Artist, teacher, friend and neighbor Betty Wilson’s (1920-2014) life was a journey in artistic exploration and excellence. Always prioritizing design principles including pattern, proportion, balance and contrast, her paintings were masterful in their use of form, composition and color. Her studies in portraiture, geometry and abstraction were masterful. Betty Wilson not only taught at the College of Marin, but was also an active member of the Marin Society of Artists. This exhibition, which ran from January 17 to February 15, 2020, included over 40 paintings spanning 50 years of work and allowed us to celebrate a woman who loved her creative journey.
This exhibition was curated by Kate Eilertsen.
