December 1 2023 - January 28 2024

Place As Memory

'Reverie 1', Charcoal & Watercolour  on Two Rivers Paper, 2020

Carrie Haddad Gallery is pleased to present “Place as Memory”, a group exhibit exploring the interpretation of landscape through memory. As place is reinterpreted by the mind, details are altered, and characteristics become imbued with an artist’s personal style or emotional outlook. Featured artists, Richard Britell, Sue Bryan, Shawn Dulaney, Susan Hope Fogel, Eric Lindbloom, Ricardo Mulero, Linda Newman Boughton and Leigh Palmer highlight this process with ethereal landscapes, abstracted by the mind’s eye as if from a distant memory. The show will be on view December 1 – January 31. We are unable to host an opening reception at this time, but we are open to the public with easy protocols in place to keep you safe during your visit!

'A Quiet Respite'

Carrie Haddad Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibit entitled A Quiet Respite, featuring new work by gallery artists who have dedicated their artistic practice to capturing our natural world. As another decade in the 21st century comes to an end, technology now finds itself ingrained in nearly every facet of daily life. When the weight of such connectivity becomes too great, oftentimes, one seeks solace in nature, whether it be in the backyard or a distant getaway. The landscapes highlighted in this exhibit, both real and imagined, are realized for their ability to provide just that; a respite away from it all. Paintings by David Konigsberg, Jane Bloodgood-Abrams, Harry Orlyk, Tracy Helgeson, Judy Reynolds and Eileen Murphy will be on view alongside intricate charcoal drawings by Sue Bryan. The show will be on view November 13 – January 5, with an artists’ reception on Saturday, Nov. 16, 5-7pm. All are welcome to attend.

'Waif', Charcoal & Carbon on Arches mounted on Wood, 10 x 10 in, 2017

Danese Corey Gallery

I am delighted to share that my drawing 'Waif' has been selected as a finalist for the Manifest Grand Jury Prize, Season 14.  The 52 finalists represent the highest ranking artworks out of roughly 8,200 separate works submitted for consideration across 21 group and 9 solo exhibitions during Manifest's 14th season. Based on jury scores the highest scoring work from each exhibit of the season is added to the pool of candidates for the annual Grand Jury Prize. Juries for the exhibits are conducted 'blind' without reference to the artist's personal info, location, or background. Jurors are volunteer experts in art and design from across the United States, including professors, working artists, curators, gallery directors, and others qualified and trusted to provide sound objective judgment of the works provided. Each jury usually consists of at least 5 jurors, and sometimes more than 10. Jury groups are shuffled and changed from exhibit to exhibit, so a pattern does not result. 

I am honored to have my work featured on the cover of Manifest Gallery's 12th International Drawing Annual.  For the INDA 12 Manifest received 1540 submissions from 476 artists from 42 states, one U.S. territory, and 28 countries. The publication will include 120 works by 76 artists from 20 states and 11 countries. Written works by Patricia Emison and Eric Rennie are also included.

Eleven professional and academic advisors qualified in the fields of art, design, and art history juried this 12th International Drawing Annual. The process of selection was by anonymous blind jury, with each jury member assigning a quality rating for artistic merit to each work submitted. The entries receiving the highest average combined score will be included in this publication. 

This Online Supplemental Resource will provide information and details of sample works for each artist included in the publication by the time the publication is released to the public in late 2018 or early 2019. 

Opening Reception November 3, 6 - 9pm

In its 28th year running, this December the Annual Holiday Miniatures Show at Abend is an exhibition for everyone.

The exhibition will also afford art collectors the opportunity to add some very prominent signatures to their personal gallery at more modest prices. 

Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to announce its Summer Juried Show featuring 34 artists from all over the United States.

Delighted to have one of my 'tinys' featured in a new book on drawing written by artist Selwyn Leamy and published by Laurence King Publishing in London.  My section is titled 'Be Dark and Moody'...!

'Arboreal', Manifest Gallery, OH, November 9 - December 8 2017

Trees cover about 30% of the Earth's land surface. There are roughly 400 trees per every living human on Earth. 12,000 years ago, before people developed agriculture, there were twice as many trees. 

If there is any natural form beyond the ocean that is more symbolic of nature as the origin of humanity, it is trees. Both are powerful beyond our reckoning in their own ways, and each provides an unappreciated resource, assumed, until most recently, to be infinite. Trees are the lungs of the Earth, and thereby an extension of the lungs of any breathing creature, including us.

How do artists interpret the role or form of the tree? What meaning is derived from a creative response to this force of nature? How are the fates of trees, forests, and mankind intertwined, and how is this expressed through art? How do tree-based materials, and therefore trees themselves, influence the artwork that they are used to make? Manifest invited artists working in any media to share works that either directly or indirectly address the topic of trees or related aspects. The theme was open to wide interpretation, and works were expected to explore various avenues of thought around the tree, its dependents, or its wood.

For this exhibit 238 artists from 44 states, Canada, the Czech Republic, Israel, Lebanon, and The Netherlands submitted 754 works. Eighteen works by the following 16 artists from 9 states and England were selected by a blind jury process for presentation in the gallery and the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication.

Hudson Valley Landscapes, Carrie Haddad Gallery

Hudson, New York, November 15 - December 31 2017

Carrie Haddad Summer Group Show

Hudson, New York, June 21 - August 6 2017

"The center gallery will feature a selection of works on paper by several gallery artists.  The moody charcoal landscapes in miniature format by Sue Bryan have delighted art lovers since she joined the roster in 2016.  With an exquisitely detailed use of charcoal and carbon pencil, Bryan achieves luminous displays of light cast onto mingled trees, dirt paved country roads, and forest vignettes. The postage stamp- sized landscapes have the capacity to engage as much as the larger sized drawings, demonstrating the power between subject and scale."


'A Long Way From Home' brings together the work of Irish born Sue Bryan and American born Michelle Conway, two artists whose fascination with memory and place may be traced in their respective relocations across The Atlantic.

Now based in New York, Bryan’s atmospheric miniature drawings in charcoal and carbon refer to her memories of growing up in Ireland. The softness of these natural scenes express an obscurity and cloudiness caused by factors relating both to the weather and in our ability to conjure a memory in the mind’s eye. In her choice of charcoal as medium, Bryan’s natural scenes are created with an implied sense of origin. She describes: ‘Much of drawing’s appeal to me lies in its very constraint, in its simplification, in the reduction of nature’s macrocosm to the coal-black char of organic matter. For me, the act of drawing is an end in itself." - Sue Bryan.

Muted and soft in tone, Conway’s landscapes in oil depict vacant scenes that might normally be frequented by people. These spaces of leisure, habitation and of in-between waiting spaces are evocative of 1960s snapshots and contain traces of her American heritage. The artist describes: ‘painting reminds me of what no longer exists. It is my way of experiencing the world as it is’. Splashes of colour are often picked out within these familiar spaces, as if to further aid the memory or update them to the present day.

Presenting the viewer with these scenes of non-specific locality, A Long Way From Home invites us to consider our own sense of belonging and shared nostalgia.

‘A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image’

  • Joan Didion

Royal Hibernian Academy 187th Annual Exhibition

May 23 - August 12 2017

I am delighted to share that two of my drawings have been accepted into the RHA's 187th Annual Exhibition, which opens in Dublin, Ireland on May 23 and runs until August 12.


Abend Gallery, Denver, CO, June 15 - July 8 2017

Curated by Dina Brodsky & Trex Lexington

I am delighted to participate in 'Palette', an exhibition to be held in the Abend Gallery, Denver, CO, from June 15 until July 8.  As I don't use a palette in the traditional sense of the word, I chose to interpret the definition of the word 'palette' figuratively, as in the variety of techniques, or range of colors an artist may use.  My process is one of building up tones and textures using a technique of charcoal and carbon combined.  This process yields a wonderful range of blacks and grays that vary in density and transparency as much as in tonality. 

'Exquisite Abandon : Contemporary Miniature Works', Laguna College of Art & Design, CA, April 4 - 28 2017

Laguna College of Art + Design is proud to present Exquisite Abandon: Contemporary Miniature Works, an exhibition of works of art rendered in exquisite miniature by Megan Aline, Dina Brodsky, Sue Bryan, Christopher Charles Curtis, Thomas Doyle, Alia El-Bermani, Grandmondo and Robin Smith.

Each of the more than carefully crafted miniature drawings, paintings and sculptures in Exquisite Abandon offers a voyeuristic gaze into quotidian memories and dreams, many appearing as eerily dashed or in decay, but always compelling and rendered with meticulous proficiency.

Black & White Show, Salmagundi Club, New York City, February 6 - March 2 2017

I am delighted to have a piece in the Salmagundi Club's historical Black & White Show. The first Black & White Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club took place in 1878, only a few short years after the Club was formed. It provided a rich catalogue of the artists of the day, and interestingly enough, exhibitors did not originally need to be members to participate. As the public's interest in illustration grew, these exhibitions provided artwork for a variety of purposes, and many of the works initially shown in these shows went on to be published in the burgeoning magazine market of the late 19th century. The "Black and White" has taken place yearly since then.

'Small is Beautiful', Le Salon Vert, Geneva, Switzerland

'Smart Dust', Group Show, Sla307, 307 West 30th Street, New York, NY, December 9 - January 7

I am delighted to have a piece included in 'Smart Dust', a group exhibition presented by Sla307. The term "Smart Dust" was dreamed up by UC Berkeley Professor Kris Pister in the 1990s. In this futuristic conception, the planet is sprinkled with zillions of micro/nano electro mechanical systems (MEMS), which monitor, detect, and interpret everything on Earth: light, temperature, vibration, magnetism, weight, chemicals, and, by extension, human thoughts, feelings, and desires. In a poetic way, this neural dust acts like the planet's central nervous system. In a more dystopian interpretation, it can become an ultimate totalitarian mind control machine. Works are no bigger than 8 in x 8 in - with the idea of creating tension between a minimum of size and a maximum of contributors. The smallness of each part allows others to coexist in the same universe. 

'Inside Outside', Carrie Haddad Gallery, Hudson, New York, October 19 - December 4 2016

  Carrie Haddad Gallery is pleased to present INSIDE OUTSIDE, an exhibit that merges unique perspectives of the natural and man made landscapes. The tradition of artists documenting their environment is one that transcends time and trend. Whether it be a reproduction of an iconic Hudson River view, the Brooklyn bridge, or the living room at grandma’s house, these works reveal the power of the landscape to transport the viewer to a time and place while inspiring a feeling that is at once personal and universal. This group exhibit will showcase paintings, drawings, collages and photography by 10 artists, opening October 19th – December 4th. A reception for the artists will be held Saturday, October 22nd from 5-7pm.

Fresh Paint Magazine, Issue 15, October 2016

The Williams Prize in Drawing for Emerging Artists is a celebration of drawing as a critical element in contemporary art making and as an art form with powerful expressive possibilities.

Wyeth and Childe Hassam.

'DRAWN', 3rd Annual International Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing, Manifest Gallery, OH

April 15 - May 13 2016

I am delighted to have two pieces included in this exhibition.  'DRAWN' called for artists to submit works of drawing in any media relevant to the practice (including non-traditional approaches), any style, and any genre (fine art, illustration, design, conceptual, realism, etc.).

For this exhibit 422 artists from 43 states, Washington D.C., and 16 different countries submitted 1294 works for consideration.

186th Annual Exhibition, Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA), Dublin, March 21 - June 11 2016

I am honored that my drawing 'Time and Place III' has been selected for the RHA's 186th Annual Exhibition in my hometown of Dublin, Ireland.  The Royal Hibernian Academy was founded in 1823 and the original purpose-built building, designed by its second President, Francis Johnson (1760-1829) in 1825, was situated on Lower Abbey Street. Academy House, most of its contents and the entire annual exhibition were destroyed by fire during the Easter Rising in 1916. To commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising, the 186th RHA Annual Exhibition will return to its original time of the year and will be open to the public from March 22nd until June 11th.

Historic Black & White Show, Salmagundi Club, New York City, January 18 - February 4 2016

The galleries are open to the public daily,  Mon-Fri  1-6pm, Sat & Sun 1-5pm. 

The first Black & White Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club took place in 1878, only a few short years after the Club was formed.

7th Annual Drawing Discourse, S.Tucker Cooke Gallery, UNC Asheville, January 15 - February 12 2016

I am delighted to announce that my drawing 'The Memory of Trees' has been selected for the 7th Annual Contemporary Drawing Exhibition at the University of North Carolina, Asheville by juror Edgar Jerins.  The University of North Carolina Asheville seeks to examine drawing as it is practiced and defined by today's artists.  Such an exhibition will demonstrate the continued significance of drawing through the use of conventional and innovative methods.

'Radical Inventions', Carrie Haddad Gallery, Hudson, New York, 

November 18 - December 27 2015

"A native of Ireland, Sue Bryan explores the memories of youth rooted in her homeland's landscape.  Employing charcoal on both paper and panel, these moody and misty studies remind us that the water-locked terrain is not always sunny and green.  Exquisite detail found in each tree branch or mass of tall grasses lining the horizon dominates the foreground.  Light emulates from the background attempting to penetrate the density of opaque cloud cover.  Bryan's small scale drawings convey an intimate and highly personal sense of place and belonging."

Carrie Haddad Gallery is pleased to present “Radical Inventions”, an exhibit featuring the work of six gallery artists.  Painters David Konigsberg and Ralph Stout will show recent work alongside gallery favorite of fellow artist, Shawn Snow.
