Susan Jane Belton has immortalized the coffee cup.
â€śWalking around with a cell phone and coffee is very American,â€ť says South Endâ€“based painter Susan Jane Belton. â€śItâ€™s a badge of importance.â€ť With that sentiment in mind, the self-described java addict â€” an instructor at Tufts and the MFA School â€” Âcreated her oil-on-panel series of to-go cups, taking inspiration from logos as well as the juxtaposition of thoughtful, lasting images and disposable objects. â€śItâ€™s an old-fashioned, painted portrait of something we throw away. But itâ€™s also about appreciating amazing design,â€ť she says. $1,000 â€“ $1,200, Howard Yezerski Gallery, 460 Harrison Ave., Boston, 617-262-0550, howardyezerskigallery.com.
