Edward’s Steakhouse is proud host local artist Tracy Bettencourt, during the December 2019 First Thursday Art Walk.
Tracy Bettencourt, mother of two, artist, advocate for persons with disabilities, motivational speaker and APSU Alumni, began to lose her eyesight in her early 30s from an eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa. Although the disease has left her blind, the hardships she experienced have not prevented her from living her life to the best of her abilities. She brings a new insight to how art is viewed and continues to have a humble heart.
I lost my eyesight over eleven years ago and within the past four years began painting using my hands. I am blind. My life is very structured and I use assistive technology on my IPhone and IPad to help identify colors. The paints I use are textured acrylic and forms of puffy paint. My hands are my eyes and the puffy paint allows me to convey my thoughts and feelings to canvas using tactile lines. Every day I wake and live in darkness yet with my newfound skill of painting, I am able to share my unique perception of the world around me as well as conveying the unseen beauty of life. My paintings reflect hope, adversity, love, positivity, strength and determination and I put my heart and soul into every piece of artwork. There will always be a mountain to climb yet no matter what the obstacle, there is light within darkness and therefore there is hope.
Stop in, see the art, listen to Jackson Miller on the piano and enjoy the Thursday night special, 1/2 priced $7.00 appetizers and 2 for 1 draft drink specials.
