An exhibit of work by Westport Artists Collective member Susan Fehlinger, whose paintings depict familiar yet abstracted settings or themes and emphasize texture, color and light.

Artist reception : Friday, December 15 from 6-7:30 pm in the Great Hall 

During her 30-year career as a television producer in New York City, Susan Fehlinger had to be content with being an occasional painter. While in New York, she attended art classes at The School of Visual Arts and plein air painting workshops in Cape Cod, New Hampshire and Maine, but, for the most part, she is a self-taught artist.

In 2003, she moved to Cape Cod and began painting more seriously. She
discovered the palette knife and started painting large still lifes in oil. Soon she was exhibiting her work and gradually had several solo shows under her belt and representation by four galleries in New England. In 2014, she relocated to Fairfield County and began focusing on themes of architecture, cityscapes and seascapes, depicting familiar, yet abstracted settings or themes.

Fehlinger's painting style emphasizes her interest in texture, color and light, and she applies neutral or earth tones thickly with the palette knife to highlight structure, form and shadow. As well, her compositions play with scale, placement and negative and positive space. An active member of the Westport Artists Collective, Fehlinger is now represented by Southport Galleries in Southport, CT.
