February 2022 Presenter: Beth Williams

You are invited! Please join us at our meeting on Monday February 21, 2022 for some fun and fellowship! This is our regular monthly members meeting.


**Due to Covid exposure for our presenter, this meeting will now be held ONLY VIA ZOOM.


Hope to see you there - members and guests welcome!

For February, our presenter will be Beth Williams. Beth, a highly successful pastel artist will present:


“Working in a Series”


Beth will discuss her process of working in a series, beginning with choosing subject matter that leads to daily painting practices and the many surprising advantages that result when an artist approaches subject matter in this way.




 

NOTE: We have made an adjustment to the time and location for our meetings due to a permanent change to earlier closing hours at Crooked Creek Park. Please be sure to make a note on your calendar and plan accordingly!

Refreshments/Social Time: 5pm-6pm

Meeting runs 6-8pm.

Presentation will be approximately 6:30-7:30.


To give us a little more space to spread out, we will meet in the FRONT meeting room adjacent to the kitchen (where our awards reception has been held in the past). This is the first room on the left after entering through the lobby.

  • In light of current high rates of infection and CDC guidelines, we request that everyone wear masks during the meeting except when eating. The Board will revisit this policy as the situation evolves or park policies change.

To keep the business meeting shorter, please review the information provided by our President regarding Board business activities and decisions prior to the meeting <Click HERE>.

The Zoom session will open at 5:45pm

The Meeting will begin at 6pm

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Beth Williams

Photo of Artist: Beth Williams

In 2021 Beth Williams achieved her Master Circle Status with the International Association of Pastel Societies. Beth is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, and a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of South Carolina. She served as the 2019 Artist in Residence at the Dry Tortugas National Park.


Her work has been featured in Pastel Journal: The Winter Landscape 2021, The Pastel Journal’s “Pastel 100” competition 2018 and 2019, as well as in Charleston Living, One King's Lane, Charleston Garden and Gun Jubilee, Charleston Style and Design Magazine, Charleston Art Mag, and in the summer 2020 issue of Parks and Travel Magazine. She has exhibited in the annual juried Piccolo Spoleto Art Exhibit in Charleston, SC, 2014-2018.


Beth earned Fine Arts and Bachelors of Science degrees in Art Education from Texas Tech University, teaching art for private and public schools, as well as for art museums across the country and abroad. She began painting full time in 2009, pursuing a career in fine art landscape painting.


Beth's work focuses on the diverse sea island landscapes that surround her home studio in Beaufort, SC. She prefers to begin her paintings outdoors, observing nature and the fleeting light effects on color, shape and texture in the landscape. Her marsh and dunes scenes have been described as sweeping, soulful and intuitive. Especially notable are her recent explorations in technique focusing on movement and textural quality of tidal and ocean waves.


Most recently, Beth has initiated a flame series that tempts the eye with the mystery of fire. The initial installment of the series sold out within two hours of its offering.


Though currently expanding into oil, Beth's medium of choice is pastel, which she prefers for its rich, luminous color and velvety finish, allowing her to capture a strong atmospheric quality in her landscapes. She reveres pastel for its pure color permanence and flexibility to work in wet or dry technique, as well as allowing her to paint or draw simultaneously on the same surface. She is an avid reader of art history, and her work has been influenced by noted landscape painters Edgar Payne, Wolf Kahn and Winslow Homer.


You can find Beth's work in the Charleston Artist Collective gallery and at With These Hands gallery on Edisto Island, SC. Beth can also be found at bethwilliamspastels.squarespace.com, on Instagram @bethewilliamsart and on Facebook @Beth Williams Fine Art.
