About Susan Alexander

Susan’s art career spans over 30 years and includes owning 3 galleries: Eclipse Gallery in Sonoma, Oberon Gallery in Napa and Outside the Lines Gallery in Glen Ellen. She has curated exhibitions, developed art seminars, taught art marketing and assisted collectors in building their collections.

Susan co-ordinated a seminar about Outsider Art with Creative Growth, in Oakland titled “Altered States - Alternate Worlds”. Her interests in art are broad and include, figurative, abstract, folk and art brut. All media are included, and color is a big factor in her selection. Ceramics has become a focus in the last 5 years.

“My philosophy centers on buying what you like. Your taste will develop and change over the years, and your horizons will broaden the more you expose yourself to every kind of art. Your eye will become more discerning and critical as you view and learn about different art forms. Don’t forget humor in art. It can be very infectious and give you a lift on days that may seem overwhelming.

I have collected contemporary painting, sculpture, world folk art and art brut for over 35 years.
