Lake Oswego artist Beth Sautter is displaying her art at Trainer’s Club through the month of May. A contemporary realist painter, she finds inspiration and beauty in a whimsical composition consisting of birds and insects. Her humorous and detailed paintings surface from a lively imagination.

Sautter has a bachelor’s in studio art from University of Texas, and after many years in Los Angeles, moved to Lake Oswego, where she is flourishing in the clean air and serene surroundings. Beth started her painting career by showing her work in the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts 18 years ago and has won several awards including the Juror's Choice Award in 2012. She is the only painter in Oregon to be featured twice in the 2008 and 2012 Biennial for Contemporary American Realism in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Her works have been shown in the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, Coos Art Museum, Oswego Lake Gallery and LO’s Framed by Design.
