Painting by Susan Rouillier
This November, Susan Rouillier will be displaying “Coastal Views – Paintings and Photographs” in the Small Room. This exhibition features a series of photographs of birds in their natural habitats and paintings of landscapes, birds, fish, and crabs in coastal areas completed over the last six years. Susan Rouillier has been drawn to nature all her life. At the University of Melbourne she was a Commonwealth Scholar and did invertebrate research at Wilson’s Promontory in Australia. She graduated with a Biology degree and went on to teach in Australia, Japan and the United States. Rouillier set up a joint ecological project between Meiji Gankuen High School in Kitakyushu, Japan and The School of Math and Science in Mobile, Alabama, funded by the Fulbright Master Teacher Program. Today Rouillier lives by the water on Mobile Bay where she paints and photographs the natural world of the vast delta estuary. “Painting makes me feel as vibrantly alive as the area that I portray,” she explains Rouillier’s exhibit will be on display at MAC during the month of November. Meet the artist on ArtWalk night, November 11th, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. The gallery will be open from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM on weekdays.
