For three decades, Susan Brenner has been creating paintings, installations and visual-textual works that offer carefully crafted examinations of complex topics. Her themes have included feminine identity, the language of gesture, migration and change. Her work has been featured at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the Columbia Museum of Art, the North Carolina Museum of Art, and the Mint Museum of Art. She has received a Pollock-Krasner grant, and has also received a Southern Arts Federation/NEA Regional Fellowship Award in Painting and Works on Paper, two North Carolina Artist’s Fellowships, and a Regional Artist Project Grant from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Arts & Science Council. She received her M.F.A. from the University of Southern California and is Associate Professor Emeritus in the Department of Art and Art History at UNC Charlotte.

Brenner is a painter who uses photography, digital imaging, drawing, and installation to create her work. She recently completed public art for the Charlotte, NC light rail extension. These multi-colored glass panel walls, inspired by the branches of Charlotte’s tree canopy, cast shifting colored shadows in the elevator/stairway towers at two stations.
