Susan Coleman is an artist and educator from Mount Vernon, Iowa.
She is the gallery coordinator and lecturer at Cornell College, and her work focuses on landscape themes encountered in the local environment.
"I see my work as a meditation, drawing on memories, questions, and attempts to settle my ever-shifting perceptions," Coleman says. "My goal is to go beyond the merely scenic aspect of landscape, toward a larger goal of nuanced visual metaphor."
On Friday, Nov. 8, a Question and Answer with Coleman will begin at 4 p.m. followed by a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Galvin Fine Arts Center.
