August is commonly known as the only month which does not contain any holidays. But that doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be cause for celebration in the eighth month of the year.
For Susannah Virginia Griffin, this August is a little bit extra special. That’s because it marks the one-year anniversary of the exhibition of many of her paintings at Agora Gallery in New York City. This contemporary art gallery in Manhattan is known for showcasing the work of globally-renowned artists for the last three decades.
From August 16 through September 5 of 2013, Susannah was one of four artists featured in the exhibition entitled “Portals of Perception.” Susannah’s works, along with those of Jennifer Ferdinandsen, Fred Mou, and Natali Karppinen, were described by Agora Gallery as “combin[ing] a clear and nuanced vision of reality with a joyous celebration of the beauty and potential of the world.”
The paintings created by Susannah that were on display as part of “Portals of Perception” were:
- Spirally Night
- King David and Goliath
- The Making of Mona
- True Royalty
- The King’s Courtship
- Tuesday Dreamer
- The Flow of Creation
- The Shield
- Inner Beauty
Many of these works can be viewed elsewhere on this blog in the various collections listed on the left. But you can see these paintings and others at the Griffin Gallery, which is located on Colquitt in the Upper Kirby area of Houston. Since the hours of the gallery are by appointment only, be sure to call ahead to set up a time for viewing Susannah’s artwork. The phone number is (713) 438-5220.
