Chenoweth is a painter who describes her work as a spiritual process: "I have to fall into an abyss of unknowing to get to a new place of understanding." She's shown in galleries and museums throughout Phoenix and across the United States, but her upcoming exhibition, titled "Sue Chenoweth: Real and Applied," is the painter's first international solo show.
The work she created in Rio was on view at Largo das Artes Gallery from August through September of 2012. It will travel to Phoenix for a Third Friday opening on November 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. and a panel discussion on Saturday, December 1.
