Susan Moldenhauer is a Laramie, Wyoming based artist who uses photography to create original artwork that will be on display and for sale at the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition hosted by the Laramie Artists Project.
Susan’s work in photography spans 30 years. She has explored different ideas and ways of image-making that have embraced advancing technology, the landscape as a foundational element, the search for an aesthetic and poetic experience, and a continuing questioning of how to make sense of the world in the split-second magic of photography. She work in series, which currently include the iPhone panorama; images made from her Wyoming home combined with personal, national, and international news of the day (View from Home); musicians (Nocturne); digital pinhole; and a collaboration with artist Wendy Lemen Bredehoft and a dancer/choreographer Margaret Wilson (Sequencing Through Time and Place). The work that she will present in Touchstone Laramie 2018 is from the Carissa Mine at the South Pass City Historic Site. The images were presented at the Lander Art Center in the summer 2018 in an exhibition that complemented Sequencing Through Time and Place: The Carissa Mine in the UW Visual Arts Building from May - September 2018. She received an MFA / Photography (Penn State University), has exhibited nationally, and am represented in public and private collections. Awards include the Wyoming Arts Council Fellowship in Visual Arts Award (2016) and the Wyoming Governor’s Arts Award (2017) for her work as a photographer, an arts advocate, community leader, and director of the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
