SUSANNA BLUHMRed Country: Mississippi + Arizona

 

In our third solo exhibit for gallery artist Susanna Bluhm, we exhibit new paintings from her ongoing series Red Country. Started as a reaction to the divisive national election in the fall of 2016, Susanna intends to visit and make paintings about as many ‘red’ states as she can during the presidency of Donald J. Trump. This exhibit includes large, mid-size and smaller paintings inspired by her travels to Mississippi and Arizona in 2017.

Seattle artist Susanna Bluhm grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles, she earned her BA in Studio Art from California State University Humboldt and her MFA in Painting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2005, she was an Artist-in- Residence at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin and at the Karl Hofer Gesellschaft in Berlin. Bluhm was a member of SOIL, an artist-run gallery in Seattle from 2010-2015, and received an Artist Trust GAP grant in 2012. In 2014, Susanna Bluhm was the recipient of the Neddy Artist Award in Painting.

Her paintings have been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally.  Bluhm’s works are included in the collections of the Microsoft Corporation, Capital One, The Allen Institute, Swedish Medical Center and the City of Seattle. Susanna Bluhm lives in Seattle with her wife and son.
