BERKELEY COLLEGE PRESENTS THE WORLD FINE ART GROUP -
ARTISTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
Berkeley College is exhibiting the work of a variety of artists at the Brooklyn location gallery, 255 Duffield Street, Brooklyn, NY. This exhibit will be on display from July 14 through September 27. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. An artists’ reception will be held on Thursday, July 19, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
“We’re presenting the World Fine Art Group – a collection of nine artists from all over the world,” says Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Brooklyn and New York City Midtown location galleries. “We’re pleased to exhibit the work of these talented, well-known artists at our Brooklyn location this summer.”
Featured artists include:
O’Delle Abney – Mr. Abney started Abney Galleries in Soho, then moved to Chelsea where he opened World Fine Art Gallery. His new series of artwork is called Canvas on Canvas.
Paul Freidin – Mr. Freidin began drawing as a child during World War II, and was greatly influenced by jazz musicians like Charley Parker, John Contrane and Miles Davis.
Sandra Gottlieb – Ms. Gottlieb is a fine arts photographer who has exhibited widely throughout the United States. Much of her work has a personal connection to the sea.
Mitra Dejkameh Reyhani – Ms. Reyhani lived in Iran and Turkey before moving to the United States in 1999. Currently, she works in the Queens Museum of Art’s education department with ArtAccess, facilitating Art as Therapy workshops for children and adults with special needs.
Kathleen Sidwell – Ms. Sidwell has a unique style all her own, and is known for her dreamlike abstract prints and her thick sculptural paintings. Along with making art, she has played a major role in many art communities.
Yvette Sikorsky – Ms. Sikorsky’s career began in France in the mid 1950s. Although art critics subsequently labeled the artist an abstract-expressionist, she feels her work is neither abstraction nor expressionism, but “wind-blown created motifs.”
Victor M. Trejo – Mr. Trejo says he didn’t discover his pictorial vocation until the age of 27, but his aesthetic sensibility remained deeply marked at 18. A strong spiritual crisis combined with readings of Shakespeare, Goethe, Whitman and Victor Hugo brought him to the existence of a new world of vast and transcendent significations.
TEN – TEN’s works of oil on panel focus on biomorphic phenomena and evolutionary forces forming the basis of gender interaction. His images are floral and organic.
Cedric Van Eenoo – Mr. Van Eenoo is a multidisciplinary artist, painter, musician, writer and university professor. He says his ink paintings “are an interpretation of the principles of quantum physics in a poetic aesthetic.”
