Art In The Library Will Feature The Works Of Rev. Suzanne Wagner

 Around Town, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Art In The Library Will Feature The Works Of Rev. Suzanne Wagner
Feb 052017
 

“Visions in Art” opens at the Case Memorial Library, 176 Tyler City Road during the month of February 2017 featuring the work of Rev. Suzanne E. Wagner, natural science artist in watercolor and colored pencil. 

The Artist opening will be on February 9 from 5– 7 p.m.  The exhibit is part of the library’s, Art in the Library series.

Rev. Wagner said, “It is fulfilling to be able to recreate some of nature’s most amazing miracles like the anatomy of a flower or the wing structure of a bird, even the antennae of a beetle.  These aspects of nature are extraordinary works of art in and of themselves.  I live in gratitude to be able to study them and then paint or draw them to the best of my given ability. I use art, especially watercolor, as a contemplative practice; a way in which to go deep into my spirit and meditate upon the issues of life, my children, my work.  I use my art in search of answers to problems that the subject poses and indeed, life poses.

I have nurtured my creativity through painting and in the beauty of the world around me. I majored in art while I was in college not knowing exactly what I was going to do with it, if anything at all.  It wasn’t until later that I realized that delving so deeply in art would help me to use the creative process in so many different aspects of my life and work.”

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Watercolor from William Woods University in Fulton MO, Rev. Wagner later went on to complete a Master of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School, Newton Center, MA. 

She was ordained in the United Church of Christ in 2002 and serves at the Orange Congregational Church as their Senior Redevelopment Pastor.  She continues to take art classes with the Connecticut Natural Science Illustrators in collaboration of the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History: Yale University, New Haven.

She is a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, Connecticut Natural Science Illustrators, New York Botanical Garden, and the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.
