Here is the part of the press release for the Artist of the Month, Sue Gouse!
To herald the New Year, the Landings Art Association is delighted to showcase Sue’s work as the January 2011 Artist of the Month. A reception in her honor will be held on Sunday, January 9 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM in the Plantation Club Gallery. The reception features a members’ bar and cheese/fruit buffet compliments of the Landings Art Association. Please RSVP to Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org for a gate pass. About her art, Sue says, “My love of beauty, color, texture, space, detail, variety, and light in God’s world delights and fascinates me. I attempt to capture scenes that enable the viewer to feel he or she is in that scene either in memory or desire. I am not making political or theoretical statements. Rather, I am simply recording my footprint during my lifetime, which I hope is a legacy for my five children and their children.”
Sue’s work is widely recognized for its merit. She has been juried into numerous shows, including many notable exhibitions in the southeast. Recently, she participated in a Telfair Jepson Museum show. Often published and displayed, her work can be found in scores of galleries throughout the region, as well as numerous private and corporate collections.

Have you ever thought about learning to paint? Until 5 years ago, I had never painted. I went to a class at a local art gallery in North Carolina with a friend. She took her class and left. I took the class and could not leave for a week! I was smitten with painting fever! I discovered a whole new world of expression. Maybe you have been wondering if you would enjoy painting...come for a lesson and see for yourself how much fun it is to find your creative spirit!
Perhaps you know someone who wants to learn to paint...you could buy lessons for a gift!
I will be teaching beginning oil painting in my gallery in City Market in Savannah. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 912-667-4378 to schedule private or semi-private lessons at your convenience.
If you live outside of the Savannah area, I would be happy to schedule a workshop for you and your friends in Savannah or in your area. Just contact me for details. I plan to have a workshop for several days at Tybee Island in the future...anyone interested?

Welcome to Sue's News, a Sue Gouse Inspirations Blog. Here I can keep you up to date with my show schedule, special sales, new works, gallery news and other happenings.
A little bit about my art career: After a long nursing career while raising 5 children, I discovered I have a passion for oil painting. My home town of Savannah, GA provides constant inspiration for painting the city, the low country, and the ocean. My frequent trips to the mountains of North Carolina result in many paintings depicting the mountain life. So, I am blessed to be able to paint both the coast and the mountains! I think God made a beautiful world, which I cannot improve upon, but I enjoy the challenge of documenting the surroundings of my life. My work is exhibited and sold in galleries in Savannah, Tybee Island and Cashiers, NC. So, whatever your passion, perhaps you will enjoy my passion! I am happy to work with you to paint a commission for you, or make canvas or paper giclee prints in whatever size you may need. Please contact me by email at email@example.com or phone (912-667-4378) with any questions. Visit my website at suegouseinspirations.com.
