In the city: Beth Wittenberg


“Living rurally affords me the opportunity to go inside, to open up my receivers and have a spiritual conversation" - Beth Wittenberg 

She makes paintings on cardboard, plants them on the side of the road for motorists to see, then lets them deteriorate in the rain. Instead of tagging buildings illegally, she now reproduces her anti-heroin graffiti as original poster art and distributes posters through community and arts organizations. And rather than risk offending her neighbors by hanging paintings in a downtown storefront, she showed them last month in a North Berwick art gallery, where she could talk seriously about her work with people who cared.
