WVCC Artist of the Month | Suzanne Ross

Desert Find, by Suzanne Ross *
Wonder Valley artist Suzanne Ross is the first local artist to be shown in the new WVCC Artist of the Month program. Her piece, Desert Find, is featured at the WVCC through the month of April. The piece is made of fiber, paint, pastel, dye, and found objects. It was first made in the 1980's, and recently revised.

A native of New York State, Suzanne Ross attended the Empire State College and University of Buffalo and holds a Bachelor's Degree in the Visual Arts. While living in New York City for six years she studied at Pratt Graphic Arts Center, The New School, The School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League.     

In 2000, Ms. Ross moved to Wonder Valley, California, where she presently maintains her studio.

The mission of the Artist of the Month Program, at the Wonder Valley Community Center, is to:
  • Promote the WVCC as a gathering place that engages and empowers community members
  • Provide a place for local artists, and those inspired by the Mojave Desert, to show their work
  • Encourage the creation of art within the Community
  • Acquaint the residents of Wonder Valley with artists in our Community, and 
  • Promote our artists as a source of civic pride. 
If you are interested in applying to be an Artist of the Month, please email Teresa Sitz at, and you will be sent an application, or stop in at the WVCC and pick one up. The WVCC is open Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
