BETTY GLICK is a Boston area artist painting in oils, gouache and digital media. She earned her BA from Swarthmore College, and her MA from Boston University. She has had solo shows at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Medicine Wheel Spoke Gallery, Amazing Things Arts Center, the Danforth Museum School Gallery, and Galatea Fine Art. She has also participated in many juried group shows in New England. Institutional collectors include Wellesley College Permanent Art Collection, Hebrew Senior Life, and Afers Publishing (Valencia, Spain).
Betty began her artistic life as a potter, but felt a strong pull to begin painting seriously after the death of her father in 1999. She studied painting at the Danforth Museum School with Michael Dowling, and he remains her mentor. Betty experiences the process of painting as an exploration into the hidden patterns underlying what we see on the surface.
Betty lives in Holliston with her husband Tom and their dog Clio, and enjoys gardening, traveling, singing, yoga, and playing the piano.
