Passion & Self-Discovery, Environmental Artist Susie Q Wood

She is known by many as the publisher of the Broward edition of Natural Awakenings. This September, experience another side of her as expressed through her environmental artwork and one-woman show at The Village Design Gallery and Atelier, 600 Breakers Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Opening night takes place from 6:00 to 10 p.m., September 1. Meet this local artist for a conversation about her Global TRASHformation movement, publishing experience and, of course, her artwork.

Wood will present a talk with slides, “Environmental Art Meets Ocean Conservancy”, at 6:30 p.m., on September 20, at the Gallery. SusieQ and the Gallery have partnered with the Surfrider Organization, pledging a portion of artwork sales to the local nonprofit chapter. Surfrider is promoting restaurants to rethink plastic straws and Styrofoam and has created a program whereby restaurants can be certified as “ocean-friendly”. The Wine Garden, a restaurant a few doors north of the Gallery, is planning to become ocean-friendly certified—something else to come out and celebrate. For more information call 954.302.2922.

The evening will be informative and inspirational, plus attendees have the opportunity to add to a collaborative artwork using cleaned local plastic or metal litter. For more information, visit

On September 13, at 6:30 p.m., Wood will present, “Exploring the Artist’s Mind, An Environmental Art Journey: Finding Purpose, a Path of Self-Discovery”, at Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st St., Pompano Beach, followed by a Q&A session. “Unearthed” is the name of the show and other artists will be in attendance.
