"TIFFANY & Co. in East Hampton is thrilled to have artworks from such a well known artist as Bettina Werner on exhibit at the Tiffany store"
History has taught us the most accomplished artists are those that have a recognizable medium that one can spot from far away – a language of art. Bettina Werner has truly created an entire unique language with her textured salt technique translating to all who encounter her artwork around the globe. It is unmistakably and synonymously profound.
Ms. Werner’s striking paintings created with Salt crystals have been recognized and selected from prestigious collections in the U.S and Europe exhibited all over the world from the Whitney Museum, Pushkin Museum in Moscow, Portofino Museum Italy, The Detroit Institute of Arts, Triennale Museum in Milan, Chase Manhattan Bank, to the collection of Herbert and Dorothy Vogel.

A currency in & of itself that in history was indeed traded as a financial commodity complimenting not only her method, but serving as a parallel to mastering this "Fifth Element" in her artworks. As winter approaches, the sea changes, the soft air disappears, tides transition, the ocean become a chill, yet the salt still remains for…Crystals of the Winter Sea
