2017 Architects Conference and Expo & Excellence in Design Awards Speakers

Susan Gottlieb

Susan J Gottlieb introduces herself to us as a world traveler, painter and teacher. Her artwork focuses on cross-cultural symbolism. Her search for these “first times” has lead her across the world. Susan’s work is known for a vibrant use of color and texture. She enjoys working in acrylic, printmaking, and collage. Her artwork evolves in layers, adding collage bits and pieces from previous paintings and travels. Similar to an archaeological dig, there are tales in the layers. At the intersection of archetype and ethnic, her paintings show up through the creative process.

Susan has exhibited across the USA and is locally represented by Red Raven Art Company in Lancaster, PA. She has lived and studied in Rome, Italy and continues to travel extensively. Susan’s work is included in the book “Speaking for Themselves” The Artists of South Eastern Pennsylvania, by Daphne Landis. She is on faculty of the newly opened Stone Independent School in Lancaster where she instructs studio arts and art history.
