Collecting: Books Were My Shelter, by Maca Suazo
oil, graphite, paper and gel on canvas, 2014
In the winter of 2016, the Robert Langen Art Gallery presented an exhibit of paintings by Maca Suazo in the Wilfrid Laurier University Library. The exhibit was beloved by both visitors and Library staff, and garnered frequent comments on its warmth and humanity. Following the conclusion of the exhibition, we were thrilled to be able to acquire one piece from the series for the Only Connect collection.
