Beth has been experimenting with the newly emerging medium of “Masking Tape Art” for over a decade, creating murals, abstract landscapes, still lifes and icons from tape which sh hand-paints in bold primary and secondary colors. Beth will create an interactive event inviting families and youth to participate in creating a masking tape mural within the Studio Gallery.
Beth Courtright Detwiler: “Word is Art”
Contemporary Masking-Tape Artist, Beth Courtright-Detwiler will lead an interactive Community Mural project, “Dark Skies – Are We Listening?” during Dark Skies Week, in the Studio Gallery of Tubac Center for the Arts. This event is open to the public and will be held on Saturday, April, 10th.This fun and thought-provoking art experience titled Dark Skies – Are We Listening will center on the topic of Dark Skies, and the effects of light pollution on our ecosystems, disrupting the circadian rhythms of animals and plants that rely on the benefits of nightfall. The creative imagery and symbolism of this mural experience will come from prompts given by the Artist and the intuition of event participants.
This will be Ms. Detwiler’s 5th collaborative Community Mural Project. As an Artist and Arts instructor, she thoroughly enjoys sharing the experimental nature of her art processes with all ages. In addition to this themed mural activity, Ms. Detwiler will also be exhibiting a collection of colorful artworks which she creates at her Word is Art Studio, in Jerome, Arizona. Signature brightly colored ceramic eggs & birds, and contemporary Masking Tape-Art Panels, all emphasize her love of nature and the environment.
