Sue Freeman's Solo Exhibit

Nature: Always Open and Ready to Inspire

In July, Dare County Arts Council's vault will feature Sue Freeman's solo exhibit titled "Nature: Always Open and Ready to Inspire."

The month-long exhibit will showcase Sue's wood mosaics created from discarded pallets, furniture left on the street and wood washed up on the beach. She will also include encaustic paintings which are created from beeswax, damar resin, and pigment.

Sue says, "​With the challenges we have faced this year, those previously disconnected from nature have found solace in lingering sunsets, winding paths, and their own backyard habitats. I have a deeply felt connection to nature and do my part to take care of her.  She is truly my inspiration and what this body of work represents. I hope to inspire you to look more carefully at the world around you, to get outside, and to reconnect with nature."

Show Dates + Artist Info

Nature: Always Open and Ready to Inspire will be on display July 3 - August 1, 2020.

Sue's art brings to mind the textures and colors discovered on her walks in the woods, the vibrancy of her garden, the tranquil estuaries and streams of the Albemarle Sound, and the creatures that inhabit these spaces.  In these spaces, she finds her inspiration and a sense of calm, and that calmness transfers to her studio. Sue finds working the wood and the wax to be extremely therapeutic.
