Then And Now | Suzanne Joy Teune - Opening Reception

suzannejoyteune_web.jpg

Suzanne Joy Teune is a visual artist based out of Asheville, North Carolina. Her mission is to live and create art from the impulses of her heart and to be a healing presence in the world through art. 

“I paint from my heart. Working from the subconscious is important to me in my work because of its authenticity and healing potential. My paintings are an outpouring of my healing journey. What I have learned over the years of struggling with feelings of depression and self-doubt is that connecting with and trusting my heart is the only way to find freedom. I make my art the same way. I let what wants to be made unfold onto the fabric.  When i make art, I am constantly checking in with myself and asking myself questions like, "Do i feel excited about this?",  "Do i feel that inside my body?",  "Am i bored?",  "Does this feel like a chore or does this feel meaningful and playful?" I feel like this is an ongoing and evolving process.  It is the same process that life offers us.  It takes courage sometimes to do what we feel our heart is asking us to do. Questions come up like, "Will this sell?", "Does anybody actually care about this?"  In life the questions that come up are, "What will people think?" "Will they be mad at me?" "What will happen if I do this even though its breaking the 'rules' of my family, my society, the expectations of me etc?" I feel like my art making process is a microcosm of life in this way, like a little laboratory.  

            When I moved to Asheville, NC from the Chicago suburbs, I found a rich inspiring community of people wise with appreciation for the earth and plant dyes. I found myself fascinated and subsequently began experimenting. It is such a gift to be able to paint with dyes straight from the earth that I foraged myself.”

Screen Print Demo & Artist Talk from Zeb Love

zeb01.jpg

Join us November 3rd as we host a silkscreen print demo and artist talk from Zeb Love. Love has worked with lamplight for about a year and a half, and I’ve known him for over ten years. I’ve seen Zeb develop his career as a printmaker, diligently perfecting his ability to design flyers for bands such as The Avett Brothers, Foo Fighters, and Pearl Jam.

Zeb plans to share some of the behind-the-scenes work behind his prints, while making one in Lamplight that will be sold at the gallery. We’ll also have some Q and A throughout the demonstration. 

This event will fall on the last weekend of his solo exhibition, “It Takes Time.” Complimentary drinks and snacks will be available at the demo – hope to see you!
