Guest Speaker: Suzanne Stryk

Suzanne Stryk is an artist who finds equal fascination in the natural world and the visual arts. Her conceptual nature paintings and assemblages have appeared in solo exhibitions throughout the United States, and her portfolios and related writings have been featured in Terrain.org, Orion, Ecotone, and the Kenyon Review. She is the recipient of a George Sugarman Foundation grant and a Virginia Commission for the Arts Fellowship.

Between 2011-13, she logged hundreds of hours by car, foot, and waterway to create “Notes on the State of Virginia,” a series of mixed media assemblages that revel in the beauty and history of Virginia’s diverse natural and culturally rich regions. While the artwork toured the state in museums and galleries, Stryk got to work describing he experience, which became the book The Middle of Somewhere: An Artist Explores the Nature of Virginia (Trinity University Press , 2022).
