Betty Ochs' friend, Joan Kasprzak, also an artist at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, eloquently shared her thoughts about Betty:
"Over the past 20 years that I have known Betty, she was a supportive friend and colleague. She was an accomplished, distinguished artist with a warm, generous spirit, always willing to listen and give counsel to those around her. We spent many lunches discussing art, family and even politics. I will miss her deeply and she will be missed deeply by all who knew her."
Please join us as we celebrate the life of the late Elizabeth "Betty" Gaither Ochs, a former artist at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, with a memorial exhibition in the Target Gallery over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The exhibition will be held from Wednesday, November 24 through Sunday, November 28, from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. each day. A reception in honor of Betty Ochs will be held on Sunday, November 28, from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. The memorial exhibition will feature Elizabeth Gaither Ochs' realistic prints and paintings. Her subject matter includes horses, etchings of flamenco and other types of dancers, and her Coffee Break series
