Mobile, AL – The University of South Alabama Marx Library is pleased to present a new art exhibit by Susan Rouillier, entitled, “Paintings and Photographs”. The exhibit will be on display in the Mary Elizabeth and Charles Bernard Rodning Gallery of Art on the 3rd floor of the Marx Library from March 1 – April 30, 2017. There will be a "Meet the Artist Reception” on Sunday, March 5, from 3:00-5:00. The reception is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Ms. Rouillier has been drawn to nature all her life. At the University of Melbourne she was a Commonwealth Scholar and did invertebrate research at Wilson’s Promontory in Australia. She graduated with a Biology degree and went on to teach in Australia, Japan and the United States. Rouillier set up a joint ecological project between Meiji Gankuen High School in Kitakyushu, Japan and The School of Math and Science in Mobile, Alabama, funded by the Fulbright MasterTeacher Program. Today Rouillier lives by the water on Mobile Bay where she paints and photographs birds and the natural world of the vast delta estuarium. “Painting makes me feel as vibrantly alive as the creatures that I portray,” she explains. She is grateful to USA Professor Emeritus James Conlon for his guidance and encouragement.

The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.
