On Display: photography by Betsy Gammons

Betsy Gammons, a graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design, has been employed as an art educator in Concord, NH since 1981. During that time, she was very fortunate to have been granted a two-year leave of absence to teach at the Frankfort International School in Germany, and then again at the American International School of Budapest in Hungary. Her travel experiences, whether home or abroad, provide her with much material for her work, which include pastel drawing, oil painting, and photography. She is continually inspired by color and design in the landscape, especially water, and the discoveries along and upon the water's edge. The images she shares with us are the result of a longing to wander off-the-beaten path in search of surprises that echo "stay this moment!"
Betsy's work will be on display in the Art Gallery through November 15th. We hope you will stop by to see more of her amazing images from off-the-beaten path!
