Art Display at Gere Branch Library

Art display by Abbey Lynn Bettinger at Gere Branch Library
Artwork by Abbey Lynn Bettinger, a teen artist, former Gere Branch volunteer and guest artist for Gere's B.E.A.S.T. after school art club. Abbey has generously shared some of her artwork with Gere Branch for this display. Here's what Abbey says about herself:

I'm Abbey Lynn Bettinger, a senior at Lincoln High School. In second grade, I started drawing. In the fifth grade, I began taking private art lessons from Barbara Mattley. I have spent eight years there developing my art skills. Portraits have always been my main focus, but I have done other work as well. My favorite medium is sketch to wash pencil. After I graduate from high school in May I plan to go to UNL and major in interior design.
