Sue Clancy is having a one person art exhibit at the Aurora Gallery titled “For You by Sue the ABC’s: Art, Books, Cards”. The photo above and the video below shows a small selection of over 30 related art objects created by Sue that are available.
About the exhibit Sue says: “I see creativity as a very practical thing. Art adorns our walls. Books bemuse us. Cards connect us. For this exhibit I include all three of these essential elements of life because it’s been stressful lately and I am me. So I made these things for you.”
More details are available via the Aurora Gallery https://auroragalleryonline.com/ or by scrolling below.
Here’s a look at the exhibit installation at the Aurora Gallery. (There’s a fun “where’s Waldo” effect of being able to find the matches between the art, books and cards). A short look at the exhibit via an Instagram Reel is here: https://www.instagram.com/reel/ChuyWWoJPzP/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

Coffee Please – a dialect guide to the United States. Clancy has kept a sketchbook during travels over the years. To make “Coffee Please” she looked though her past sketchbooks noting all the requests for coffee, the verbal responses and the coffee cups received.
