Gwenn Seemel Bettie

Art Show in Jersey City

Bettie’s portrait is part of a series that I painted for an upcoming book about collective bargaining and how it can be used by more than just labor unions.

The original painting will be on display in March as part of the Resistant Women group show at the Merseles Studios space in the Jersey City Theater Center! The opening reception is March 13th from 6 to 10 PM.

My alphabet book isn’t even done yet, and I’m getting pushback about some of the wildlife in it. An entire species being deemed “not child-friendly”—especially a species like the gentle recyclers shown in this image—is a sad reflection of our culture, but this book can help the next generation forge a new relationship with nature!
