Betty A. Gerich has had nine solo exhibitions of her sculpture, including a one person exhibition at The New Britain Museum of American Art. Her tenth solo exhibition consisted of watercolor wash drawings of family members capturing individuals showing playfulness, intimacy and warmth. Betty has received an Individual Artist Fellowship Grant Award from the Greater Hartford Arts Council as well as fourteen other awards for both sculpture and painting. She is a signature member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society. Her ceramic sculpture is featured in "500 Figures in Clay", a book published by Lark Books and "Best of America, Sculpture Artists and Artisans" as well as "Design Principles and Problems" published by Holt Rinehart Winston.

 

Inspired by the expressive potential of the human body, Betty's art includes faces, which display emotion, and studies of the body emphasizing the gesture of the human form. Her more abstract sculptures include curving shapes which suggest the figure.
