A long-time resident of the area, Rose Besch has returned from her annual winter trip in Florida and has her art back on display at the Arts in the heArt Gallery on 47 S. First St., Fulton.
A retired teacher, Besch has always had the opportunity to do what she loves — art.
Besch taught art for 30 years in New York state schools at all age levels. She received her bachelor’s degree with an art major from SUNY Buffalo and her permanent certification from SUNY Oswego.
Oswego is her hometown.
After retirement, Besch could spend more time pursuing her passion for art by taking numerous workshops from nationally known artists. She also taught some workshops herself.
It is hoped that she will begin teaching some classes in the Fulton area now that she has returned from Florida.
Besch also works outside at the Farmers’ Market during the summer. Check with the Art Gallery for a schedule of art performers that will be demonstrating at the Farmers Market this summer.
Besch has received many awards for her work and has been honored with several dual and one-woman shows.
Although she has studied most art media, her favorites remain watercolor, acrylic, mixed media and collage.
She is a member of several art associations in New York and Florida.
