“A Mother’s Tears” – Susan Levy brings her art to the MJC Gallery


“A Mother’s Tears” – Susan Levy brings her art to the MJC Gallery

The Modesto Junior College Department of Art presents “A Mother’s Tears” art show featuring the paintings of Susan Levy. The show opens on Monday, May 15, 2017 and runs through Thursday, June 1, 2017 in the MJC Art Gallery on the East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto. The gallery is open 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and admission is free.

A public reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, May 18, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in the MJC Art Gallery and Levy will speak at 6 p.m. The reception is also free of charge.

Levy received a Bachelor’s degree in arts with an emphasis in arts education and art therapy from Ohio State University. Levy calls herself “a process artist, not a product oriented artist.”

She goes on to state, “I hope I will inspire a person to think about their world. No one should be a victim of anything, from emotional abuse to sexual abuse, domestic abuse, war or murder. All life should be honored, and with that I dedicate this show in the memory of my special child, Chandra Levy.”

Levy’s daughter was missing for a year when her body was discovered in Rock Creek Park, Washington D.C. in 2000.
