Artist Beth Lambert’s paintings of Maine landscapes will be on display during the month of October at the Jesup Memorial Library.
Lambert says, “My art is about how the land and sky feels to me. I paint ‘’plein air’, gathering information from what I see around me. Early morning and late afternoon are the most magical times for me to paint outdoors. During these hours, the light that bathes the world is exciting, nourishing, soothing. I am never interested in painting what is ‘out there’ but instead painting what is ‘in here’, what I see.”
Lambert has loved to draw and paint since she was a child. She earned her BFA in Studio Art with Honors from the University of Texas in Austin. After raising 3 children, she returned to painting fulltime. She studied with Don Stone in Port Clyde and Monhegan Island, attended the Johnson Studio School in Vermont and many painting workshops on Cranberry Island, Great Spruce Island and in Eastport. She has won “Best in Show” at juried exhibits and art festivals, has been represented by Clark House Gallery in Bangor, Susan Maasch Fine Art in Portland, Courthouse Gallery and Harlow Gallery in Ellsworth and Shaw’s Gallery in Northeast Harbor. Lambert and her husband live in Southwest Harbor on the Seawall Road where they have a gallery in their home. She also enjoys organic gardening, hiking and playing music.
