SUSAN BYRNES  is a visual artist whose studies in photography, sculpture and sound inspire an interdisciplinary practice that encompasses traditional and contemporary forms and methods, including sculptural objects, multimedia installations, radio broadcasts, written articles and curatorial projects. Her artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums including Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, the Korean Cultural Center of Chicago, the Dayton Art Institute, Concordia University in Ann Arbor, the Sculpture Center in Cleveland, and 516 Arts in Albuquerque.  In 2014, Susan was awarded a Cincinnati Art Ambassador Fellowship from the City of Cincinnati for the project “Discover”, that combines molecular biology, glass sculpture, and audio in an installation that explores the process and wonder of scientific discovery. In 2012 she curated the exhibition MEME: Culture In Transmission for the Herndon Gallery at Antioch College. Her audio pieces based on artists and artmaking processes, including sculptor Patrick Dougherty, eco-artist Basia Irland, and video artist Jud Yalkut have aired on WYSO in Yellow Springs, OH.
