The Armory Art Center will host this free lecture given by visiting master artist, Sue Archer. The lecture will be held in the Armory's library at 5:00 pm on January 19, 2016. The lectures offered by the Armory Art Center are intended to foster the discussion and creation of the arts.
Susan Archer became involved with watercolors in 1980 after a 15-year career in Physical Education and coaching. When she moved to Florida in 1979, she had the time and opportunity to take up watercolor painting as a hobby. The hobby has now become a new, full time career. The artist enjoys meeting the people buying her work, so instead of showing through galleries; she sells her original watercolors at outdoor juried shows in Florida, doing approximately 9 shows a year. She also teaches 4-6 workshops a year.
Sue combines her enjoyment of the intricate process of drawing with the wet on wet approach to watercolors. Most of her work is representational with a strong emphasis on color and design by simplifying a subject's light and shadow patterns. Using a close-up view, she accentuates the dynamic interplay of positive and negative space. Her present work explores the simplifying of the shapes of fruit and vegetables and the use of textural elements.
