susan grabel

I had a chance to talk with Susan Grabel at the Mid America Print Council Conference in Fargo in October. Her work is based in sculpture, and following this she has made a unique series of monoprints from cast paper. I love how they celebrate the realistic feminine form, and the bold use of color.

Check her out! A very interesting artist, indeed.

Dear Ms. Geary.
We just started a site called ‘The Artist Challenge- A Private Art Club”. It is site for artist made by artist.

We were overwhelmed with artists, of various mediums, immediately signing up to be a part of it. The only thing we can equate the rush of members to is that artist need other artist -and best relate to other artist.

In short, our concept for The Artist Challenge is ‘dare’ between artists. Example: How would a you portray the concept ‘Unrequited Love’ in a singular image or artwork? That was a tough one.

The challenge can be done in any style or medium the artist chooses. (Painters, Sculptures and craftsmen are all welcome.) Each member is given 30 days to render their concept. All their works are then posted in the specific theme gallery. The process is an extraordinary exercise in conceptualizing a subject and just great fun.

We would be most grateful, if would check out our new site and see if it’s something you might consider mentioning on your website or through your organization. We could use your support.
