Betsy Bohrer is an outstanding local artist we’ve known for 15 years. Her art is colored by her life experiences. She uses soft pastels and oils on canvas and paper as her chosen medium.
“I preserve my life experiences as free-verse poetry, captured moments, observations, and the occasional whimsical doodle in my journals. These meditations transform and evolve through layers of color, texture, and insomnia into tangible visual images. I convey these images through oil and pastel on hand textured paper, board, and canvas, ultimately illustrating and defining my life story.”

One of the most engaging artists, Donald Stone, shares his wealth of insights about folk art in Florida and the significance of symbols in his own pieces. Stone’s pieces include orange groves in bright lines and sea worthy ships with historically relevant details “sprinkled” throughout the pictures.
