Gwen Meharg

April 6, 2020, 7 pm

Gwen Meharg uses abstraction to paint hope.  
Abstraction dances around the edge of story.  
The stories we tell define who we are.   
Her paintings provide a safe place, a sacred space, for story to unfold.  
Each painting explores what has been, what is, and what might be.  
Each layer influences, but no single layer determines the final result.  
Each painting declares that beauty is possible.  
Each painting is a declaration of hope.

Abstraction hints & tugs at memory.  
Abstraction dances around the edge of story.

All good stories are true. Some true stories actually happened.

The stories we tell ourselves & each other define who we are.  

Her modern landscape paintings provide a safe place, a sacred space, for our stories to unfold.  

A moment is captured in pigment and suspended in time.  
Each painting is an exploration of what has been, what is,

and what might be.  
Each layer influences, but no single layer determines, the final result.    

Each painting is a declaration that beauty is possible.

Artist's Statement: Texture and the effects of light and shadow have become important elements in my paintings.I am fascinated with the glow of reflected light on various surfaces. Painting on location on a regular basis has opened many doors for me. I cannot improve nature, but I can rearrange and simplify it to correspond to what I feel. Traveling abroad has opened up new vistas of color and texture for me. I paint to convey the enjoyment and excitement of what I see.

Betty Biesler

Mar. 2, 2020, 7 pm

After painting in oil for many years, Betty Biesler switched to watercolor about 40 years ago and has not been disappointed since. Watercolor is the oldest, most versatile of all mediums and she is amazed at how many different styles it affords the artist. She enjoys trying new techniques and can’t imagine ever getting bored with it.


She has studied under many well-known watercolor artists and has a passion for learning. The best way to learn is by teaching, which she has been doing since 2002. She has written two work books, “One Step at a Time-Watercolor for Beginners” and One Step at a Time-Watercolor Portraits”, which she sells and uses in teaching at her workshops.


Several years ago she found the joy of painting Plein Air (outdoors). She started entering Plein Air juried competitions around Texas and she has won two first places and a second. Most of her painting is  studio…taken from photographs she has taken. Her favorite subjects are Texas wildflowers, Hill Country landscapes and other Western scenes. She is  particularly fond of painting portraits.


Her paintings have found their way to private and commercial collections around the world. They are on display at Highland Arts Guild/Gallery in Marble Falls, in businesses and bank lobbies around the area. She is a member of Buchanan Arts & Crafts Gallery and Texas Watercolor Society.

Bev Boren

Jan. 6, 2020, 7 pm

Bev Boren was born and raised in Texas and now resides in Trophy Club, Texas with her husband Ben.  She is a signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society.  She is also a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and American Watercolor Society.


Her work is primarily the result of her need to paint.  Inspiration can come at any time and in any place.  She is not confined to one subject area.  She loves  to paint a variety of subject matter as well as working in various mediums.  Bev's paintings are created with things that capture her eye whether it's a still life, landscape, or capturing a person's personality.  Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her and sharing those experiences along the way.

In her words "Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort.  After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words.  My best hope is that my work will stand simply on it's own, and find a connection with viewers where words fail".
