‘Rebirth’ By Bette Levy

This is what art looks like after the death of a loved one. Titling this show “Rebirth” (her previous shows were “Before” and “And After”) signals textile artist Bette Levy’s reemergence from grieving with her creativity intact. “While my two previous exhibitions were a way for me to process the experience of [my] husband’s death,” Levy said, “this exhibition is more experimental, more playful, a means for me to try out new methods and ways of working. I see it as a start of new directions and an opportunity to stretch my wings.” Also showing is wood artist Paul Schreck.
