This Teacher Always Had a Love for Art – Now, See Carol Berger During Her Opening Reception
Celebrate the newest exhibit to hit Archway Gallery this Saturday evening! On April 6th, beginning at 5:00 p.m., Archway Gallery will host an opening reception for "From the Earth," an exhibit featuring decorative ceramics by Carol Berger. The artist will be on hand to visit with guests during the exhibition opening reception.
An avid art lover since her youth, Carol Berger studied art at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and explored art history in Europe before becoming a teacher. Upon retirement, Berger received what she refers to as “the gift of a second career in ceramics.” Berger’s artwork is often influenced by images, patterns and colors from nature. As an environmentalist and an avid reuse-recycler, Berger hopes that by creating work which reflects our natural world, others will be encouraged to join her efforts in protecting our earth.
This show is comprised of decorative pieces that include both stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. Many of Berger’s works focus on the use of a surface treatment described as “Naked Raku” on the porcelain to obtain the greatest degree of black and white contrast. Larger pieces, such as fountains, are designed in stoneware for durability outdoors. Some pieces are wheel-thrown and others are hand-built with the firing range of anywhere from low fire to Cone 9 depending on the desired finish.
Mark your calendars now for a stimulating opening reception in honor of Carol Berger! Admission to view “From the Earth” on opening night is free. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 2nd.
Even though Casa Palmas Apartments in Pasadena, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
