Artist's Reception: Sunday May 19

Join us as we welcome local artist Sue Parman to RCC with a reception Sunday, May 19 from 3:00 - 5:00pm in our dining room where her works are currently on display. All ages are welcome and this event is open to the public.

Sue Parman is an anthropologist and award-winning poet, playwright, writer, and artist interested primarily in storytelling. After thirty years of university teaching in southern California, she moved to Oregon in search of water (literally and metaphorically). As an anthropologist she constantly sketched in travel journals and photographed people in the Scottish Outer Hebrides who haunt her current portraits.

From naturalistic portraits to stylized masks, she explores the terrain of human identity and the contrast and conflict between interior and exterior.  The techniques she uses reveal cracks in the self as she tries to convey how thin-skinned humans are, and how fragile.

Sue’s works are available for purchase directly from the artist.
