The Little Falls Public Library is pleased to announce its upcoming art exhibition, Progression by local artist Susan Canorro, in the public library’s Community Room gallery space. The show will run from January 13th to February 16th, free and open to the public during the library’s regular operating hours. The library’s Community Room is a handicapped-accessible facility.

Ms. Canorro began her journey with watercolor painting roughly two years ago. Susan feels that each piece she creates teaches her something new that she can utilize in the creation of her next painting. Her favorite part of the creative process is when a detail presents itself organically to her and, by accident, ends up working wonderfully. Susan has also made use of household items to create unique effects in watercolor works. Some of the unorthodox material applications have included such media as saran wrap, salt, and even rubber cement. Trial and error have been a key component of her learning process, for certain. Many times a certain color will be the inspiration for a piece, and the ensuing composition will form from that initial seed of a single choice in hue.

Currently, Susan is exploring abstract art through the use of acrylics on canvas. She has enjoyed the creative process of her art and now looks at the world with different eyes, through the lens of artistic experience, as she now sees how inspiration can pop up in the most unexpected of places. Encouraged by local arts groups, Susan has displayed her works at the Little Falls Art Walk, at the Mohawk Valley Center of the Arts, at the MWPI Sidewalk Festival, and now currently with this installment in the Little Falls Library “Art in Public Spaces” exhibition series.
