Susanah Howland’s paintings and prints begin with close observation of places that she loves. Drawing on the idea that certain geographies can, by their colors and forms, feel like home, the work emerges through a thoughtful process involving memory and intuition as well as looking.
Susanah’s most recent work is currently on view at Gallery Wright in Wilmington, Vermont and the Concord Center for the Visual Arts in Concord, Massachusetts. Her work has been shown at the New Britain Museum of American Painting, New Britain, Connecticut, the Khaki Gallery and Copley Society, Boston, Massachusetts, the DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts and the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
In 2016, Susanah curated Responding to Place, an exhibit exploring individual response to personal landscape and in 2015, she curated cut. paper, fold., an exhibit around paper as muse and medium. She recently spent a month on Great Cranberry Island, ME at the Heliker-Lahotan Foundation preparing work for an exhibit at the Concord Center for the Visual Arts. Her work has been shown in conjunction with the work of Lois Dodd, Wolf Kahn, John Walker and Allen Whiting and is in numerous corporate and private collections.
Susanah received her BA from the College of William and Mary and her post-baccalaureate certificate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She lives and works in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
