Think and Wonder: Paintings and Photographs by Suzanne Zimmerman

wonder-kid

Riverside Arts Center at Village Town Hall is pleased to present Think and Wonder, an exhibition of paintings and photographs by Suzanne Zimmerman. The exhibition is on view in the first floor lobby at Village Town Hall at 27 Riverside Rd, Riverside, IL, from June 22 through mid-September, 2017. Town Hall open hours are Mondays – Fridays, 9-5pm.

Suzanne Zimmerman’s paintings and photographs embrace the moment, exploring the joy and hope in youth through text and whimsical imagery. The works in “Think and Wonder” express the pleasures of simple things — popsicles, the family dog, sibling camaraderie — and exuberantly embrace a belief in positive thinking and hopefulness for the future. Zimmerman is a studio artist and illustrator with an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts & Media from Columbia College Chicago. She is also an art instructor at Riverside Brookfield High School, through which she finds much of her inspiration.
