Montoursville artist displays work in Harrisburg

HARRISBURG – Montoursville artist Ron Beach, noted for his works of outdoor scenes in nature, has a display of his work in the Harrisburg office of Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming) through June.

“It is a pleasure to have Ron’s work in the capitol office for the remainder of May and through June,” said Everett. “His work is well known in the region and his outdoor scenes are done with beauty. All four seasons of the year are represented and they are true works of fine art.”

Everett said Beach developed his love of nature as a boy, engaging from what Beach calls “nature snooping,” but his art career did not really begin in earnest until 1984, when he received an acrylic paint set from his fiance.

Beach has served on the board of directors of the Lycoming Audubon Society, Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art, The Bald Eagle Art League and Rider Park.

Beach was selected artist of the year twice by the West Branch Chapter of Ducks Unlimited and his art was selected as a “sponsor print” for the Ruffed Grouse Society.

A retired employee of the state Department of Transportation, Beach is also a retired deputy game protector with 20 years of service with the state Game Commission.
