Sherman, Texas, acrylics artist Beth Hubbert’s show, “In Living Color, Moments and Memories”, will be featured in the Lobby Gallery October 6-30. An artist’s reception is planned for this Saturday, October 6, from 6:00-7:30pm in the Price and Merkle Galleries.
Hubbert is an ARTIST in capital letters, because she simply must create. She is enthused by colors and the happiness they create. Art has been, is, and will continue to be an essential part of her core being. She is thrilled to be coming to El Dorado to show her works, and it is a bit of a homecoming for her since her Mother, Betty Lu Pittman, originally hailed from El Dorado. Hubbert said “if my Mom was alive still, she’d be so thrilled that her daughter is showing her art at SAAC! “
Taking art lessons in elementary school led Hubbert to a desire to learn more about art in college, where she received a fine arts degree in painting and drawing from the University of North Texas. She later returned to college to become certified as an all level art educator, enabling her to share the passion for creative learning with young people in public and private art education for 27 years before retiring from teaching.
Beth and her husband, John, are travel enthusiasts, which leads to experience inspired creation. These works vary widely from colorful landscapes to whimsical birds to abstract paintings and collages. No matter how much she learns artistically, the entire process is a continuous and spectacular journey with her goal being to make someone smile. Beth describes her art quest with one of her favorite quotes from Danny Kaye, “Life is a great big canvas and you should throw all the paint on it you can.”
