The Northampton Arts Council is a city board and a non-profit organization whose goal is to support and promote the arts in Northampton. Originally created as a Local Arts Lottery Council, it began its work by administering a grants program in which proceeds from a state lottery are distributed to local artists, arts groups, and public schools.

Susan Barocas will be showing a painting exhibit at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary,
127 Combs Rd., Easthampton, MA. Dates of showing: August, 2016. Free admission.
I am calling the exhibit "Sanctuary" because of the peace that nature gives to me.

“My work is generally done on panels, exclusively with a palette knife. There is much more color in the world than we generally note. Color is everything. I exaggerate color to evoke emotional response. As an artist, what I feel is translated into a visual statement. Whether I am painting abeautiful landscape or an impish pup, it is always the same goal, to communicate the feeling of the moment. It is how I speak and why I paint. I paint the joys of my life.”

The paintings in this exhibit are from Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, Park Hill Orchard, and several from a recent trip to Amsterdam and Cape Cod.

A reception is planned for Thursday, August 18, from 5PM to 7PM at the Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary’s Visitors' Center. I am happy to donate 25% of any paintings sold at this exhibit as thanks to the good work of Arcadia Sanctuary in protecting a treasure!!!
