Poetry. Art. Susan Gardner is an exceptionally accomplished painter, photographer, and poet. STONE MUSIC, a large format collection with 44 color plates, features Gardner's work in each of these art forms. It presents a rich blend of classic aesthetics and personal insight. The book is an object of visual delight fully in keeping with the elegant, compelling nature of its content. Her visual and literary art still reflects the style of forceful spontaneity and directness she developed early in her career. "Her art speaks of what is not seen yet is present, of what is common yet irredeemably precious"—J. W. Mahoney.

STONE MUSIC is an overview of my work as an artist and poet. I enjoyed working with the editor, designer, printer, and publisher and I am honored by their contributions to create this handsome book. The process was very revealing, similar to installing a retrospective art exhibition.From the Back Cover:
The line of her drawings, as the execution of her landscapes... (is) dynamic and vigorous, full of life and rhythm... full of suggestibility and intense lyricism. - José Luis Meza Inda, El Informador, Guadalajara, Mexico
Susan Gardner's images... arise as evenly, as naturally proper as the marks of high tide on a beach, as obviously and surprisingly as the geometric patterns of color on a bird's wing. This is... the conjunction of form and mood carried intuitively... to the effortless purity of vision.In a sense her work relates morre to music: muusuic alludes to the abstract fllow that carries its rush of feelings... therough finite and infinite images. Susan Gardner is such a symbolist; her art speaks of what is not seen yet is present, of what is common and yet irredeemably precious. - J.W. Mahoney, arrt critic, Washington, D.C.
