Lauren Betty: The Fabric of Being

In some of her latest paintings, Atlanta artist Lauren Betty employs painted fabric to make works on canvas of rich but diaphanous beauty. Her use of painted and weathered drop cloths and veil-like gauze netting create a surprisingly magical effect, floating across her canvases as if stirred by a light breeze. Her colors are the colors of nature, only faded, matured. These paintings are both organic and sophisticated. This evolution in her working practice Lauren attributes to her move to the farm that she and her husband bought in the North Georgia mountains. "Leaving my very gritty urban studio for the space and light of the countryside, worked on me in ways I hadn’t expected,” says the artist, “not only in my art, but in daily life--I now have a family of goats!” The exhibition of Lauren Betty's work will be on view until the end of the year, along with new works by other gallery artists and guest artists.
