Art Exhibit: The Weather Project - Selected Works

August 1st – August 30th, 2009

Cheshire Public Library, 104 Main Street, Cheshire, CT

Cheshire, CT., - The storm has rolled back into town and hit the Cheshire Public Library! That’s where artist Suzan Scott, a Cheshire resident, is exhibiting her Storm Series – Selected Works. The Storm Series is collection of more than twenty works on canvas, photographs, and videos based on the powerful storms that thundered across the state on August 7, 2008. Thirteen choice pieces have been selected for this exhibition which will run from August 1st – August 30th. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Scott says, “I was in the right place, at the right time to be able to observe and photograph the raw and elemental energy of this storm. The power and the beauty of this tumultuous storm captivated me and I’ve been working with these powerful images for the last six months.” Scott, hiking in Farmington, was able to photograph the approaching storm and then worked with the photos and her experience of the event to create atmospheric images of powerful, stormy skies.

A Cheshire resident, Scott has created an ongoing body of work called The Weather Project. Since 2006 she has focused her work exclusively on the sky, eliminating all reference to landscape. Using photography and direct observation, Scott strives to render an image that reflects a specific moment in time.

Scott is a member of Connecticut Women Artists and the Women’s Caucus for Art. She is also a member of Artwell Gallery, the Canton Artists’ Guild and the Kent Art Association. Scott was owner/curator of SmallWalls Gallery in Hartford from 1997-2000 and has worked as an art consultant and independent curator.

Cheshire Public Library is located at 104 Main Street, Cheshire, CT.

The library hours are: Monday-Thursday 9:30 am – 9:00 pm and Friday, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm.
