Studio B celebrated their latest exhibit opening on Friday titled O’Suzannah! The display features only the artwork of artists whose first name is “Susan.” “The only thing that’s the same is their names” said Susan Biebuyck, Studio B.
So where would an idea like this come from? We asked Gallery Director Susan Biebuyck how she gathered eight artist named Susan to display their work.
It turns out the O’Suzannah! story is just as interesting as the exhibit itself. Biebuyck found out back in December of 2016 that one of the artist set to use the gallery in March backed out. This left a signification void in the calendar. Her initial idea and solution was to host a solo show. However she didn’t have time to put everything together in such a short time.
Help was needed, so while asking her fellow artists, the light bulb went off. Center the exhibit theme around local artists who’s name is “Susan”. Before she knew it Biebuyck had eight “Susan’s” lined up to share the space.
Over 150 people showed up to support the opening of O’Suzannah!. Walking through the gallery you will see everything from paintings, pottery to ceramics in all different styles and forms.
The exhibit runs until April 16, 2017. Studio B is located at 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA.
