Beth Dary

New York based artist Beth Dary produces multi-media work that references water and its ever-changing environs. Caused by natural or man-made phenomena, changes in sea levels and other bodies of water can bring devastation, and/or give way to new life forms. Dary’s artistic output can vary from drawings made with encaustic referencing shifting tidal pools on Cape Cod where she grew up, to site-specific installations of hand-made porcelain barnacles mounted on walls and ceilings, to glass push-pin pieces referencing sea organisms. Her main public art project was a site-specific installation of 28 hand-blown glass bubbles that floated on the pond in Battery Park, New York City. Dary actively participates in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad and is the recipient of numerous grants, awards and fellowships. Her work is in many corporate and private collections including the New Orleans Museum of Art.
