Don't miss this collection of NEW WORK by painter Suyun Son!
"Art is a way to perceive the world. We are programmed to construct our world by functionality, its usefulness. This has been the dominating operating system from enlightenment to our post-modern social media world. We miss what is beautiful in our rush for what is useful for our consumption or production. So I break down the world to its fundamentals - colors, shapes, textures - to honor the world independent of our needs to justify our existence." ---Suyun Son

THE MEADOW SERIES
Peggy Sue Howard's series of meadows began decades ago when she followed a black bear into Crex Meadow in North West Wisconsin. Crex Meadow is a 30,000 acre protected wildlife area and is home to a variety of grasses, mostly sedge. The longer she works on the series, the more she is convinced the meadows are speaking to her. "The message is elusive, yet profound. It seems to be saying: step lightly on the earth, with respect and equality. My paintings express the hidden messages as I continue to try and decipher the code it is written in."
After a twelve year pause in exhibiting her art, Peggy Sue Howard created this group of work specifically for Lowber Gallery. Her colorful and peaceful images are acrylic on canvas and include triptychs and diptychs in a variety of sizes.
