Susan’s Men on Exhibit at the Harrison Public Library
The Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue presents “Susan’s Men” by Susan Obrant on display February 5 to March 3. A meet the artist reception will be held February 12 from 2:00 to 4:00pm.
The artist states, “The concept of this exhibition began because my husband loved my portraits of men. They started when I was a burgeoning illustrator of both Record Albums and Book Jackets. The Albums culminated in a Grammy nomination for album cover design and the first Classical Music nod.
“Some of these portraits were commissions, some were requests, and some just great friendships. Several now are sadly deceased, therefore even more memorable. Their variety is proof of the testosterone! And a salute to men.”
Susan Obrant’s art, from Grammy nominated record album covers to museum level painting, is in collections worldwide. Her Couture Crochet has costumed the Heidi Latsky Dance Company, the actress Audra McDonald, and Violinist Daisy Jopling (at her Lincoln Center performance) among others. The installation, “A Serious Art Discussion, “combining both, appeared at Hudson Valley MOCA Art Museum in Peekskill from 2016 – 2018.
2022 culminated in Address:Earth, where her 25’ Epiphany of Paradox oil was the core of the exhibition at West Conn University in Danbury, CT.
