Beth Arnold received her BFA from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA. She has always enjoyed drawing and painting, but found limited time to pursue this interest while “life happened”. Fifty years ago, she married Zack and together they raised a family and built a business. This time also included earning her MLM from GA State University and working as a Media Specialist in both private and public schools. Since retirement, she has found more time to devote to her love of painting and travel. Often, she combines the two. Her study of art expression has been aided by many teachers and fellow artists.
For several years she studied under the tutelage of Joseph Perrin, retired head of GA State University’s art faculty. She has also received instruction from Tony Couch and Judy Greenberg. Critiques from Judy Surouric and Diana Dice, as well as other artists from the Buford Art Group have helped refine her work.
Beth has exhibited at Centerville Community Center (one woman show), Suwanee Library, Mercer University, George Pierce Center, Tannery Row, Chateau Elan, Art Station and other venues.
“It is such a blessing to record my impressions of this beautiful country and several countries in Europe. Sometimes it is my own neighborhood which inspires me to pick up my brush and other times it is one of the many locations my husband (and sometimes daughters) have been privileged to visit. Adding my paintings to my journal allows me to add to the pleasure of the trip and to bring home my pictorial interpretations. It is my wish that some of this personal pleasure reaches others as they view my paintings. Enjoy!
