A few notable awards include 1st place pastel, New England Fine Arts Exhibition, Mary Barthelson Pastel Award, Mystic Arts Center, the Jack Richeson Award at Arts Center East and Silver Award with Camelback Gallery.
Linda has been active in many art associations and was president of the Wilbraham Art League for seven years. Currently she holds memberships in Tobacco Valley Artists Association, Wilbraham Art League and Artists at the Crossroads.
Her colors are bright and substantial and play gracefully across the color wheel. Her careful, intimate details reward close inspection. She is inspired by nature.
Beverlee has always had creative interests, including designing and selling original clothing and home accessories with fabric, along with growing and arranging flowers.
Several years ago she moved her focus to fine art, studying with different teachers, starting with pastels and then finding her love of painting with oils.
“I love how color can attract you to a painting, drawing you in to hopefully experience a feeling or mood.”
She is a member of the Wilbraham Art League, Tobacco Valley Artists Association and the Artists at the Crossroads.
She has won awards for her paintings, including 1st place at Western New England University, 2nd place at the Blandford Fair Art Show and many others at shows in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
The show is on display from December 1 through December 30 during library open hours. A Meet the Artists reception is scheduled December 9, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., observing COVID-19 regulations.
This show is made possible through the joint effort of the Suffield Arts Council, Kent Memorial Library staff, and the artists.
