Recent Paintings @ Cazenovia Public Library Gallery |  |  |

Cazenovia Painter, Susan Johnson, will be exhibiting 30 oil landscape paintings of our local area at the Cazenovia Library Gallery from March 2 until April 28, 2017.

The Cazenovia Library Gallery, at 100 Albany Street, is open Monday – Friday, 9AM-9PM and Saturday, 10AM – 5PM.

In her Artist Statement Susan states, “Thirty years ago I spent most of my easel time trying to
solve the challenges of watercolor but, today I enjoy painting mostly in oil. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t stop in my tracks to feel grateful my husband, Bill and I live in such a beautiful area of Central New York. It was because of this appreciation I decided to devote the last 18 months, full time, trying to capture the colors, the lights and the shadows of landscapes in Cazenovia. I hope you recognize a few of my favorite spots and that they bring a smile to your face too.”

Mrs. Johnson’s work can also be seen at Route 20 East in Cazenovia and at The Gallery on 4 India Street in Nantucket, MA.
