Susan Marx is an abstract impressionist—her art comes from her radical amazement at the visual world around her and her need to turn that visual experience into paint.  

She is a painter who loves color.

Marx will be exhibiting five paintings, painted en plein air—or outdoors—in Montclair at the Ashok Jain Gallery, 58 West Hester Street in Manhattan. 

Her exhibit, scheduled for April 2 through April 27 will have its opening reception on Friday, April 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. 

“I love color. I see color everywhere. I am drawn to a specific spot and look and look and look. I load up my palette, pick up a brush, holding it as a conductor would hold his baton, and begin," Marx said. "At that point, I don't speak to the canvas, instead the canvas speaks to me. I smell the air and the landscape in front of me. I am transported." 

“Someone once said I work to the muse of Monet, Van Gogh and Joan Mitchell; I was thrilled," Marx said. "They helped guide me to develop my own personal visual expression and style to share with the world.”

Marx is represented by and exhibits at the Ashok Jain Gallery, 58 Hester Street, New York, NY 10002 and the Agora Gallery, 520 West 25 Street New York, NY 10001.  

She has also exhibited at Amsterdam Whitney Gallery, the Fox Gallery, the Keane Mason Gallery and The Emerging Collector in New York and in New Jersey at the Robin Hutchins Gallery, the Korby Gallery, the Hait Gallery, Nitsa Fine Arts, the Marino Gallery, The Art Gallery of South Orange, The Gaelen Gallery East, The Tenth Muse, and The Right Angle.  She exhibited in Paris at the Musée des Duncan.  

In Israel, she showed her work at the Museum of Printing Art in Safed and at the Artist's House in Jerusalem. Marx's paintings are in private collections in the United States and abroad. 

She lives in Orange and volunteers at the Montclair Art Museum and the Newark Museum.
