Bellarmine Hall Galleries

April 5 – July 27, 2024

In this exhibition of recent work, Chamlin explores ideas about color theory and light through a series of landscape and interior stills. For each of her paintings, Chamlin sets a highly specific palette; experimentation within this limited range then guides her decisions about process and pictorial space.

Suzanne Chamlin is Associate Professor of Studio Art in the Department of Visual & Performing Arts at Fairfield University. Her drawings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Nelson Atkins Museum. Chamlin has attended numerous residencies including at the Albers Foundation and Yaddo. Chamlin received her B.A. from Barnard College and M.F.A. from Yale University.

“The Impermanent Collection V, unites divergent directions whose only commonality is the medium of paint… included in “The Impermanent Collection V” are Michele Araujo, Suzanne Chamlin, Greg Kwiatek, Susan Mayr and Hilda Shen. If you’re in the neighborhood and you want to talk painting, stop by any weekend”

By Phyllis Braff

"All four artists are showing multiple approaches to their work...Suzanne Chamlin's landscape studies in India ink have a robust freedom and touch of magic vision that is engaging. At times they seem to be exercises in how we might imagine and conceptualize in black and white."
