Suzanne Rose Photography Featured at MAM

“Suspended Breath” by Suzanne Rose

The new work of Door County black and white photographer Suzanne Rose will be featured in a show at the Miller Art Museum titled “suzanne rose | sketches | photographic observations.”

Rose describes this body of work as “silence-soaked and rhythmic…visual sketches inspired by poetry and place.” Poetry, particularly a haiku of 17th century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho, triggered fresh awareness for her and deepened her vision.

The elegant, rich, minimalist works are the result of Rose’s transition to digital photography. In her search for more control in the darkroom, and a way to physically approach making larger prints, Rose turned to digital technology. The transition from film to digital was a daunting and frustrating task, and the artist sought a mentor, Daniel Anderson, to bridge the two approaches.

The public is invited to the opening reception on June 2 from 5 – 6:30 pm; there will be wine and appetizers. This exhibit will run until July 17 and is sponsored by Dennis & Bonnie Connolly, Cheryl Stidwell Parker and Stephen Lavell.

On June 14 at 10:30 am, Rose will discuss her work and life as an artist. The talk is open to the public and there will be coffee and time to view the exhibition at 10 am.
