Susan Headley van Campen

American (1951)

About the artist:

“I like to paint what I see that strikes me at the moment. Things that don’t last long – like flowers and skies, water, the sunrise, clouds, approaching storms, a dandelion, an open tulip just before the petals fall off – a poppy bud before it bursts … as simple as possible, without laboring. I am trying to capture the color and shape the first time, that’s all.”— Susan Headley Van Campen Education 1970-1974 Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts – Philadelphia, PA 1968-1969 Moore College of Art – Philadelphia, PA Solo Exhibitions 2001, 1997, 1994, 1988, 1985, 1984 Gross McCleaf Gallery – Philadelphia, PA 2002, 2001, 2000, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 91, 90, 89, 88 South Wharf Gallery – Nantucket, MA 2000 Firehouse Gallery – Damariscotta, ME 1999 Gallery 357 – Rockland, ME 1998 Somerville Manning Gallery – Greenville, DE 1996, 1983 Malton Gallery – Cincinnati, OH 1996 Geary Gallery – Darien, CT 1996 Round Top Center for the Arts – Damariscotta, ME 1995 Michaelian and Kohlberg – New York, NY 1995 Tioga County Council on the Arts – Owego, NY 1995, 1994, 1993, 1992, 1991 Leighton Gallery – Blue Hill, ME 1992, 1984 Maine Coast Artists Gallery – Rockport, ME 1989, 1983 Allport Gallery – San Francisco, CA 1987 Bayview Gallery – Portland, ME 1986 University of Maine at Farmington 1984 Contemporary Gallery – Dallas, TX Selected Group Exhibitions 2003 "Six Women Engage the Maine Landscape", Center for Maine Contemporary Art – Rockport, ME 2002 Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, PAFA Alumni Invitational – Philadelphia, PA 2002, 2001, 2000 Lewiston-Auburn College – ME 1999 Firehouse Gallery – Damariscotta, ME 1998-2000 US Embassy – Prague 1998 Between the Muse – Rockland, ME 1997 Clark Gallery – Lincoln, MA 1998, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 90, 89 Pandion Gallery – Fishers Island, NY 1995 Prince Street Gallery, Still Life Invitational – New York, NY 1994 Philadelphia Art Alliance – Jimmy Lueders Collection 1994 Landscape Works by Women Artists, Bryn Mawr College – PA 1993 Priscilla Saunders Gallery – York Harbor, ME 1992 Six Women Artists, Gross McCleaf Gallery – Philadelphia, PA 1992 Portland Stage – Portland, ME 1991 Spruce Point III – Boothbay, ME 1993, 1992, 1991, 1990, 1989 Bayview Gallery – Portland and Camden, ME 1989 October, Bridgewater State College – MA 1989 Currents – Nakatsu, Japan 1989 May, Gallery Fortene – Newbury St. Boston, MA 1989 June, "From the Garden", Maine Coast Artists Gallery – Rockport, ME 1988 Farnsworth Art Museum – Rockland ME 1994, 1993, 1992, 1990, 1988 Gross McCleaf Gallery – Philadelphia, PA 1988 Allport Gallery – San Francisco, CA 1988 Maine Coast Artists Gallery, CA – Rockport, ME 1987 Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, "The Flower" – Loretto, PA 1987 Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, "Nature Morte" – Loretto, PA 1986 Francesca Anderson Gallery – Newbury St, Boston, MA 1986 Virginia Intermont College – Bristol, VA 1985 Allport Associates Gallery, "Interior Exterior Space" – San Fransisco, CA 1984 Woodmere Art Museum – Philadelphia, PA 1984 Cunningham Memorial Gallery – Bakersfield, CA 1983 The Noyse Museum – Oceanville, NJ Selected Collections Citibank – NY Farnsworth Art Museum – Rockport, ME Spencer Stuart – Boston, MA State Museum of Pennsylvania – Harrisburg, PA Nynex Readers Digest Association Inc. – NY FMR Corp.
