Beth Stoddard | Milwaukee County Parks Painting Project

June 2019 - August 2019

City dwelling landscape painter Beth Stoddard delights in and advocates for Milwaukee’s green spaces by painting its County Parks. The oil paintings' visible brushwork and modernist emphasis on shape activate the restful imagery of familiar urban parks and nature preserves. These pieces respond to a cultural, natural, and civic inheritance worth preserving.
