Awards Judge: Betty Carr AISM

Since gaining her MA from San Jose State University, California, Betty has taught painting, drawing and sculpture at primary, secondary and college levels and has developed a following through both private and workshop instruction. Following years of instructing art in Colorado and California and developing her distinctive painting style, Betty and artist husband decided to follow the sun to the southwest where color and light are ever present. 

Her use of color, light and shade accentuate her subject matter while showing her love of nature and its forms. Betty describes her painting style as impressionistic, with enthusiastic brushwork with a spontaneity of getting the scene in her hands. 

Betty is a Master Member of AIS and a Signature Member of Arizona Plein Air Painters Association.

"What catches my eye is the effect light has on form in unique situations whether fleeting, spilling over, striking, etc. I challenge myself in capturing its dramatic and/or subtle effects. I strive for confident enthusiastic brushwork, the maximizing of color’s value and intensity range and a fresh painterly approach, the result appearing effortless" -Betty Carr AISM


OUR GOAL:

“To promote the appreciation of American Impressionism through exhibitions, workshops, programs and other media.” 

Membership is open to American Impressionist artists who are legal US residents or anyone wishing to support American Impressionism.  Founded in 1998, AIS is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization.
