Gallery 255 – December 2014 – Susan Nicholas Gephart

“Adventure and experimentation are chosen over safe and predictable outcomes. As a result of this mindset, I consistently create over a
hundred pieces a year. Whenever possible, the plein air piece is finished on location,” said Susan Nicholas Gephart whose colorful and impressionistic plein air pastel and oil paintings are on display in Gallery 255 at the Public Library for Union County throughout the month of December.

Susan has been painting for forty years and has shown with The Pastel Society of America, The Art of the State of Pennsylvania, and is in the permanent collection of The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art. Susan organizes Hameau Farm Studio Artist Retreats, and is founder of the Plein Air Painters of Central PA. She is a Dedicated Workshop Instructor for Gamblin Oils, and demonstrates Sennelier and Unison Pastels. Susan teaches locally at Brushstrokes in Lewisburg, and her work can be seen at Faustinas Art Gallery in Lewisburg. For more information on Susan visit her website

An opening reception for Susan is scheduled for Friday, December 5th from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
