Waterlily Series

kindley-pink-lily

I have enjoyed my return to incorporating photographs into my encaustic paintings.  This new work is a series of photographs of waterlilies that are printed on silk and embedded into beeswax.  Each is 20′ x 20″ x 2.5″ on cradled wooden panel.  Available for sale.

This series can be seen at the Lexington Avenue Brewery   (LAB) in downtown Asheville December 11 – January 15.  I hope you can stop in to see my art, have a great lunch or dinner and enjoy a brew.

“Ebb and Flow” Exhibit

 

Several works in Bet’s “Black Diamond” series are included in the “Ebb and Flow” exhibition at the Asheville Area Arts Council, Grove Arcade, Asheville. This is a group exhibit by the artists of 310 Art. Their work will be on display January 3 through March 31, 2015.

 

“THE DEVIL IN THE STRAIGHT LINE”

 

Bet’s work will be on exhibit October 6 – 14, 2014 at the Bakehouse Art Center, Audrey Love Gallery, Miami, FL. The pieces juried into the show are encaustic collagraphs. “The Devil In The Straight Line” is an international juried show sponsored by International Encaustic Artists and jurored by Henning Haupt. An opening reception will be held Friday, October 10 from 7 – 10 pm. The gallery reception on Friday is a kickoff to the larger Wynwood Art Crawl on Saturday Night, a separate event which draws approximately 4600 people every month to the Wynwood Arts district.

 

 

This exhibit is inspired by Austrian Friedensreich Hundertwasser, one of the best-known late 20th century artists. He created zany masterpieces of unruly shapes and vibrant color and considered straight lines “the devil’s tools.”

Encaustic painting lends itself beautifully to Hundertwasser’s ideals.

 

ENCAUSTIC and COLD WAX EXHIBITION AND CLASSES!

Her show depicts challenges and triumphs of the female journey. Be intrigued with such works as “Atomic Chocolate” and “Can’t Keep A Good Woman Down.”

Bet is delighted to be exhibiting concurrently with her life-long friend, Mary Alice Ramsey. Ramsey’s show is in the adjoining Highsmith Art Gallery and is titled “Faces, Flowers, and Super Powers.” It portrays the sensitivity, savvy and super strength of women.
