October 16 through November 20, 2021

As the world grappled with a deadly pandemic, restrictions on activities, extreme political divisiveness and weather events, multi-medium artist Susan Amorde looked to a new and unfamiliar media to make sense of contemporary life.   Forces of Nature marries the order and chaos of the natural world to the hope, determination, and resiliency of extraordinary women in politics highlighted by the challenging backdrop of life in 2020/21.  Her watercolor images celebrate the subject matter while embracing the character of an unfamiliar and challenging media.
