Rita Beyer Corrigan
Fascinated by the layering of colors in the depths of the forest and the grassy meadows they surround, Rita Beyer Corrigan is currently working with landscape images of northern Minnesota, especially along Lake Superior. The contrast of and reflective nature of water set against the land forms of both rocks and trees also call her to record their images.
Since she was a very young child Rita Beyer Corrigan has always had an interest in drawing and painting. “It’s all I ever wanted to do,” she says.
Rita Beyer Corrigan is a pastel artist whose MA degree is in creative photography and oil painting. Later she became attracted to the brilliance of pastels and the effect they had on her work. Rita was an art teacher and also taught language arts and religion at a small Catholic school in Rosemount for 25 years. She has a studio in the Northrup King Building where she exhibits her work.
