Painting is a meditation, a contemplation, and a bridge to the spiritual world inspired by mundane glories, like the weather on a particular day spent in the country, a cat stretching in the sun, or nostalgia. Painting clears my mind, feeds my soul, and balances my life.
My paintings of animals are reflections of humanity; my paintings of nature are about a sense of belonging.
Exploring the shift between shadow and light, action and silence, and playing off these notions by using color that is neither quite realistic nor fantastical, helps me to continue to develop my personal visual vocabulary.
The paintings of award-winning artist Beth Lowell have been exhibited in solo exhibitions and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States, including the Slater Museum in Norwich, Connecticut, the Paterson Museum in Paterson, New Jersey, the Lewis Gallery in Portland, Maine, and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. In addition, her paintings are in private and corporate collections, including Animal Nature in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the Mondelli Building in Morristown, New Jersey.
Beth Lowell Design
Art for licensing and color workshops
Teaming up wildly different colors from her favorite fruits and flowers, like orchid, pomegranate and orange is just one integral element of Beth Lowell’s trademark design style. Inspirations like fauna and flora, old handwriting, 19th century design and Asian motifs are main characters in her visual story. Beth’s background includes comprehensive training in both fine and commercial art at The Vesper George School of Art in Boston, MA and Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY.

What I never Told You
A healing installation art project
Beth Lowell’s interest in the healing arts and her lifelong passion for letter writing inspired this collaborative project. Participants (that includes you!) from all over the world are invited to write a letter to someone that they wish had told something but missed the chance. The end product is a paper quilt constructed from the shredded letters she receives. Follow the project here.
