Photographer is July guest artist at gallery | Lifestyle

TVAA Gallery N’ Gifts welcomes Susan Neves as our July guest artist.


“You have a good eye!” is an expression Susan Neves often hears from people viewing her photography. Neves is passionate about defining that statement each time she picks up her camera to capture a fleeting moment with just the right light and a balanced composition. She believes it is her ability to look closely at life’s landscapes and see that which is often overlooked by others. Her photography prints are the end result of that vision.

Neves is primarily a landscape and architectural digital photographer, a resident of Ridgecrest, and owner of Susan Neves Fine Art Photography. She is a self-taught photographer and hold degrees in fine and graphics arts as well as digital animation.

Rob Neves, Susan’s husband, contributes to her art by doing all of her custom matting and framing, using contemporary, as well as repurposed wood material as appropriate for the piece.

Being a member of the following local art associations gives her the opportunity to be a part of the art community.

Bakersfield Museum of Art, Bakersfield

Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association, Tehachapi

Kern River Valley Art Association, (KRVAA) Wofford Heights

Tehachapi Valley Arts Association, Tehachapi
