VERO BEACH — A new exhibition of plein air Florida landscape and wildlife paintings by award winning artist Lis Bech will be on display at the Indian River County Courthouse through mid-October. Join the artist from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, July 29 for a narrated tour of the exhibit.
Lis Bech is a representational painter based in Vero Beach who has been an art educator in the public school system for 13 years. After more than two decades of painting professionally, Bech has been focusing on plein air landscape and wild bird acrylic painting since 2005.
One of her favorite spots to paint birds is a small slough off Lake Kissimmee. Currently, she is taking courses to become a certified interpretive guide through the University of Florida. This natural history-based Florida program has fueled her love of Florida in its natural state.
Bech enjoys sitting in the wild areas that remain in Florida and study the flora and fauna while she paints. Her work is in corporate and private collections throughout Florida and the east coast of the United States.
The Courthouse exhibit is located at 2000 16th Avenue in Vero Beach and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
