This exhibition shows the diversity and creativity of Susan Contreras, how she gets her inspiration from the animal kingdom and keeps her sense of humor in realizing beautiful and colorful works of art. Her sensitivity speaks to adults and children while establishing a nice dialogue with students. Several of the very large canvases have been utilized specifically to fit the Sandy Bell Gallery at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art.
