“Fields and Farms” Exhibit Features the Landscape Paintings of Suzanne Chamlin

Teaneck, NJ (August 3, 2006) — The art exhibit, “Fields and Farms,” opens the fall season for Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Edward Williams Gallery. “Fields and Farms” features oils painted on site by artist Suzanne Chamlin and will be on view from August 28 to September 29. The Gallery is in FDU’s Edward Williams Hall, 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack, NJ.

Chamlin’s work is based on her perception of light in nature and the subject in the paintings often develops as she is working and responding to the forms within a particular painting. She said, “Developing the tension between what is ‘real’ and what is ‘imaginary’ is interconnected with my search to translate light and create space in the painting.”

Chamlin earned her MFA at Yale and her BA at Barnard College. Her work is part of the Yale University Art Gallery Collection as well as the collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Chamlin has taught at Fairfield University, the Rhode Island School of Design and the New School University.

Gallery hours are Mon.-Fri., 8:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; Sat., 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. This exhibit is free and open to the public. On Sunday, September 10, there is an artist’s reception in the gallery beginning at 2 p.m.
