Beth Hubbert paints from a place of happiness. This exhibit does NOT contain dark and dreary paintings from more than a year of living in a pandemic. Instead, her use of vibrant, non-conforming color results in paintings that are cheerful and hopeful and, thus, the tile of the exhibit, Adventure and Escape: Real and Imagined. Numerous paintings in the exhibit include bold depictions of places she has traveled around the world. Some of the work is simply something she saw along the way such as chickens in Mexico or flowers spotted while driving country roads. The goal of this exhibit is to cause the viewer to smile and reflect on good times.

Artist’s Reception Saturday, September 4, 6-7:30pm • “Adventure and Escape: Real and Imagined” paintings by artist Beth Hubbert in the Lobby Gallery Sept 4-28.

Artist, Beth Hubbert, is enthused by bright colors and the happiness they create. The riotous colors in her paintings are extremely eye catching and on closer inspection they reveal thick impasto textures. Hubbert’s creations are inspired by her experiences and vary from expansive landscape vistas to abstracts and sometimes are as intimate as whimsical birds and flowers. Hubbert holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing as well as being certified as an all-level art educator. Currently, she focuses her creativity on completing paintings for art shows and exhibits. Because her mother was a native of El Dorado, Beth feels a strong connection to the SAAC.
