Limestone Exhibits Mixed-Media Paintings by 2005 Graduate
"Wino Street" by Susan Dunn '05

Limestone College is hosting a 13-piece solo exhibition of works by alumna Susan Dunn. Although untitled, the exhibit features a collection of abstract paintings of landscapes and cityscapes using mixed-media including oil, acrylic and NuPastels.

The exhibit, which will run through October 22nd, is housed in the A.J. Eastwood Library Gallery. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m.-10 p.m. and admission is free and open to the public. Dunn, who earned her studio art degree from Limestone in 2005, noted that the exhibit showcases her explorations of color and brush stroke. "I've been working on these pieces for the last several years," she said, "and I believe they reflect my fascination with color. It's amazing how just the right color texture can cause a particular painting to take on an entirely different meaning for the viewer."

According to Carolyn Ford, Assistant Professor of Art at Limestone, Dunn made a strong impression while honing her craft as a student. "Sue was a student of both Professor (Andy) Cox and me. She was one of those students who absorbed all the information given her as well as investigated inspiration from her own sources, whether travels or music. She was one of our most devoted art students, encouraging others to burn the midnight oil in the labs. She displayed the work ethics of an art student who wanted to truly become an artist."
