Betty Harper, known to many for her world-renowned Elvis portraits, recently opened her new exhibit, “50 + Years with Elvis,” at the Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville. Elvis fans looking to get a sneak peek can watch a new video posted on FOX17.com.

“50 + Years with Elvis” gathers some of Betty’s 10,000 portraits of the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Harper's careful attention to detail and her uncanny ability to probe the character of her subject is more apparent than in her world-renowned Elvis portraits. With thousands of prints, these works document every period of Elvis' life and captures many of his subtle moods and unconscious gestures.

According to the new article on FOX17.com, "From a child that was intrigued by the king, to an Elvis super-fan and eventually the official artist for Elvis Presley Enterprises. These images make it easy to see why Betty Harper is known for capturing the spirit of Elvis like no one else can."

The “50 + Years with Elvis” Exhibit will be on display for FREE until the end of 2013 and fans can learn more by visiting MusiciansHallOfFame.com. Fans can also find several of Betty Harper's Elvis prints and artwork by visiting ShopElvis.com.
