SPOKANE TASTING ROOM EVENT
- Our Wines
- Wine Club
Join us on the first Friday of every month for our Downtown Spokane First Friday reception from 5pm-8pm. Maryhill will be featuring different artists each month in our tasting room. This month we are featuring Beth Heart Art.
Beth Heart is a well-traveled, award-winning, published poet, multimedia visual artist, talented photographer and formally-trained graphic designer from Spokane, Washington. Over the course of her illustrious career, she has created countless art pieces utilizing multiple disciplines and inspired by numerous artistic influences. Beth lists her primary influences and favorite artists as Van Gogh, Renoir, Cezanne, Degas, Monet, Seurat, Manet, Dr. Seuss, Walt Disney, Titian, and others. (Because choosing one is just too difficult!)
Beth is best known for her Pointillism style pieces. French Artists Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the pointillism technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. Beth uses a 3 step process. She uses bold gem tone colors and metallic paints that cause highlights to trick the eye. Her pieces utilize ink, acrylic, and watercolor to create rich, deep texture to enhance her eye-tricking Pointillism effects.
Her work is inspired. Aside from the technical excellence of applying sometimes-subtle, sometimes-dramatic transitions and gradients at the appropriate places in her work, her paintings feature a “Near-Far” effect; throwing all the tiny details up close into sharp relief, yet appearing to have softer, floating elements, and dimensional aspects from a distance.
She has been a regularly featured artist at wineries and store galleries and her paintings routinely show in cities all over the west coast. From Salt Lake, to Phoenix, and from Seattle to Olympia people fall deeply in love with her artwork!
