SUN & SHADOW
Started in mid 2022 and finished in Jan 2023. Reference photo was from my last trip back to village of Wabualu in the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea where I grew up. The village is at the edge of a tais (garden of sago palms in the swamp).
I had the opportunity to do a mural with Anthony Peña (the boy) and Weston Thomson (grids and circles). I painted the flowers. This one is located across from the elevators inside Hello Apts. Nov of 2022
PORTRAITS OF CARING
Portraits of Children and Caregivers: This new series started with a portrait of my mother-in-law and my baby in January of 2022. From an embrace to simply laying next to each other, I aim to create a large body of work that includes mothers, fathers, grandparents and other grownups with the children they care for. If you have a moment you captured in a photo that would like me to consider painting, please email me a photo stating I have your permission to paint it along with the first names of those in the photo. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Artist sneak peak:The Betni Kalk solo exhibition opens soon (July 27), and we thought you might like to know a bit of what you're getting into.

Here is an excerpt from an interview with Kalk where she shares how her work reflects visual elements she finds in the great outdoors. Fred Simon Gallery is located at 1004 Farnam Street, Lower Level, Omaha.
