On Display at the Livingston Public Library: Paintings by Susan Greenwald

We are delighted that the Livingston Public Library’s display case is once again showcasing artwork and special collections by community members.

The display for September features colorful paintings by local resident Susan Greenwald.

In Susan’s words, “Art is my passion!  My first experience as an artist was hand painting children’s gifts and clothing when my own children were young.  After transforming a window from my husband’s childhood home into a decorative table, I started working in mosaics, creating tables, mirrors and trays.  In 2014 I took my first oil painting class and have been hooked ever since.”

Susan works primarily in oil paints but enjoys working with different mediums.  She experiments with different styles and techniques, both traditional and abstract, and relishes working with both monochromatic and full color palettes. 

Says Susan, “ I paint landscapes, portraits, still life and animals.  I’m inspired by nature, color, light, people, vistas – everything!  Primarily self-taught, I’m motivated by the creative process and goal of conveying the beauty of life in my work.”

A member of the Visual Arts Center of Summit, NJ since 2015,  Susan  exhibits her work at their member show each year. She has also exhibited at the ACL Gallery shows in Livingston since 2019. 

Susan adds “I’m thrilled to show my work this month at the Livingston Public Library.    The exhibition features original oil paintings on paper as well as two watercolors.  I’ve found this gives a “lighter” feeling to the paintings, while still working in oils.”

On display are two series of paintings, “Fun at the Beach” and “Nature Snippets”, and “these cheerful florals and beach scenes are sure to brighten your September”, adds Librarian Archana Chiplunkar.
