Do you like colour, a variety of mediums, seeing art in a different way? Looking for that unique gift to give your spouse that will be original? Local Beaumont AB artists Christie Jedele and Betty Schriver are exhibiting their art at the Beaumont Library from Dec 16th to March 1st and just might be the ticket to those questions!
Christie is best known for her watercolour and acrylic paintings, mixing the two media together to create depth, texture and energy within her art pieces. In the past she has focused on landscapes, still life, and portraiture. She has illustrated several children’s books exploring the culture of Northern Manitoba. As an art teacher in the school system, she has been able to dabble in all kinds of art forms. Christie has recently began creating abstract art with an emphasis on floral landscapes.
Betty has recently moved back to Alberta and is enjoying painting the beautiful scenes around the Beaumont area. She believes and life long learning and takes classes with some of her favourite Canadian/American artists when she travels or when they offer workshops near home. She feels this learning method fast tracks the creative processes to get the results she wants. Betty likes to use colour in interesting ways to portray the emotion the environment invokes. She is inspired by Canadian landscapes and those of her travels, and often portrays them in an impressionistic style.
