Please join us at the Wagner College Gallery for a solo exhibition of paintings by Susan M. Blubaugh, “Gathering Light.” The exhibition will feature landscape paintings of Bucks County, Pa. and Hunterdon County, N.J., including studio paintings as well as the plein air studies that inspired and informed the larger works.
The exhibition will open with an artist’s reception in the gallery on Saturday, Jan. 27 from 2 to 5 p.m., and will run through Saturday, March 31.
The gallery is located in the Union Building on the Wagner campus at 631 Howard Ave., Staten Island.
Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public.
The focus of Blubaugh’s work is the continual study of the subtle changes in light, time of day and season, and she often returns to the same location, recording the shifts in the atmosphere and emotion of a particular subject.
Blubaugh has been painting and exhibiting her landscapes, still-life paintings and the occasional portrait in Bucks and Hunterdon counties since 2001. She started her career as a painter and illustrator in New York City, where she studied at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design with painters Isaac Soyer, Harvey Dinnerstein, Burton Silverman, Hilary Holmes and Curt Hanson.
“Her love of painting directly from nature has stayed with her since I encountered her painting in Central Park in the 1980s,” said Hanson. “Her drawing ability is impeccable, and the paintings always reflect a freshness only gotten by firsthand observations. Many artists have shorthand methods that produce flashy effects that often hide their lack of ability. With Susan, I always see a patient seeking of visual truth that is imbued with the excitement of honest discovery.”
Blubaugh has dedicated this exhibit to the memory of Curt Hanson, her friend and mentor, who passed away recently after a short illness.
More of her work can be seen on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/susan_m_blubaugh/) and on her website, susanblubaugh.com.
The Wagner Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday until 9 p.m.
The Dr. Ester Grushkin Memorial Lecture will feature Dr. Megan Cifarelli
Professor of Art History, Manhattanville College.
For centuries, the study of ancient civilizations was dominated by an approach that focused on the accomplishments and lives of men, and a few extraordinary women who succeeded in masculine spheres of activity. More contemporary approaches that integrate feminist theoretical perspectives have illuminated the significant roles of women in antiquity, and the social practices by which masculine and feminine roles were defined and performed. Rather than focusing on "Great Women" from the past, this talk will explore the limits of what we can know about the lives of ancient men and women from the perspective of material culture, by investigating the ways archaeologists try to understand the relationships between sexed bodies, gendered individuals, and grave goods in burial contexts.
