The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to present an exhibit of graphic design creations by Suree Minnatee in the gallery space at the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, located in the historic St. John’s Parsonage at 633 Pearl Street in Elizabeth. A selection of her work entitled “Amalgamation” is on display at the Pearl Street Gallery through October 23. The public is invited to enjoy the exhibit during regular gallery hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
“Suree has been an active volunteer in all things artistic in Union County for many years,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Advisory Board. “It’s a great pleasure to display her beautiful and skillfully done artwork.”
Suree Minnatee was born and raised in Elizabeth. She was drawn to creative and artistic activities while growing up. This led her to pursue a career in the arts. After graduating high school, Minnatee attended Union County College in Cranford. She transferred to The Art Institute of Pittsburgh-Online Division and graduated in 2013 with a degree in Graphic Design. Even though her focus is graphic design, she likes to experiment and learn about other art forms and mediums.
Minnatee has been a volunteer assistant to the art coordinators at The Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs for three years. She helps setup art exhibitions and has created flyers for exhibits on display at the Freeholders Gallery. She is also a member of The Elizabeth Arts Council that holds art and music receptions with local artists in the City of Elizabeth.
Suree actively exhibits in many local Elizabeth venues: the 2015 Elizabeth Public Library Elizabeth Art Council’s “Cool Art in June” exhibit; the 2014 Women’s History Month Celebration at City Tavern; and the 2011 Black History Month Art Exhibit at the Union County Freeholders Gallery.
Suree Minnatee is skilled in many Adobe programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat 9 as well as Microsoft Office Suite. To see more of her work, visit http://sminnatee.wix.com/sminnatee.
