Artist: Susan Worsham

Project:  Bittersweet on Bostwick Lane

Description: Bittersweet on Bostwick Lane explores the landscape of the artist’s childhood in all its loss and sweetness, her own memories inspired by and intertwined with stories told by her oldest neighbor, the last person to see her brother alive before his suicide. Native flora, the neighbor’s homemade strawberry jam, the brother’s last piece of buttered toast, and a white bedspread are thematic emblems in an imaginative family album.
