Sabbatikos: Paintings by Betty Haskin and Bill Neville
Sabbatikos chronicles the work completed during a sabbatical that artists Betty Haskin and Bill Neville took upon retirement from their respective careers. Betty was the Arts Coordinator for Duke Eye Center and staff member of the Arts & Health Galleries at Duke. She has also been a landscape painter for the last 35 years. Bill had his own custom designed and built furniture business. The Ackland Museum Store exhibition Leaving the Table (February-March 2014) showcased Bill’s furniture and wood turnings.
Betty and Bill spent a year living and traveling abroad, mostly in Greece. They felt it was the perfect place to begin a new chapter, to slow down, and to engage in a new culture. Their time was spent reading, writing, drawing, walking and studying contemporary Greek painters and Ancient Greek art. As they made friends and contributed to the community around them, paintings began to emerge. The paintings in Sabbatikos are a reflection of what they saw and learned, a visual representation of the love and admiration they have for Greece and its people.
Sabbatikos opens with a special reception on Friday, 11 September 2015, 6:00-8:00PM during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk.
A “sister show” featuring work from this same series, Greece: Light & Crisis, will take place 2 September through 1 November 2015 at the Arts & Health Galleries at Duke Hospital in Durham. For more information, please visit artsandhealth.duke.edu.
