This post contains our 2016 distinguished guest artist, Betty Branch. Our mission at Artemis is to foster excellence in the arts and literature by presenting distinguished artists and writers, as a forum for many contributors to debut their work.
Betty Branch nurtured Artemis Journal by previously serving the our Board of Directors and has graced many of our past journals with her art. Her sculptures can be found throughout the Roanoke Valley-in the downtown library, at the Taubman Museum, at Hollins University. Her work has been exhibited far beyond Roanoke as well, in New York and in the beautiful Brookgreen Gardens of South Carolina. Betty Branch served as an apprentice at Miles and Generalis Sculpture Services in Philadelphia, and then embarked on periods of independent study to expand her knowledge of art history and art techniques in Greece and Italy. She spent a portion of many years working at Nicoli Studios in Carrara, Italy. Notably, she was the only American Exhibitor invited to the first Salon International del la Sculpture Contemporaine in Paris, 1990.
