Beth NeuerFirst Friday Art Walk – October 2017

Discover Art Downtown at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday October 6th from 5pm to 8pm, to view the layered paintings of Beth Neuer, during our First Friday Art Walk.

Beth Neuer works in watercolor and oil, each having different responses, but prefers watercolor because of its intimacy and immediacy. It is her insight that gives her direction as to color and balance. Layering color gives Beth a variety that is interactive and beautiful, making it her own.

As an artist, Beth has searched for what Spirituality means in relationship to herself and to her work. She continues to bring the inner and the outer together in some kind of harmony. Beth loves color, shapes, space, light and dark, putting them together to create a painting that spurs her on to whatever will be next.

You will find Beth’s paintings invite the viewer into the space leading them to think about their own life experiences. This show relates to life’s layers and what makes up those layers to become what they may be.

  • Our History


  • NexLynx Gallery of Arts started in 2010, after being selected as one of the venues for the ReThink Topeka Exhibition and Art Walk that same year and each year after. The Re-Think Topeka Art Walk was a movement to spur re-building community awareness through art and cultural events. NexLynx continues to be a proud supporter of the art community with our monthly exhibits and opening receptions. We worked with the former Arts Council of Topeka, and now ArtsConnect to promote art in the community as a premier downtown gallery on the Downtown Topeka Art Walk.

    The Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the historic downtown Bates Building. Walter L. Bates' (1859-1903) last business enterprise was the building of the structures on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Jackson Streets, known as the Bates Block, which includes the I.O.O.F. Hall (117 W. 6th - c. 1910) and 123 W. 6th (c. 1902).


    NexLynx Gallery was voted a Finalist in the 2016 People's Choice Award, nominated by people in the Topeka Community as their favorite stop on the First Friday Art Walk, a program of ArtsConnect.
