BERKELEY COLLEGE PRESENTS ARTISTS OF QUALITY -  

THE AMERICAN SOCIETY

OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS EXHIBITION      

Berkeley College is exhibiting the work of dedicated professional artists who represent the American Society of Contemporary Artists (ASCA) organization at the Brooklyn Gallery, 255 Duffield Street, Brooklyn.  This exhibit will be on display from November 7, 2011 through January 4, 2012--Monday through Friday--from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm and on Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  The show will consist of 30 works of art--paintings, drawings, and sculptures.  An artists’ reception will be held on Saturday, November 12, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. 

Founded in 1917, the ASCA is a national, not-for-profit exhibiting art organization of professional painters, sculptors, and printmakers.  Artists of excellence are selected on merit by a revolving jury of their peers.  The membership seldom exceeds more than 100 artists who voluntarily contribute their time according to their varied talents to the maintenance and continuing development of the organization.

Artist-members participate in public lectures and art demonstrations as well as in the presentation of awards that encourage the development of others within the arts community.  In keeping with the original mandate of bringing quality art before the general public, the annual art student awards and scholarship sponsorships are ongoing events.  

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