Susan Knight: The Power of Water in Art
Wednesday, March 27 • 2:00 p.m.

Water is complex: it is a fractal. “It’s one thing to read about aspects of water and quite another to discover them for myself through art.” Omaha-based artist Susan Knight devotes exclusive attention to the stories and science of water and the land around it by building constructions with her hand-cut materials.

Exhibiting nationally and internationally, her work has been featured in SciArt Magazine, Sculpture Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, and appears in the book, Art Inspired by Science: Imagining the Natural World, by Robert Louis Chianese. Knight is a recipient of a Nebraska Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship, and was awarded art-science residencies at AS IF Center, North Carolina; The Colorado Art Ranch and The Nature Conservancy, Hayden, Colorado; and art residencies at Ragdale Foundation, Lake Forest, Illinois; and the International School of Art, Montecastello di Vibio, Italy. She earned a B.F.A. degree from Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Indiana; and attended The University of Notre Dame; The Glassell School of Art, Houston; and the School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

Presented in conjunction with A River Runs Through It.

Humanities Nebraska provides major funding for this program. Humanities Nebraska receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Nebraska State Legislature, Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and private donations.
