Upcoming Solo Exhibition
ArtsAlive Grant Recipient Beth DeWit presents her Solo Art Exhibit “Shelter” opening August 1st at the Ossining Public Library Gallery. A reception and artist talk will be held August 5th 2-4 pm. The exhibit extends through August 30th during library hours.
Beth DeWit, a Peekskill-based artist is the recipient of an individual artist ArtsAlive Grant for 2023. Her paintings are rendered primarily in acrylic and known to capture the essence of local residents through portraits. Her new series centers on the climate crisis and engages viewers to think deeply about the increasing storms and other extreme weather events precipitated by human activity. Each painting is a portrait that also depicts the devastation caused by climate change. We are asked to imagine for ourselves what we might experience when hit by an unexpected disaster outside what we think is “normal”.
This project is made possible with funds by the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester.
