Ann speaks about her art: “I discovered my passion for abstract art when I was encouraged to take a class after a friend of mine saw a rock, yes, a rock, I had painted for a garden in 2009.  I took my Mother’s art class and fell in love with abstract art.  I paint primarily with acrylic and mixed media elements, including charcoal, pastels, modeling paste, tar gels; anything that can add texture to my canvas.  I will also incorporate items from nature like bark, leaves, and even salt to add interest.”

Susan Davitti Darling will be showing her art in a group exhibit at York Arts@City Arts118 West Philadelphia Street, York, PA 17401. The exhibit opens with an artist reception on Nov 1, 5pm-9pm, and runs through Nov 30th. Gallery hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 10am-4pm.

Susan’s work is lovely, colorful and lighthearted  Here is how she describes her art: “I am passionate about collage. I find every aspect of it appealing. There is rummaging and collecting. Just looking for and finding things to use in the process is like a wonderful scavenger hunt. There is a feel to collage: papers of different weights, surface qualities and textures. Feathers, bottle caps, and stones offer their own delights. Collage is full of play for me.”

Susan is an active member of Mixed Media Art Group and you can view more of her work here and on her website: http://www.davittidarling.com/
