Fenimore Art Museum solo exhibition
From March 30–December 29, 2013, Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown exhibited fourteen Susan Jones Kenyon works in a season-long exhibition, Places in Passing: Contemporary Landscapes by Susan Jones Kenyon.
“On the surface, Places evoke memories when associated with moments in our lives. Yet on a much deeper level, they may also evoke mood, or a state of being we connect to places that have special meaning to us. Kenyon’s paintings capture this landscape of meaning in ways that are both deeply personal and universal. Her landscapes go beyond admiration for the beauty of Otsego Lake and environs. They point instead to the human need to find solace, inspiration, refuge and reflection in nature. Like all great art, her paintings deepen our experience of the world around us.”
