In the Gallery - Fine Art of Beth Reed


If you appreciate fine art, you won't want to miss this Retrospective of Beth Reed's paintings. Created over a forty year period, the exhibit includes oils, watercolors, and mixed media.

Ms. Reed  got her start as an artist in a high school class in California. She continued on and majored in Art at the University of California at Irvine and also received a degree from UC Berkeley in Architecture. She went on to take classes at the Academy of Art College in the 80's and in the 90's she took classes in oils. In 2007 Beth started taking classes at the Baytown Art League.

This exhibit will be on display through September. Tours are available on request.

There will also be an informal reception at the library on Monday, August 17th at 6:00 pm.
