Newport artist Sue Friesz will give a presentation during the Coastal Arts Guild’s next “Tea & Talk,” set for 2 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1, at the Newport Visual Arts Center.
The Coastal Arts Guild will present “Tea & Talk” with artist Sue Friesz, at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1, at the Newport Visual Arts Center.
Friesz describes herself as a Pacific Northwest artist who invents her own visual language from observations of nature. Her contemporary, interdisciplinary work in painting, drawing, sculpture and assemblage reveal her interest in the aesthetics and structure of trees and plants as well as in the built world. She is inspired by many sources, from her formative years in the Midwest enjoying the outdoors to her time experiencing other places and cultures while living in Paraguay, Brazil and Egypt. 
Friesz has exhibited in solo as well as group exhibitions. Her work has been in New American Paintings Exhibition in Print and can also be found in both corporate and private collections. She has won grants from the Avenue of the Arts Foundation and Public Arts Commission in Kansas City, Missouri, and a recipient of the Edwin Austin Abbey Memorial Fund, New York City. Friesz was accepted at Jentel Artist Residency in Wyoming beginning in May. She now maintains a studio in Newport and has an exhibition planned in September at Chessman Gallery in Lincoln City.
The Coastal Arts Guild invites people to meet Sue Friesz for “Tea & Talk.” She will bring examples of her work and talk about her inspirations from Missouri to Egypt to the Oregon coast.
The presentation takes place on the second floor of the VAC, located at 777 NW Beach Drive, Newport. Enter at the Nye Beach turnaround entrance.
