Anne Neilson Fine Art is thrilled to share their findings on an artist whose work individualizes the expression of abstraction and details the momentary aspects of color: Susan Britt Macon. A Carolina native, Macon is known for her use of bold colors and ever evolving knowledge grown in the workshops and classes she has taken over the course of her artistic career. Inspired by the color and movement, her compositions are influenced by nature, interior design, photographs, people and personal experiences. The unencumbered joy that is felt by the viewers of her work is innumerable, and we are so glad you all will get to know just a bit more about this wonderful woman as you read our exclusive interview below!

This August, Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery will be featuring the collective works of several artists whose work exemplifies the locality of its makers and distinguishes the alumni of the McColl Center for Art + Innovation. This hub for creativity resides in a gothic-revived church that was built in 1926. After the church, a few years of vacancy and a fire that left the interior barren, it was bought in 1995 to become what it is today!
With the support of Hugh McColl and the Arts & Science Council, and with the vision of the FMK Architects and rebuilt by Rodgers Builders, the McColl Center for Art + Innovation opened it’s doors in 1999. Since then it “has become a nationally acclaimed contemporary art center dedicated to connecting art and artists with the community.”
The McColl alumni artists that will be in our upcoming exhibition are: Linda Luise Brown, Ivan Toth Depena, Diane Hughes, Carmella Jarvi and Terry Shipley. The featured local artists to accompany the McColl alumni are Kristen van Diggellen Sloan and Tony Griffin.
