Betty Foy Botts: Abstract Wildlife

When: Sat., Feb. 13, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 2016

In honor of a wildlife-filled weekend (hello, SEWE), Mitchell Hill Gallery presents painter Betty Foy Botts, whose pieces focus on nature and animals. Botts has called her work divinely inspired, saying in a 2013 City Paper interview, “In my paintings, you can generally recognize the animal and you can recognize movement ... They’re very much inspired by my love of the Lord and creation, and so all these animals, to me, take on a real spiritual aspect.” Botts’ works can skew towards the abstract like in the color-drenched canvas “Secrets of the Sea,” but she’s a sucker for details. Her studio is adorned with deer heads and animal skulls so that she can accurately paint a variety of living creatures.
