents itself to her. Close observation and awareness of the moment play a big part in her art practice.

Suzan is a member of the Arts Alliance of Woodbury, the Canton Artists Guild, the Washington Art Association, and the Artspace New Haven Artist Directory. She has exhibited in solo and group shows across the state for over 25 years. Her work has been shown in galleries, private schools, colleges and universities, including the John Slade Ely House, Slater Museum, New Britain Museum, Yale ArtSpace Gallery, Homer Babbidge Library at UConn Storrs, and UConn Health Center. She has participated in City Wide Open Studios in New Haven since 2002, showing at Erector Square and Alternative Space venues. Scott has also exhibited in Blue Mountain Gallery’s Annual Invitational Show in Chelsea, NY.

A percentage of all art sales directly benefits the library in support of materials, services and programs.
