College of the Canyons’ Art Gallery will feature new art by Sue Tuemmler starting Oct. 14.
The collection of works entitled “Some Kind of Order that Ought to be Present” represents many original color paintings.
“In these abstract paintings, I build an arrhythmic structure of unexpected movement, surprising juxtapositions and channels that navigate the seen and the hidden,” Tuemmler said in a press release.
Besides being a painter, Tuemmler is also a retired teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District who hopes to teach students through her work.
“For me, teaching has a strong performance element, and the speed, spontaneity and improvisational nature of much of what I did in the classroom has informed my approach to the painting process,” said Tuemmler.
Many College of the Canyons art students have already gotten a chance to look at Tuemmler’s newest pieces.
Sue Tuemmler will be available for a special event, “A Conversation with the Artist”, Oct. 17 from 2 to 3 p.m. Tuemmler will be discussing her paintings and explaining how she joins “bold with mysterious, frenetic with calm, chaos with order, all while looking for the balance point that says, ‘alive.’”
The artist’s paintings will be on display at the College of the Canyons Art Gallery until Nov. 7.
Art gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Special viewing appointments can be made after hours by calling 661-362-3612.
The art gallery is open to the public.
