Beverly Hallam: Artist as Innovator highlights this artistís brilliant career, with examples of work in all her chosen mediums, including her current passion, computer graphics (which she took up in her 80s). Filmed at Hallam's studio in York, Maine, this intimate portrait by director Richard Kane and art author Carl Little includes interviews with Vicki Wright, director of collections and exhibitions at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, gallerist John Whitney Payson and art patron Mary-Leigh Smart.

From a family of inventors, engineers and artists, Beverly Hallam began exploring art as a teenager, washing her photos in the bath tub of her home in Lynn, Massachusetts. She studied at the Massachusetts College of Art, Cranbrook Academy and Syracuse University becoming a full-time artist and moving to Ogunquit, Maine , in the 1960s .

Hallam pioneered acrylic paint, mastered monotype and collage, and created large-scale airbrush portraits of flowers that astonished the critics and were coveted by collectors. Her work is in the Fogg Art Museum, Farnsworth Art Museum, Ogunquit Museum of American Art, Evansville Museum, and National Museum of Women in the Arts.
