Betty Woodman passes leaving behind art that has captivated so many.

By now you’ve likely heard of the passing of Betty Woodman. There are many well written articles and obituaries circulating about her life and work, but I thought here I might just let her speak in her own words. If the following few videos give you a taste for more there are many more on Youtube and Vimeo.

Here are a few links as well to follow up on:

Betty Woodman


Wednesday, March 2, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario
Members $15 / public $18 / students $12

Widely recognized as one of the most important ceramic artists working today, Betty Woodman will speak about her life and art on the eve of the opening of an exhibition of her work at the Gardiner Museum. Woodman is a master of colour and form whose painterly sculptures and installations bring images of Matisse, Picasso and Miro to mind. In 2006 she was given a full retrospective at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, an honour rarely bestowed by that institution on an individual living artist. Betty Woodman: Places, Spaces and Things opens to the public at the Gardiner Museum on March 3, 2011. Presented in partnership with the Gardiner Museum.
