Beth Van Liere: a Retrospective

Ring in the New Year with our January exhibit, "Beth Van Liere: a Retrospective", hosted by her husband, Eldon, in her honor.  First Friday opening reception, January 5, 5-7 PM in the library's large meeting room.  Beth was featured in many galleries, museums and private collections  before her passing in 2020.  The art will remain hanging throughout the month of January.


"I am intrigued by the world around me, and contrary to many artists of the mid-twentieth century to the present I believe it holds great meaning for civilization. The intellectual and emotional qualities of abstract art are sufficient for some, exciting for others.  However, I hold true to the belief that mankind responds most directly and with most depth to representations of images of things familiar to it, in other words the world around us.

A painter of nature, my interest in landscape blends with a deep attachment for the countryside of France with its lovely and varied landscape, ever changing light and ever present sense of man's cultivation and care."

Elizabeth (Beth) Van Liere (September 1940 - May 2020)
