Betty Pitts Foster
She experienced many different pathways but her heart has always stayed true to the gift within and at this time in her latter days she is fulfilling her desire to express the triumphs of the joy of living, and celebrating what God has created. Her paintings vibrate with light, the energy of movement, and color, taking the viewer into the world of people going about their everyday life, the inner response of joy you feel on a warm summer’s day or the excitement of dancing.
Her work is an inner response to what God created using vibrant colors and strong contrasts with abstract shapes, combining them in realistic visions of the natural.
Past awards include the Chautauqua Art Association's 13th National Jury Show, Buffalo Arts Society, Williamsville Art Society and selection by renown artists Ernest Chrichlow and Romare Bearden to exhibit at the Gallery Museum, Hall of Springs, Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
