About the moderator
Sue Charles, BFA Painting, Boston University College of Fine Art
Sue has been painting for twenty years and has taught painting since 2002. She emphasizes teaching the acquisition of observation skills—perceiving a painting as a series of abstract hierarchal relationships , and trusting and encouraging each artist's original work methods and expression. Sue has won numerous awards for her paintings—most recently for best oil in the NAA Regional Shows 2016 and 2017. Sue is represented by Powers Gallery in Acton, Alpers Gallery in Andover, Islesford Artists Gallery on Little Cranberry Island, ME and the South Street Gallery in Hingham. She was an artist-in-residence at Acadia National Park in 2018 and works in studio 110 at 14 Cedar Street Studios in Amesbuty, MA.
