More details can be found at https://bit.ly/beau2023 ABOUT THE EXHIBIT: Having lived for 80 years, and looking back on decades of making a life, Beau Wild has always identified as an artist. Like all women artists, she has made choices, sometimes difficult ones, to hold claim to that title. She navigates the world through the lens of her art and she invites us to look through that lens with her, to share her Observation Stories, her Wild Years. ABOUT THE ARTIST: Beau Wild studied occupational therapy at Tufts University and painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, both in Boston. She worked as a therapist and a painter for decades, finding inspiration in both fields. She returned to her childhood hometown of Daytona Beach in 1983 after 22 years in New England. Since then, she has shown work in art festivals, competitions, and museums both nationally and internationally. In 2015, she was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award during a competition in Cincinnati, Ohio. Today, Wild paints daily in her studio on Rose Bay in Port Orange.
