PES Gallery Opening
December 17 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Member Susan K. D’Alessio will display her paintings in the gallery with a formal opening after Platform.
Working abstractly with oil paint, watercolor and collage, she creates small fantasy worlds filled with color, texture, movement and space. An instinctive process, there is no planning done beforehand. Rather, she begins with one interesting shape and builds the composition, gradually adding additional shapes suggested by the one before.
Susan has been painting since 2006 after concluding a successful 30 year career as a designer/jeweler. She graduated with a Certificate in Painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2012. Currently she is a member of the Cerulean Arts Collective, 1355 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia. A solo exhibition of her work is scheduled at Cerulean in April, 2018.
Susan has been a member of the Philadelphia Ethical Society since 1985. She lives with her writer husband, Gerard R. D’Alessio, in South Philadelphia.
One-half of the proceeds from sales of the work will be donated to PES
