Berkeley Arts Council is presenting an eclectic gathering of works for its 11th annual Art & Earth Exhibit. Each piece contains an energy, vibrancy and relevance of the “now” that collectively represent a fullness of “Life” in its various states of whimsy and stolid grace. Some of the works selected are “states of being” that present actual scenarios and experiences. Some are fantastical or futuristic. Some come forth as alter egos, portraits or self-portraits. Some are visual renditions of abstract thoughts that represent form, color, and movement, the core message remaining somewhat obscure or direct. Some are observations of and within distinct or obtuse environments and some are the haunting products of brief, yet profound experiences that may have emerged from life-altering events. Others portray concepts and methodologies that remain mysterious or vague.
The exhibit opened on Earth Day, April 22 and runs through May 29. Details online at BerkeleyArtsWV.org/category/arts-events.By Staff Contributor
