Beaches, Beasts and Beer at Triumph Brewery, The Art of Beth Lowell
Beasts at the Brewery, which runs through May 17, showcases pastel paintings of animal friends, seascapes and still life in both pastel and oils.
“Exhibiting at venues like Triumph is a wonderful opportunity because it brings original art to people who might not ordinarily visit galleries or museums, and even people who don’t consider themselves interested in art.” Lowell says, “And you never know when a painting will spark a thought, an idea or a memory in someone, or make them wonder what the story is behind it.”
Paintings in this exhibition are primarily pastel and include seascapes, animals of all kinds and still life, although a few oils are on display as well. Impressionistic in style and vibrant in color, Lowell’s work captures the unique personalities of each animal she paints. Her still life subject matter is slightly left of classical in subject matter, as she draws from an array of her eclectic collections. Her newest work in seascape and shore towns is some of her most powerful yet.
Lowell is a graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and Vesper George School of Art in Boston. She has also studied at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, and the School of Visual Arts and the Center for Book Arts, both in New York.
Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and has been featured in juried art exhibitions, at art events and in corporate galleries from Maine to Texas.
Currently, her work can also be seen at North End Trilogy at Barnegat Light, NJ, where she has gallery representation.
The solo exhibition continues through May 17, during the hours the brewery is open. The Triumph Brewery is located at 400 Union Square in New Hope.
