Suzanne Accetta has been drawing and painting for over thirty-five years. Accetta’s paintings are exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally in public, private and corporate collections as well as juried exhibitions. In May 2011, her series African Rhythms in Paint was the inaugural exhibition for the new Homeport Gallery at the Lincoln Theatre. Accetta was featured in Columbus Monthly, American Artist Magazine, Watercolorpainting.com and in the book The Complete Colored Pencil Book. Her biography is included in Who’s Who In American Art. Recently, Accetta was selected to appear in two publications; The Best Of Worldwide Watermedia and The Best Of America Portraits And Figures. Presently she works primarily in watercolor and in all her art, she tries to emphasize character, expression and feeling. Calvin J. Goodman wrote in the July, 1989 issue of American Artist Magazine, “Accetta tries to employ some narrative elements in every painting. She is a keen student of faces and human anatomy. As a result, her work shows great empathy for her subjects.” Accetta is a much sought after lecturer, demonstrator, juror, and teacher. She has illustrated children’s books for Continental Press and teaches drawing and painting at Otterbein University in the Department of Theatre and Dance.
