Bookish Facebook – HD 720p

“Susan Hensel’s latest work is a continuation and evolution of her renowned artist books. In the new online series titled Bookish, she presents fabric and multi-media pieces that depict the book liberated by Hensel’s vision and veneration, picking up themes from past work and developing fresh perspectives. The series represents the deep reservoir of ideas and approaches born out of a long relationship between an artist and her subject matter.”-

Jonathon M Clark, independent critic

As the art exhibition world remains sleepy during the pandemic, waking up oh so slowly around the nation, artists and galleries are moving exhibitions and sales online.  So, too, is the textile artist Susan Hensel, introducing new, never before seen artwork to the online audience. BOOKISH will open simultaneously on December 18, 2020, at www.susanhenselprojects.com and https://www.artsy.net/susan-hensel-gallery 

WATCH FOR IT!  New bookish artwork will be introduced to the world at that time!

Susan Hensel Gallery

The focus of Susan Hensel Gallery is on compelling objects, meaningful use of materials, and engaging sculpture. It is a gallery where experimental ideas and works of the hand join to create unique sensory experiences. Opened September 10th, 2004 Susan Hensel Gallery is a gallery/ workspace presenting 5-6 shows per year in an intimate space, with hardwood floors and high tin ceilings.

In 2013 the interior space reverted to a working studio for Susan Hensel where she continues to work on small and largescale artwork that engages both sculptural and cultural space. You can find her current work at www.SusanHenselProjects.com. The Susan Hensel Gallery is now both a large window gallery on Cedar Avenue, the main thoroughfare in south Minneapolis and an online venture represented on Artsy.net.
