Thank You, Christine Beals

Special thanks to local artist Christine Beals who served as the juror for the 2023 exhibit.

Christine Beals is a local artist who utilizes geometric designs, quilt patterns, and the beauty of nature as inspiration for her work. She meticulously maps out on a wooden board, carefully paints and embellishes it, and finally varnishes it to give it a protective coating. The finished product is very similar to examples of folk art, in that it features bold, clean lines and vibrant colors.

Thank You to our Exhibition Partners

The Ingham Student Art Exhibit would not be possible without the contributions from these collaborating partners.
