Bets Holland Lundeen – Biography

Bets Holland Lundeen is a native of Norman, OK. Her first experiences in art were early childhood drawings, but her skill in capturing emotions in her art was born from her extensive experiences as an actress, choreographer and dance teacher.

Bets finds that there is a similarity in the process of tapping creative emotion, whether it be designing patterns and dance steps as a choreographer, creating a character for a dramatic performance, manipulating the clay when developing a sculpture, or observing the character of the subject for an oil portrait. She feels that there is a constant thread which connects the various arts. Her goal as an artist is to weave this thread through the soul of the observer.

Since her days as a young woman traveling throughout Europe and studying with different teachers, Bets has become proficient in her various techniques and has gained national attention through exhibitions from Beverly Hills to New York City. Having been a professional sculptor for over 30 years, she has recently been concentrating her career focus on oil portraits and paintings.

Lundeen Sculpture

George and Cammie are both participating in this show. Come join us!Well known sculptor George Lundeen will be joining our show this summer. You may have seen his life sized sculptures in such public places as the new Scheels in Loveland, CO, Denver International Airport, Statuary Hall in Washington D.C., Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, the University of Pennsylvania, Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado, the University of Illinois and many others.

He was born and raised in Holdrege, a small town in southwest Nebraska and received a B.A degree from Hastings College. Two years later he was awarded a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois. His love of education has led him to teach at the University of Illinois, University of Nebraska at Kearney, Texas A & M University, Loveland Academy and the Scottsdale Artists School. Most recently he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Nebraska. A Fulbright-Hayes Scholarship sent Lundeen to Florence, Italy, for a year where the works of the old masters inspired his ambition to sculpt. Today, George lives and works in Loveland, Colorado.

Through each work of art, George Lundeen presents realistic images that eclipse time, genre and cultures. There is a quiet beauty in a George Lundeen piece, where style flows into expert design. Observers of his work are captivated by his artfully created figures, which capture human emotions with a universal sense of beauty.
