United States

Suzy Hart landed in New York in 1980 to study painting, after having run away with Ringling Brothers Circus for two seasons. She first attended the Art Students League of NY in 1978 in spring 1978, while living on the circus train, parked on the Hudson River. Suzy became a Life Member of the ASL of NY after four years studying with Frank Mason and Gustav Rehberger. After starting a family, she moved to Bozeman, MT, finishing a BA in Sculpture and Art history at MSU.

She has received four honors from the Portrait Society of America including an Award of Excellence in the 2007 International Competition. She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America.

Hart has been published in As It Is: The Proceedings of the TRAC 2015 Conference and has presented at FACE2017,  FACE2018, and TRAC 2019. Her article “The Charleston Nine: Despair and the Power of the Sublime” appeared in Fine Art Connoisseur, October 2017.

Hart is deeply interested in what moves artists to make powerful 21st Century artworks, as well as the legacies that inform the new wave.
