Beth’s path as a self-taught artist has taken her to workshops for study with many well-respected textile artists such as Joyce Scott, Barbara Lee Smith, Bhakti Zeik and Erica Carter. David McFadden, former curator of The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), has shown Barron’s work in his “Artists to Watch Out For” lecture series, and, MAD owns one of her first Band-Aid pieces.
In October 2015, Beth spent a month at the Vermont Studio Center where she had the opportunity to work in the studio around the clock. The experience was transformational and has reenergized her desire to express her concern for the people and the condition of the planet, especially during these challenging political times.
