Beth Schwartz Studio
- Mixed Media,
Beth Schwartz is a Baltimore based mixed media artist and retired pathologist. Her art incorporates hand cut collage, acrylic paint, altered photographs, clay, beads and whatever odd objects that find their way into her hellaciously messy studio. What comes out the other end is a dizzying and eclectic array of boxes, journals, wall pieces, assemblages, cards and prints. Mixed media give provides Beth with an enormous sandbox to play in as each piece evolves. Her decisions about materials and process are made in service to intriguing concepts or images. Particularly in her paintings, rich visual layers engage the eye and invite the viewer to linger. Humor is another essential ingredient in her work.
Since 2015 her artwork has been in galleries and craft shows in Maryland and northern Virginia. 15% of sales is donated to Baltimore’s Health Care for the Homeless.
