Meet my friend Beth Meadows.
Actually I don’t really know her in real life. I’ve just been stalking her through email since I laid my eyes on these….
Yes I will give you a moment to compose yourself………. Aren’t these Mason Jar Paintings just about the best thing you have even seen in your life!?!?!?!? I was tagging along on my husband’s business trip and we stopped in one of my favorite places, Knoxville Tennessee for the night. Go Vols. While we were walking around Market Square looking for a place to eat, I stopped in one of my favorite shops of all times, Bliss Home. When I saw this wall of Mason Jar Paintings I almost fell over and stopped breathing. Seriously I think the chick working the counter heard me gasp because she gave me a very concerned look. I love the colors, the wood, the subject, the everything of these paintings. So I did what every normal person would do and googled the artist and the stalking began. Now we are best friends (well at least in my mind).
I wanted to share some of Beth’s work with you so you can be as inspired by her as I am.
Beth received her BFA with a concentration in Drawing from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2007. She decided to stay in Knoxville to develop her portfolio and to encourage the art scene here. She is the co-founder and co-manager of 17th Street Studios, a work space for artists and designers in downtown Knoxville. She holds and curates shows frequently in Knoxville and other cities in the region, and her paintings have continually been added to private collections internationally over the past several years. Love her.
“Most of my paintings are narrative, depicting imagined scenes inspired by personal experience. The settings and placement of figures convey a particular emotional and psychological state. As a whole, they are steeped in a fascination with fashion and design, historic and modern architecture, children’s literature, music, and film.”
- Beth Meadows
