Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum
One West 4th Street (between Broadway and Mercer Street), Manhattan
September 13, 2001-January 4, 2002
Susan Malloy: Seasons, an exhibition of paintings and drawings
inspired by the seasonal aspects of nature, will be on view at the
Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum from September
13, 2001-January 4, 2002. Inspired by nature, the works in this
exhibition express spiritual ideas derived from Biblical themes.
Susan Malloy is a life-long painter whose works distill a sense
of place, the essence of the seasons. The elements of the form and
pattern are the aspects of the landscape that give a universal and
spiritual resonance to her work – not the depiction of a particular
place but the interpretation of it. Malloy is adept in all media,
from the lush color palette of her oil paintings to the graphic
solidity of her black and white lithographic crayon drawings. With
clarity and vision, Malloy gives us a glimpse of God's world of
nature and some of the material world of man.
Laura Kruger, Curator of the HUC-JIR Museum, noted: "Malloy responds
to her Jewish heritage by interpreting the sacred texts, psalms,
and midrashim through a keen visual perspective. Her strong line
and clear delineation of nature enable the viewer to share Malloy's
joy of the natural environment."
Malloy was born in New York, and received a B.S. degree in art
from Skidmore College. She attended the Arts Students League and
the Positano Art Workshop in Italy. She currently lives in Westport,
Connecticut where she has her studio, and is active in the Westport
Her solo exhibitions include, among many others, shows at the Westport
Arts Center at The Nature Center in Westport, CT, Skidmore College
in Saratoga Springs, NY, and Harvard University Divinity School
in Cambridge, MA. Her work has also been featured in numerous group
exhibitions, including the McMannus Room Library Collection, Westport
Schools Permanent Art Collection Show in Westport, CT, and the Stamford
Art Association in Stamford, CT.
