Beth Nadler’s latest exhibit titled “Dreaming of Flowers,” opens in the Oresman Gallery at the Larchmont Public Library on Oct. 3, and will continue to be on view through Oct. 30. Additionally, there will be a reception honoring the artist on Saturday, Oct. 7, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Gallery. Everyone is invited.
Art has always been an essential element in Nadler’s life. She has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember and always knew that she wanted to be an artist. To pursue her career in art, Nadler graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University with a B.F.A. in 1984 and continued her education at Parsons School of Design.
She went on to create her own home décor company and sold decorative storage containers featuring her unique designs to the wholesale trade. Nadler’s products have also been sold in a variety of shops including, Anthropologie, ABC Carper & Home, and Harrod’s of London. Her items have been featured in a variety of publications that include New York Magazine, Country Living, Vogue, and Hampton’s Magazine, to name a few.
Since her career in the wholesale industry, Nadler has licensed her artwork onto a variety of products such as greeting cards, decorative garden flags, notebooks, inspirational books, and other home-décor and stationary items.
“Art has always been a way for me to express myself and to create a world to get lost in,” Nadler said. “Color is the driving force in all of my paintings and creates a mood in each of my pieces no matter what the subject might be. I’m greatly inspired by flowers and lush landscapes and lively colors. I feel that we live amongst much sadness and ugliness and being able to add some beauty to our world makes me very happy.”
Nadler is excited to show her recent body of paintings in the Oresman Gallery at the library, which she describes as “colorful, decorative, and freeing.” Nadler is a local artist, residing in New Rochelle. She works from her light-filled, personal studio in Mamaroneck.
