Exhibit in Pattee

An exhibition of works by Susan C. Struble will be on display in Pattee Library's Lending Service Gallery from May 1 through 31.

Although her work is semi-realistic, she tries to transcend the object and focus on colors, forms, shapes and lines.

Ms. Struble studied art at Penn State after graduating from Carleton College in 1960. Drawing and painting are her hobbies as she continues a volunteer career in art therapy.
