Artist Betsy Brown In Exhibit At Health Library
LA MESA -- The Dr. William C. Herrick Community Health Care Library, a consumer health library in La Mesa, is now hosting its Summer Art Exhibit featuring 16 art pieces by El Cajon fine artist Betsy Brown. The exhibit, featuring Brown’s creative talents in water media and collage, includes paintings of animals and floral arrangements and Hawaiian ladies in dresses in collage. The show runs through the end of September.
Brown’s work, highlighting design and color harmony, has been described as whimsical, romantic and dramatic. She has won numerous awards and has juried many art shows. She uses portions of her old paintings to create greeting cards that are sold from her studio. Despite a recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, she has continued painting.
Brown has lived in El Cajon since 1967. She graduated in 1952 from San Diego State University with a degree in art. She is a member of the Southwestern Art Association, Foothills Art Association and East County Art Association.
