USA United States of America
The Northern Westchester Center for the Arts presents Winds
of Survival, featuring a solo exhibit of works by Mt. Kisco resident Susan
Weinreich June 13th through June 27th in the NWCA Opus Gallery. The exhibit
is an astonishing and hugely individual collection of paintings and pastels.
Mostly figurative, Ms Weinreich's colors are joy and her forms are
exuberant. Opening reception is Friday, June 13th at 6pm. Admission free and
open to the public
More than 70 private collections throughout the United States currently hold
the brilliantly colored and provocative works of Susan Weinreich. Ms.
Weinreich's seminal work presents the powerful cross currents of art and
emotional and mental recovery from illness. She is a noted speaker at Four
Winds Hospital of Westchester and the Columbia College of Physicians and
Surgeons, and lecturer and Art Therapist at Westchester Association of
Retarded Citizens in Mt. Kisco and White Plains.
The molten intensity of her oils and charcoals speak in color, contrast and
composition to both the urgency and beauty of emotional portraits and
abstract vision. This is the first exhibition the Mt. Kisco artist has
staged in her our city. She has held shows in noted galleries including
Ward-Nasse in Soho, 72 Market Street, Los Angeles and the Coulter Young
Gallery in Peekskill.
Ms. Weinreich studied at the Rhode Island School of Design under renowned
glass artist Dale Chihuly, Brown University and the Banff School of Visual
and Performing Arts in Alberta Canada. She maintains a studio in Peekskill
