Lori Betz

Lori Betz

Lori Betz is a fine art sculptor whose work is collected and displayed both nationally and internationally.  

After graduating from the University of Texas I did my
residency at the Shigaraki Institute, Japan. After my residency
 was over I sought out instructors to apprentice with and this
lead me to travel and study with as many influential artists as I could.
A few instructors I have studied with would include artist
Alan Bain in Procopia,Greece and in Cortona, Italy with artist Alex Deya
and I was fortunate enough to have studied
raku with the famous artist, Paul Soldner, in Anderson, Colorado.
.
I came back to the United States to pursue a
masters degree in studio art but part way through I decided to open
my own gallery and to immerse myself in the process. Betz Art
Gallery was open for 12 years and located in the heart of
Houston. In 2012 Miguel Macias, who had been my foundry master for 3
years, and I decided to create a partnership and open Betz Art
Foundry in Summer Street Warehouse in the downtown Houston Arts
District. Miguel Macias is a master in all aspects of bronze investment
casting and has been casting my sculptures for many years. Our
partnership is a merging of two artists with 50years of experience
between us, coming together to create works of public art in order to
engage and enrich our community.


Every year I participate in several group and solo exhibitions and my work
has been included in many public and private collections. In 2010 I
was commissioned to sculpt a memorial bronze of two figures for the
Pearland Chamber of Commerce. In 2011 I sculpted a bronze of two
of the soloists dancers for the Houston Ballet and I am currently
working on a life size bronze for the Tampa, Florida Iraqi War
Memorial. I am also completing a lifesized angel for Glenwood Cemetary
My 6 foot tall figurative sculpture was chosen by the Loveland Sculpture Invitational’s
 Sculpture Garden.

 In 2013 I am currently working on five lifesized war heroes for the
Florida Veterans War Memorial. Some of my work canbe viewed at

Her work demonstrates her respect for the classical canons of art and design while maintaining a contemporary relevancy.  Betz displays refined skills and a vision that extends to a worldly perspective.  Her passion for public art translates into an exciting energy in her approach to the sculptural process. 


Betz's figuartive sculptures capture moments of grace, beauty, and vulnerability in her subjects.  Her artworks speak to moments and conditions that touch everyone, and they do so with a dignified strength.
