A Mainer by Heart and Home – Artist Bethany Harper Williams Shares

“I only painted a few paintings a year for the next few years, but all were inspired by summers in Biddeford Pool. It wasn’t until 2011 I decided to have a show,” says Williams. “I knew I wanted to do something in Biddeford Pool, but I didn’t know what. We ended up throwing a cocktail party for all our friends. Many friends had no idea I painted. Needless to say, it was a big success.”  This inspired her to want to go further with her painting and changed her focus from graphic design to painting.

A Walk in the City – Artist Insights from Bethany Harper Williams

“This show, I’ve added some paintings inspired by my new ‘city life’ in New York City. I take the same idea of capturing a moment, abstracting the landscape, which is now buildings instead of beaches. Then I focus on the figure’s mood without the details of representation. More subdued tones replace the colors of the beach. Fun to find textures and patterns on the city streets.”
