“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.

Molly O'Neill- Lally
Botanical Art

On Exhibit: Nov. 1 through Dec 27

Reception: Thursday, November 7
                       5:00-7:00 p.m.

 

Molly O’Neill-Lally’s experience with watercolors began many years ago with classes at the Washington Art Association where she studied with Arthur Getz, an internationally respected painter and illustrator. She has also taken classes in colored pencil and occasionally incorporates this medium into her paintings.

Molly’s work is botanical in nature. Each painting represents a single variety of flower and its special beauty. In summer, she uses live plants as models for her creations; in winter, she uses photographs, magazines, old art books and botanical studies as her reference.

She employs a dry brush watercolor technique upon smooth, hot pressed paper to produce a detailed representation of her subjects. Complementary mats and carefully constructed frames complete each piece.

Over the years Molly has donated her work to various fundraisers within the Litchfield Community including The Carley Fund, The Connecticut Special Wishes Fund, Litchfield Garden Club, OWL’s Festival of Trees and the Morris Land Trust. She has also exhibited her work at the Oliver Wolcott and Norfolk libraries.
