About The Table Top Dancer

Secondary title is "Medicine Man".

Suzanne is unique is creating her brightly colored spoofs on the American West.  Her compositions are both fun and highly detailed in their execution.

He dangles a grey medicine pouch from one wrist and is wearing a two-tone concho belt with gusto!

About Suzanne Klotz

(Born 1944) Cited as both a painter and a sculptor in Who's Who in American Art, Klotz studied art at Washington University in St. Louis (1962-1964), Kansas City Art Insitute (1964-1966), earning her BFA there. Klotz was received her MFA at Texas Tech Univeristy in 1972.

Her work is included in the permanent collections of the National Museum of American Art (Smithsonian Institute); Spencer Art Museum in Lawrence, Kansas; Scripps College in Claremont, California; at the American Craft Museum in New York and at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Klotz's work intends to address, in an ironic way, contemporary attitudes toward gender roles, marriage, materialism, global, social and economic disparity and the invisible lines that define borders.

Vicky Boyce Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona represented Klotz's work for many years after Elaine Horwitch Galleries staged several exhibitions for Klotz earlier in her career.

Suzanne's first marriage resulted in the hyphenated name Suzanne Klotz-Reilly, which is the name she used for paintings, drawings and sculptures corresponding to that time period.
