Time Breaks Open: work by Susan Weisend (Faculty, Department of Art)

Time Breaks Open: Susan Weisend

September 6-October 18, 2017

Handwerker Gallery

Susan Weisend transforms common and sometimes unnoticed natural images into their authentic status of uncommon and noteworthy by layering and juxtaposing images. Form, texture and color invite the observer to travel across and through time. Her work insists that we participate with her by dropping our assumptions about humanity’s place of privilege in the world. She encourages us to see all life as valuable. She places before us the ‘gone’ with the present, the departing with the arriving, and locks us, at least briefly, in an exuberant and humbling landscape of gorges, rock slabs, fossils, and tributaries.

Susan Weisend, visual artist and Professor of Art at Ithaca College, earned her M.F.A. at Washington University in St. Louis and her undergraduate degrees at Syracuse University (B.F.A.) and SUNY Cortland (B.A.).



All exhibitions and events at the Handwerker Gallery are free and open to the public.  The Handwerker Gallery is open Monday, Wednesday, & Friday from 10am-6pm; Thursdays from 10am-9pm; and Saturday & Sunday from 12pm-5pm. Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Mara Baldwin at or (607) 274-3548. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
