Artist Bio:

Beth Pearson has a bachelors degree in Fine Art and Writing from Skidmore College and since moving to Vermont in 1991 explored dual pursuits in creative writing and abstract painting.  Beth's premier solo painting exhibit was at the Firehouse Gallery in Burlington in 1999.  The response was immediate and the community enthusiasm for her images convinced her to place more focus on painting.  Her work became recognized for its rich surfaces and poetic compositions. Her painting gained local popularity and other exhibits followed in galleries throughout Vermont.

Although Beth's creative energies have focused more on painting and printmaking over the last few years, the narrative imagery inspired by writing is still present in most of her compositions.  There is a story behind every image and the lustrous surface buildup and selective removal of paint is evidence of a history of stories beneath.  As with a human life, each layer of experience does not replace a previous one but builds upon and responds to its complexities.

Beth lives and paints in the Burlington area and is an active member of Burlington City Arts and Print Studio 250.  She has participated in many workshops, print projects, and artist exchanges in the local and greater Vermont area.  Her works are included in the collections of Skidmore College, Bailey Howe Library of University of Vermont, and the Decordova Museum and Sculpture Park.
