About Susan Gallacher

Artist Susan Gallacher is well known for her paintings of Utah's rich and varied landscape and especially noted for her rural depictions. These paintings often include a homestead, domestic animals or a simple country home with its informal additions and outbuildings. Gallacher began painting plein air with oils in the seventh grade when her art teacher took interested students out in the field. Today she lives part time in the capitol urban city of Salt Lake where for 30 years she has owned a studio/gallery. There she paints her large paintings, holds painting classes and life drawing sessions. She also lives part time in the small historic town of Spring City, where the land is a constant source of visual stimulation. While there she also holds plein air workshops. Gallacher has been written about in several major books, including A Century of Sanctuary, Painters of Utah's Canyons and Deserts, The Best of Flower Painting, Artists of Utah, Utah Painting and Sculpture and Strokes of Genius. She has won several awards and her paintings can be seen at Kings Cottage Gallery and Williams Fine Art in Salt Lake City, Utah. She will also be participating at In the Footsteps of Thomas Moran Plein Air Artist Invitational November 1 through 7 at Zion National Park.
