Posted Jul 25th, 2014 by Sue Runkle  Category: Arts & Entertainment


“Our World” an art exhibit featuring watercolor and pastel paintings by Betsy Ford will open Friday, July 25, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. at Inside Angles Custom Framing Gallery, 6831 Angola Rd. Holland, 419-867-3533.
Betsy Ford, at 90-years-old, is well known among artists in the Toledo area, having competed with them in decades of art shows and donating countless hours to local art organizations.
Betsy first became interested in art when she was a child, as an adult she was mother to six children and spent most of her spare time playing tennis. Physical developments forced her to give up the sport so she returned to her first inspiration, art. She took some classes in watercolors at the Toledo Museum of Art and soon was joining and leading art organizations.
She is a member of the Toledo Artist’s Club, Spectrum, The Toledo Women’s Art League, and the NW Ohio Watercolor Society. Her work has also been displayed in the area artists’ show at the Toledo Museum of Art.
Betsy takes a trip somewhere in the world each year with her daughter, who is also a pleinaire painter. They paint and photograph, and enjoy many adventures. Her exhibit is testament to those trips with scenes from Switzerland, Italy, Michigan, Canada and the Galapagos Islands.
The one-man art exhibit at Inside Angles, located near the corner of Angola and McCord, and behind the gas station, will remain on display until, August 30. Gallery Hours include: Tuesday through Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Closed Sunday and Monday.
