Linda Beach, 2013 Visual Artist of the Year
The Larimer County Natural Resources Department Visual Artist for 2013 has been selected! Fiber artist Linda Beach was selected and will create a work of art inspired by Larimer County’s parks or open spaces. Linda has been creating art quilts since 2001, serving as artist in residence at several national parks and exhibiting in numerous locations throughout Colorado and the U.S. You can learn more about Linda and her art by visiting her website at: www.lindabeachartquilts.com
In Linda’s words, “I am extremely excited to have been chosen for this honor. Interpreting and expressing the beauty found in nature is what drives my art and I look forward to the process of creating a piece that represents a unique location in Larimer County and sharing that artwork with the public.” Linda will spend her term visiting Larimer County’s parks and open spaces getting inspiration for her work, and will ultimately create a fiber art piece that she will donate to Larimer County for public display in a county building. This artwork will be unveiled at a celebration in late 2013 or early 2014.
The Natural Resources Department is extremely excited to work with Linda throughout the remainder of 2013! As you’re out hiking or riding on the county’s parks and open spaces this summer, keep your eye out for Linda, as well as the numerous other artists who visit our open lands in search of inspiration.
Linda is the Larimer County Natural Resources Department’s seventh visual artist. Previous years’ artists and the pieces they created can be viewed at www.larimer.org/openlands/artist.htm
