Beth Landin, Art Instructor
“I love the indescribable magic that comes from creating art! I find inspiration in unique perspectives, the interaction of light and color, interesting people, and the beauty of nature.”
Beth paints in watercolor, acrylic, and oil, creates enameled, fused, and sandblasted glass art, and enjoys hand-building in ceramics. Her paintings range from contemporary representational work to abstract landscapes and figures.

Beth feels fortunate to have had great art instructors including Bridget Bossart van Otterloo, Wilson Ong, Lana Primavera, Bill Vrscak, Ivy Stevens Gupta, and Denise Stillwagon Leone, among others. She has exhibited her work regionally in at the Houghton Gallery at 171 Cedar Arts, The Evelyn Peacock Peeler Gallery at the ARTs Council of the Southern Finger Lakes, at the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, and in the Palettes of Hammondsport exhibition.
