Art work

Betty Hadfield is the principal artist here at The Gallery at East Beach, working with oils as an interpretive artist. She possessed a love for art from early childhood, and then when she attended Longwood University, she was thrilled at the prospect of majoring in Art.


She received her degree in Art Education and raised a family, while continuing to build her skill as well as her reputation as a serious artist. She works with a limited palette and enjoys using bold and unexpected color to capture the mood and integrity of her subject.

Interpretive Art

Her art has been on display at various Hampton Roads indoor art shows, and several galleries. Her work has sold nationally to collectors in Texas, California, Colorado, North Dakota, Illinois, Florida, and Massachusetts, as well as in Virginia and North Carolina.


"Love of beauty is taste. The Creation of beauty is art."
