March and April Displaying Artist: Susan Hebenstreit

Join Susan at the Library for an open house on Saturday March 19 from 12pm to 2pm.

Susan Hebenstreit has been painting for decades. Her disciplines are watercolor, pastel, oil, and acrylic.  She is also a plein aire painter and a muralist. 
 


In addition to exhibiting her work, she teaches private students as well as teaching at Northern Essex Community College.


 
Her personal favorite style is that of the Dutch Masters.  The glazing process, one layer of paint over another, gives a recognizable glow that cannot be achieved without patience. 
 

She has also participated in the following juried shows: The Guild of Boston Artists; New England Watercolor Society; Pastel Society of New Hampshire; and Newburyport Art Association.
