ART SEEN WITH SUSI is a platform for showcasing the artist studios I’ve visited, the art and exhibits I’ve seen, and the art adventures that I’ve been on. Having the site provides a way to curate it all together into one place, bring exposure to some of the great things happening in NYC and abroad and offer a different perspective on a collection of artists, galleries, events and cities around the art world.

ART is what I know, what I love, and what I am passionate about sharing with art lovers, artists, curators, collectors and critics of all kinds.

ART SEEN is where I share the artist studios and collections I visit; the exhibitions and art fairs that I attend; the art trips I’ve taken and individual artworks that I’m drawn to. [Note: Due to many art environments prohibiting photography, I am unable to photograph and/or share much of what I see.]

WITH SUSI is because when it comes to the art world, I believe everyone has a unique way they like to approach it and it’s sharing this individuality that distinguishes one art personality from the next. 


New posts are added weekly and listed on the homepage!
