“ FotoFest  2012 -Three Exhibitions one Great Location” at Betz Art Gallery


Saturday, March 24, 2012 6-9 p.m. Opening Artist Reception for “Natural Beauties:  Color Field” by artist June Russell in the Betz Art Gallery main room. 

June Russell finds being in nature a spiritual journey.  In her art she she seeks to capture aspects of natural beauty and express powerful emotions through color and form, sharing the energy and spirit she experiences when viewing nature's palette.  Building from her" Natural Beauties:  Beyond the Petals" series, this new work,  "Color Field",  is focused on large color patterns.  As in "color field" painting, texture and pattern become secondary as color prevails.

Also, Saturday, March 24, 6pm-9pm in the showcase room at Betz Art Gallery will be the opening artist reception for “Abstracts” by artists Sally Stubbs and Yvonne Ybarra.

“Abstracts” is an exhibition featuring Houston photo artist Yvonne Ybarra and Sally Stubbs. Sally  is a strong believer that beauty can be found almost anywhere. She has created intriguing abstract images from fractured glass found amid the ashes of a home destroyed in last summer's wildfires near Houston. Yvonne Ybarra says "Everything we look at has beauty.  It can be in the most unlikely of places...one just needs to indulge in curiosity
to find it."
