Susan Crum-Cox, landscape painter and former art educator, will serve as the season’s third Artist-in-Residence at Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Her residency, which will include a free and open painting demonstration and discussion, will run from April 16-29.
A resident of Lebanon, Crum-Cox is a former art instructor with stints teaching at secondary and post-secondary institutions. Her paintings include landscape and still life subjects addressed with bold brushstrokes and unusual color schemes. A previous Fallingwater Teacher Resident in Pennsylvania, Crum-Cox shows influence in her work from Impressionism and post-Impressionism, mixing imagined color schemes with fast-paced painting to capture spontaneity and freshness of topic.
During her residency, Crum-Cox will present one community program, free and open to the public.
Her program, a demonstration of her process for crafting a painting from within the park using her photograph, will be at 2 p.m., Sunday, April 23, in the Ozark Bathhouse. Upon completion of her residency, Crum-Cox will donate an original contribution to Hot Springs National Park’s permanent collection.
