Susan Murphy

Featured Artist

 

Susan Murphy holds a Master’s degree in modern dance from Mills College in Oakland, CA, and is a Certified Movement Analyst from the Laban Institute for Movement Studies in New York City. She taught modern dance and aerial dance at the U. of GA from 1999-2002. In 2002, Susan and her husband Don Carson envisioned and built Canopy Studio, a community aerial arts center in Athens, GA. Susan served as Executive Director of Canopy until she moved to the Georgia coast in 2009, where she and Don have built The Marsh Studio. She has performed at Lincoln Center and the Skirball Center of the Performing Arts in New York City, Aerial Dance Festival in Boulder, Colorado, and the New England Center of Circus Arts.

The Marsh Studio no longer holds classes, retreats, or performances until this pandemic has played out. For now, I have found a new creative outlet during this time of relative isolation. The constrictions of the pandemic for aerial dance retreats and performances have emboldened me to explore another art form. Using vintage stained glass pieces, my sister and I have created original suspended stained glass art pieces and mobiles. Each piece is one-of-a-kind. They are crafted using a diamond ring saw, the edges smoothed with a diamond grinder. The colors embedded in the glass resemble watercolor paintings radiating light. The driftwood and shells are collected off of the coast of Georgia. My husband, Don Carson, engineered safe and elegant methods of rigging the pieces so they can be hung. I am excited to share this new endeavor with you and hope I can warm and light your space with floating glass art and mobiles.
