Bethany Vanderputten's "Expressive Art to Capture the Heart"

I'm excited to announce Bethany Vanderputten's upcoming art show, opening on July 1 at Gallery 688 in San Francisco!

They say a picture says a thousand words. Bethany Vanderputten's naturalistic acrylic paintings go deeper than words. They are explorations of the inner and outer world.
Bethany's paintings glow softly with luminous colors, expressive brushwork and textures that hint at layers of multiple meanings.
Ideas and emotions seem to drift fluidly just beneath the surface. Experiencing these paintings, we travel back and forth across the border of what is real and what is imagined, dreamed, or felt emotionally.
Bethany's art is inspired by her love of travel and adventure, music (she sings and plays piano), heroic stories and quotations from literature and poetry.
Bethany was kind enough to let me interview her in her San Francisco art studio. This interview is on my other blog, Artists Up Rising.


  1. This sounds like a wonderful show. I wish I could be there. Lovely of you to announce this.

  2. The opening was fantastic! Lots of people were there, and Bethany's art looks beautiful! As always, thanks so much for your visit, Tammie : )
