In the latter half of 2013, Sue Benner created three commissioned landscape works for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA, including View from County Road D. The subject of these works continues her fascination with the wetlands of her home state of Wisconsin.
She recently completed another quilt in the series, Marsh Detail #2: Poygan Lake. In this quilt, Benner explores the water’s edge, surface, depth, and reflection.
