Northglenn Arts is pleased to announce the installation of the Betty grace Gibson gallery exhibit. Northglenn Arts is proud to partner with Paletteers Art Club to present this special exhibit of one of Northglenn’s defining artists and arts advocate.


Betty grace Gibson

Betty grace Gibson was a local legend in her own time.  In 1962 she and her family became one of the first homeowners in Northglenn.  She was a secretary at Malley Elementary School for 23 years and also served on the North Metro Arts Alliance Board for 15 years. She always knew she would be an artist and when she saw an ad in the local newspaper for people who wanted to paint together, she and five other women jumped at the chance.  Out of this group was born the Paletteers Art Club in 1961.  This club is still active and she was a member until her death in 2021.

A self-taught artist, Betty painted from a variety of sources, but watercolor and acrylic were her favorites.  She began spending the summers in Taos, New Mexico and loved painting the Southwest. She taught many workshops, sat on the Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation Board of Directors with Joyce Downing, and was a driving force for art in the Northglenn area.  She died in 2021 at 95 years old.  An exhibit of her work will be shown on the Parsons Theater Gallery wall in January, February, and March 2023. A reception will be held January 05, 2023 from 6-9pm.
