Betsy Popp - Residency Retrospective
In 2001, artist Betsy Popp was accepted for an Artist-in Residence program on Sapelo Island, Georgia. Since then, she has completed ten more residencies – in several U.S. national parks, at the Porcupine Mountain State Wilderness Area, the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan, the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay, the Intercultural ODYSSEYS NGO in San Ramon, Costa Rica, and at The Idaho Art Lab, St. Anthony, Idaho. Her exhibit in the Nicolet Art Gallery is drawn from the art created during those residencies. It includes oil paintings, pastels, wood sculptures, acrylic painting, and watercolors.
