Rainforest Art Foundation is proud to have featured Susan Duke’s “Ephemeral Earth” as the signature art exhibition. The closing reception is taking place Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at the Marlene Yu Museum, 710 Travis Street, Shreveport, LA 71101 from 5:00PM-8:00PM during Downtown Artwalk North.
Susan Duke says of her art, "My paintings were created as an antidote to anxiety, but now I paint from a place of pure joy."
Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) recently awarded Susan Duke the "National Women in the Arts" honor for her 20-plus years in gallery and art shows, community service to further the arts, and permanent public art installation. She was recently chosen by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development to have her graphic design work translated into bas-relief decorative 5-by-8-foot medallions on the I-49 overpass piers through downtown Shreveport.
Director Stephanie Lusk said, "In many ways, Susan Duke's work resonates and matches so well with Marlene Yu and the Rainforest Art Foundation: sensitive to the beauty, power, and fragility of the earth, able to speak on its behalf through inspirational expressionist painting, and creative with gorgeous masterpieces you want to own… They make you want to jump right into their paintings."
