Emerging Artists Wall Features Paintings by Betty Flowers

During the months of March and April, the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s Emerging Artists Wall exhibit space will feature paintings by Betty Flowers of Catawba County. The exhibit will be on display at the Center’s Lucas Mansion, which is located at 316 Hiddenite Church Road in Alexander County.

Located on the third floor of the Center’s Lucas Mansion, all Emerging Artists Wall exhibits are free and open to the public Monday – Friday from 10:00am until 4:30pm and on Saturday from 10:00am until 3:00pm.

Betty Flowers was born and raised in Alexander County and has spent most of her adult life in Catawba County, residing with her late husband and two children who encouraged her to pursue her passion to paint. Living in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Flowers draws inspiration from natural surroundings.

Flowers expresses her art in oil and acrylic on canvas, using texture and color to evoke peaceful scenes.

“I believe that my ability to create art is a God given talent,” Flowers shared. “I feel extremely blessed to be given the ability and opportunity to express myself and bring joy to others through my paintings.”
