Susan Kelly at the Starving Artist Café

Fine art senior Susan Kelly is currently having her art displayed in the Starving Artist Cafe’s Gallery, Franklin Square, NY.

About a year ago, Susan went by the Starving Artist Café for lunch and happened to notice the gallery space near the entrance. “I asked the owner who was exhibiting and how I could get my own exhibit” she explains. “He then pulled out a small notebook and took down my information, phone number and what kind of work I do.”
After a while, Susan started to forget about it. But one day the owner called her saying that the person who was supposed to exhibit backed out and that she was next. “So I packed out my car and was hanging the next day.”

At the moment, Susan is preparing for her senior show at LIU Post in the Hillwood Student Art League gallery. The reception of her thesis will be on March 18th.

Regarding the show at the Starving Artist Café, she was never really worried about what to show since she is constantly creating new works. “I did not have a specific theme for the show. I was thinking of this show almost as a preview for myself for what my senior show would look like. I got to see what my work looks like hanging all together and how much room it takes up. Now I have time to work on what I think my work needs as a whole.”

The show at the Starving Artist Café will be up until Sunday, February 15th and the reception will be tomorrow Thursday, February 12th, starting at 5 PM. All are welcome!
