SUSAN VALENTINE: Florals, Large & Small, exhibits a series of luminious, realistic oil-on-canvas paintings of flowers as small as 9x12” to ones 5’w x 9’h. Depicting the beauty of our earth on canvas is more than just a pastime for Valentine, it is her response to the environmental degradation that humans have inflicted on the planet.

In the artists own words: “I have always wondered: If the world, as we now know it, ends and I am one of the few left to help raise it from the ashes… How much of it would I be able to recall fully enough to recreate? I’m not able to remember a single novel well enough to bring it back. I can’t build a car’s engine. I am pretty sure I don’t have what it takes to recreate any medications—no matter how life-saving—or figure out how electricity works. BUT if I could create some works to communicate the world’s former beauty... If I could be the one person in our small troupe of survivors who would put together works to call back the beauty that once was, that could be my contribution.”

Exhibit can be seen October 2 – November 15 at Salmon Falls Gallery in Shelburne Falls, MA, Thurs. – Mon. 11am -5pm. Information at SalmonFallsGallery.com, 413.625.9833 and in our online store.
