Artist Talks

Artist talks are free and open to the public. Beer from Four Saints Brewing Company is available for purchase. Artists will present slides and discuss their work.

Suzanne Peck and Owen Laurion

November 2, 5:30pm

Suzanne Peck

Suzanne Peck is a visual artist, writer, educator and curator living in New York City. Her work considers themes of skin, touch, intimacy and material with a healthy scoop of irreverence on top. She likes to think as much as she likes to make and is most delighted when she can practice both simultaneously. Glass and art have been the major engines driving Suzanne around the globe, and she has taught and exhibited all over the US and Australia. Her work can be found in many private collections around the world.
