'Hidden Epidemic' theme of LSC-CyFair art exhibition
LSC-CyFair's Bosque Gallery presents the "Hidden Epidemic" exhibition, with work by visiting artist Susan Spjut, whose paintings raise awareness and encourage a new perspective.
Susan Spjut explores topics often glossed over with her paintings in "Hidden Epidemic," the visiting artist exhibition which will be on display Jan. 25 through
Feb. 10 at the Lone Star College-CyFair Bosque Gallery.
Of the title, Spjut said, "Family violence, sexual assault and child abuse are often beneath the surface and no one really wants to know about it. We read about it in the papers, feel bad, then move on." Spjut's paintings encourage the viewer to reconsider this perspective. As a forensic nurse, she works with patients of assault, abuse and violence. When she lost a friend to domestic violence, she found a way to combine her two passions: her work and her paintings. She cuts out newspaper articles and then draws or paints images over the articles.
"In a sense, the newspaper is my canvas. My paintings represent the people stuck in these news stories," she explained.
To learn more about this artist in person, come to the LSC-CyFair Bosque Gallery opening reception set for 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 27, in the lobby of the Center for the Arts on the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.
