Arts Festival Reading, presented by GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, welcomes thousands of visitors to explore our historic, post-industrial campus and immerse themselves in the arts. Now in it’s 7th year, Arts Festival Reading aims to act as a conduit for established and emerging artists to network and sell their work, while showcasing the processes of making through live art demonstrations and hands-on workshops. The two-day event also features live music and performances on the Sly Fox Stage, locally-sourced food and craft beverages by Belly: Kitchen & Drinkery, and much more.

I am a pure painter and until recently a designer, director, sculptor, and printmaker. All of these have helped guide my decisions as a painter from my early conceptual installations to my forays into esoteric knowledge as a director. It can take a very long time to gain the technique and exquisite craftsmanship that an artist needs.

Susan Shipley is an abstract painter. She paints spontaneously. While enjoying the work of many abstract artists, she finds that the consistency and sameness, while calming, offers little surprise. She prefers to work spontaneous using dramatic colors in a dynamic fashion. The end results fall in the category of abstract expressionism.  Rather than providing calm, she prefers to provoke an immediate emotional response.  A short while ago, she fused and slumped glass creating 3 dimensional work; however, of late she just paints. She received a Ph.D. later in life and practices psychology in the schools with children. Susan is a Baby Boomer and a happy grandma.
