For the Love of Art: Paintings by Bettye Olson

View more than 30 paintings spanning 70 years of Minnesota artist Bettye Olson’s career. Since the 1950s, Olson, now 93, has explored nature through her work: “Nature is full of energy. I transfer that energy into my brush strokes … and put it into painting,” she says. 

Her paintings have been exhibited internationally and are part of the collections of museums in Minnesota, Finland and Sweden. 

For the Love Art runs June 4-Sept. 11, 2016. 

Exhibits may be viewed as part of regular tours or with gallery-only admission of $2.
