Betty Jo Costanzo – A Water Odyssey
Exhibit Dates: Friday, November 4 – Friday, December 30, 2016
Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 16, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
You are invited to experience this unusual and provocative collection of paintings in oils. Be prepared to be surrounded by, or possibly even summoned into, the inner spaces of these large and magical images!
Betty Jo Costanzo’s award winning art has been described as “getting lost with a purpose” and “what a place would be like if you belonged there.” She says her influences range from John Cage to film director Alain Resnais, with the late and great Jay Defeo, her longtime mentor and friend, continuing to be the most significant.
Her works are held in corporate, private and public collections around the world and her public exhibitions and residencies span four decades both regionally and internationally. Though she has lived on both coasts of the United States and in San Paulo, Brazil, and has worked and taught around the world, including England, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Cyprus, the former associate professor at California College of the Arts now maintains a full-time studio practice based in Seattle, Washington.
