Artists of the Month:
Susan Sabino

During October 2018, the Library is pleased to feature Susan Sabino in our lobby gallery.

Susan Sabino is an artist whose work makes the effortless transition from mind to heart. Sabino, whose photographic roots stem from childhood, has worked and exhibited throughout New England and New York and is an emerging, sought-after talent. As a member of the Richmond-West Stockbridge Artists Guild, the GCCA Gallery in Catskill, NY, Windham Arts Alliance in Windham, NY, and Columbia County Plein Air, Susan’s work has found a strong following in the Northeast United States.

A Berkshire native, Sabino has served as a Radiologic Technologist since graduating from Darton College in 1996 and has worked at Berkshire Medical Center since her return to Western Massachusetts in 2006.

Susan’s work will be on display throughout the month of October. A public reception with the artist will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 12.

A portion of the artist’s sales from this show will be donated to Elizabeth Freeman Center in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
