What makes Bethel Brushworks unique is our ability to create fine art, as well as commercial art and signage in locations that would typically be a seemingly impossible task. We have experience working in most every medium which gives us the ability to reimagine the possibilities, and give any location potential.
From a building's brick walls to the side of a barn, a cinderblock building or a century-old
feed silo on a local farm, we have the ability to bring any artistic concept to most locations. Even elements of nature are a potential medium for our talented group of artists. We can paint anything , any size, any where. From painting " SUNKIST " on an orange, to painting a sunset on a three-story barn roof, anything and everything is possible on any scale.
Our defining inspiration comes from a deep sense of community, as well as a heart-felt desire to do our part to bring beautiful art to this wonderful place in which we live. We are delighted with the opportunity to make our talents available to bring art to the heart of our hometown as a benefit to all. Our lives are enriched by our community and the people in it , and it is our ultimate goal to do the same in return.
Introduction of things to come! Stay tuned........
