Play is the Thing

Arnold Berkman


Suzanne Allen, Free Wheeling


Lawrence Street Gallery presents the work of Suzanne Allen and Maureen Cassidy Keast for the month of August.  For these two artists, “play” is essential, whether it be in ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, acrylics, or watercolor.  The art in “Play is the Thing’” celebrates play in some of its many forms—fun, movement, games, music, drama, art—creations for the young, old, and those in between.  “Playing makes us feel alive and happy just as art makes us feel alive and happy.”

Keast is a member of the Downriver Council of the Arts, Acanthus Art Society, Art Ambience, and President of the Downriver Arts and Crafts Guild.

After 40 years of teaching English literature, rhetoric and women's studies, Allen retired and found art.  She has studied art at Marygrove, BBAC, Pewabic and Roycroft studios.  Her work has been exhibited at various venues in Michigan since 2001.
