REVIEWS (selected)
"A contrastingly emplematic technique, featuring boldly simplified forms and flat color areas, is used by Susan Webb Tregay to depict office workers sitting on steps, consuming fast food and checking their cell phones during their lunch hour." AWS' 147th Exhibition" A World of Possibilities by Byron Coleman, Gallery & Studio Magazine, June/July 2014

"Susan Webb Tregay's piece titled "Us" is comprised of a hollowed book to which has been added an open brass safe door. Inside are ... slightly schmaltzy mementos. The book's title, "By Love Possessed," seems to echo the artist's sentiments in what just might be the world's first funk-art valentine."
Bruce Adams, The Buffalo News, 1/31/03

"Susan Webb Tregay's abstractions suggest a freeze-frame of complicated thoughts and feelings--a "diary".... Richard Huntington, Buffalo News, 8/4/00

"Susan Webb Tregay, working in a combination of media, has a command of modernist vocabulary..." Richard Huntington, Buffalo News, 6/7/98
"From the comic relief department, a certain naive wackiness rears its head on occasion, as in Susan Webb Tregay's "Land of Opportunity," an image of a U.S. map full of childlike houses and the block-printed script "WHERE ANY BOY CAN GROW UP TO BE PRESIDENT."
Josef Woodard, Los Angles Times, 5/2/1996
"One particularly clever piece by New York artist Susan Webb Tregay received the Puget Sound Award. "If You Don't Behave I'll Send You to Father Baker's" uses dark purple and brown to create streets of working-class houses in the shadow of a rather mysterious white cathedral. Tregay's juxtaposition of colors gives imaginative viewers comical or even sinister ideas about a parent's threat to a naughty child."
