This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Abstract printmaker and collagist, Betty Blayton-Taylor is also commonly recognized as a lecturer.  Blayton-Taylor was born in Williamsburg, Virginia in 1937.  She attended Syracuse University in New York, were she graduated with honors in1959, with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art.  During the summer of 1961 she took a course in educational psychology and art education at the City College of New York.  She studied sculpture for two years at the Art Students League of New York City under Arnold Prince, followed by three years with Minoria Nizuma at the Brooklyn Museum School.
During her career as an artist, Blayton-Taylor also worked as an adjunct professor for the City College of New York, and served as an artist-in-residence at institutions such as Virginia State University at Norfolk, Fisk University, Brown University, and Tugaloo College.  

Blayton-Taylor assisted in founding the Children’s Art Carnival for the Museum of Modern Art children’s visual arts outreach program in 1968.  She became the executive director of the program one year later when it moved to Harlem in 1969.  A founding member of the Studio Museum of Harlem, New York in 1965, she has been a member of board of Arts and Business Council in New York City, and a consultant for the City of New York Board of Education.

Her work has been exhibited in galleries and universities in the United States for more than thirty years.  After traveling to Egypt in 1988 she developed a profound interest in heritage as an African-African.  As a result, she created a series of monotypes which were displayed in 1990 in two solo exhibitions held by the Isabel Neal Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.  

Blayton-Taylor is included in the permanent collections belonging to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Studio Museum of Harlem.  In the United States and Europe, she has been featured in radio, television documentaries, and the documentary film based on five African-African artists entitled, “Five.”
