Poppy Scarbrough is a Bethel University Assistant Professor of Art. She has trained in the visual arts at Lincoln Land Community College, the University of Illinois at Springfield, and The San Francisco Art Institute where she received her Master of Fine Arts degree in 2006. Since 2012, she has been teaching Painting, Watercolor, 3-D Design, Art History, and Art for Life classes at Bethel University. As the artist states, “Something that can change its form from one thing to another is a “shapeshifter.” Environs, people, places, animals and things shape shift, not only to adapt, but to live and survive. Individually and collectively this is part of the human experience. This collection of paintings is an investigation into these shifting spaces.”
The Ballroom Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and to ticket patrons on performance evenings.
