Art at the Garden

Current Exhibits

Sara Beth Fair | Paintings

September – October | Heritage Hall

Sara Beth Fair is a Huntsville native and has been painting since 2003. She holds a Ph.D. in Optics which aids a technical and artistic understanding of light and color. Sara Beth has taught multiple classes around the country including Europe and has exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the southeast. She has participated in many Plein Air events including the Forgotten Coast Plein Air Invitational and Art in the Open in Ireland.

Her artistic training has come from independent studies of the masters, Plein Air painting, along with tutelage from contemporary masters. She spent three years studying with Murat Kaboulov, a Russian impressionist, along with several students of the Great Russian artist Serge Bongart. Her style reflects her love for the Russian impressionists’ use of color and large brushwork.
