The Gallery at R&F is pleased to present Susan Spencer Crowe’s solo exhibition, Encaustic/Form II. With some earlier work and new work, this sculpture exhibit expands on her March 2015 award-winning solo show, Encaustic/Form I, at the Woodstock Art Association Museum, Woodstock, NY. Encaustic/Form II follows Ms. Crowe’s sculptural explorations from 2012-2015. Beginning with pristine geometry and simple, glowing color, her work develops increasingly complex geometric form, and a riot of color and pattern. Ms. Crowe merges a crystalline, sophisticated urban sensibility with rich light, textures and form inspired by the Mid-Hudson Valley. This exhibition will be on view from May 2-July 20, 2015.

Ms. Crowe spent 40 years in New York City studying art and working for a number of the city’s leading art institutions before moving to the Mid-Hudson Valley. She earned an MFA from Vermont College of Norwich University and a BFA with honors from Pratt Institute. Ms. Crowe’s work has earned her many solo and group shows and won her many awards including two from the NY Foundation for the Arts. Her work is included in the Museum of Modern Art’s collection. Ms. Crowe has a stellar reputation as an artist, grant writer, college teacher, and civic activist for the visual arts.

The Gallery at R&F promotes contemporary uses of oil paint and encaustic. The Gallery is housed in R&F Handmade Paints, 84 Ten Broeck Avenue, in Mid-town, Kingston, NY 12401.
