The Montauk Library’s “Virtual Visits” series with artists and musicians in their studios continues with “Rise With Radiance: Susan Schrott’s Journey as an Artist,” a 30-minute video by Peter Waldner and edited by John Kaasik. The video performance premieres Wednesday, December 1, at 7:30 p.m. and will be available for streaming on demand through December 31 via Montauk Library’s videos for general audiences at montauklibrary.org.

As a fiber and mixed media artist, Susan Schrott synthesizes her life experiences into deeply personal, uplifting images. In this video visit to her studio in Sag Harbor, Schrott describes how her exquisite hand dyed fabrics, intense threadwork, and embellishments, add visual texture and depth.

Schrott’s artwork has gained critical attention and numerous awards, including a first place and a prestigious Judge’s Choice award at the Pen and Brush in New York City. She has had several solo gallery exhibitions and exhibited nationally in group shows. Her artwork appears in permanent installations and private collections and several pieces have been selected for inclusion in quilting magazines and art books. Most recently, she is the author and illustrator of a book of reflections, “Rise with Radiance: 365 Days of Inspiration.”

The Montauk Library’s “Virtual Visits” series is made possible with funds provided by the Restart New York Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the governor and the State Legislature, and administered by The Huntington Arts Council.
