Betsy Lewis is an artist currently living and working in upstate New York. Her work includes techniques such as hollow forming, forging, and fabrication of non-ferrous metals. Inspired by acts of offering, her work is an accumulation of signifiers that allude to grief and hope. She investigates the ephemerality of our memories and how we instill them into objects.

Professional experience extends to working, assisting, and teaching at the Maine College of Art, Brooklyn Metalworks, and SUNY New Paltz. Betsy has been awarded several education scholarships from the Peter’s Valley School of Crafts, Penland School of Crafts, and Haystack School of Crafts. She has also had the chance to begin showing her work nationally while working towards her Masters in Fine Art at SUNY New Paltz.
