Caldwell Arts Council in Lenoir, NC, is presenting an installation entitled, Last Words, a solo installation by Susan Lenz, on view from Oct. 4 – 26, 2019.

There’s an artist talk this coming Friday, Oct. 4, 2019, at 4:30pm followed by the opening reception from 5-7pm at the Caldwell Arts Council.

The installation went very, very well and Lenz is looking forward to meeting people who come to the meet-and-greet and the reception!
