Betsy Tyler Bell

As a student nurse in Oxford, Betsy met David, a geology undergraduate, and they married three years later. For two years they lived in the British Solomon Islands where their first son was born and David mapped and looked for minerals for the Overseas Geological Survey. Back in Oxford and university life, their three children grew up and she studied Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art.

Renovating an old Drômoise farmhouse, bought in 1986, gave them an enduring love of rural France and allowed her to realise a long-term dream.


About Book

An Art Adventure in the South of France is the fascinating true story of Art in Situ, an art initiative founded and inspired by Betsy Tyler Bell who, along with her husband, David, worked tirelessly to ensure its success.

Back in 2000, before the digital revolution, artists met in groups and held their own speciality events. However, Betsy and David were proposing a new idea which caught the imagination of both funding bodies and artists who were ready for new challenges. Workshops where the artists worked and lived in close proximity, experimented with their ideas based on themes, giving rise to thought-provoking discussion, music and poetry. Things didn't always go smoothly but the artists have reported how their time with Art in Situ heavily influenced their future work.

Personalised with the artists' voices, it is a story of passion for art, of camaraderie among like-minded people and with descriptions of the art produced that will create lasting visual images in your mind.
