Gallery Opening of Kristie Hayes Beaulieu

A gallery show at Better Farm last Friday celebrated the work of visiting betterArts resident Kristie Hayes Beaulieu.

As we discussed in an earlier post, Kristie is a high school art teacher and professional visual artist who visited us for two weeks from Syracuse, N.Y. through the betterArts residency program. Her work has been featured in more than a dozen group and solo exhibitions in galleries as far away as Detroit, and her recent "x-ray art series" has been featured on the cover of Academic Medicine and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists' medical publication.

Kristie sold three pieces at her gallery opening, and we had a great turnout—complete with an impromptu, live musical performance by some North Country locals. Here are some photos from the gallery:
