BERKELEY COLLEGE PRESENTS

ACRYLIC PAINTINGS OF MIRIAM BRUMER -

ARTWORK THAT BEGINS WITH NATURE   

Berkeley College is exhibiting the artwork of Miriam Brumer at its New York City Midtown Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 3 East 43rd Street.  This exhibit is on display from March 5 through 30 – Monday through Friday – from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  An artist’s reception will be held on Thursday, March 15, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.   

An avid artist from an early age, Ms. Brumer was raised in New York City, and went on to receive a BA in Art and Music from the University of Miami, FL, and an MFA in Painting from Boston University, MA. 

“My work has always used nature as a starting point,” says Ms. Brumer. “Initially, I focused on a particular aspect or specimen – be it an orchid, insect, or shell form – and  strove to depict it.  Gradually, I became increasingly intrigued by the intrinsic characteristics of natural forms, and less concerned with their outer appearances.  In my paintings and drawings, units coexist in a state of imminent animation.  There is a sense that they flutter, breathe, propel themselves, extend, expand, and are engaged in busy interacting with each other.” 

Ms. Brumer has exhibited across the United States in numerous solo and group shows, including:  Skoto Gallery, New York, NY; Elisa Contemporary Art, Riverdale, NY; Rupert Ravens Contemporary, Newark, NJ; Third Ward Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Westnorth Studio, Baltimore, MD; and Conant Hall Gallery, Princeton, NJ.  Her work is in the permanent collection of JPMorgan Chase; the Payne Gallery of Moravian College; the Bank of New York; Bell Laboratories at Alcatel-Lucent; and various others.   She is featured in “Who’s Who in American Art” and the “World Who’s Who of Women.”  

For more details about the exhibit, please e-mail Berkeley Gallery Curator Robert Keiber at rjk@BerkeleyCollege.edu. or call 212-252-2065.
