Bethany Saab

Canberra-based emerging artist Bethany Saab started painting with intention in 2020. A practicing psychologist, Saab holds no formal training in fine arts – yet she is quickly finding her place amongst Australia’s emerging artists to watch. Saab’s early works sold strongly through the Michael Reid Studio Direct program, leading to two solo exhibitions with Michael Reid Northern Beaches in January and October 2021, and a solo exhibition at Michael Reid Murrurundi in March 2022.

Painting predominantly still life, Saab’s paintings have been described as ‘intimate glimpses into personal spaces’ (Peter Haynes, The Canberra Times, May 2021). 

Saab was featured on the arts podcast Interview with An Artist in April 2021, as well as appearing in The Design Files ‘Emerging Painters you should know’; ArtEdit Magazine; Hunter and Folk Journal, and The Australian Newspaper ‘Inaugural Summer Exhibition’. 

Saab has also participated in multiple group exhibitions in Australia and was Finalist in the 2021 Lethbridge 20000 Small Scale online award, the 2021 Inaugural National Emerging Art Prize and was highly commended in the Agency Still Life Award 2022.
