Berkeley College is exhibiting the artwork of Serge Strosberg at its New York City Midtown Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 3 East 43rd Street. This exhibit will be on display from October 3 through 28--Monday through Friday--from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm and on Saturday from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. An artist’s reception will be held on Thursday, October 6, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
Mr. Strosberg was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and the Academie Julian in Paris, France. “Although being mainly a painter, I took photography classes with Peter Knapp, art director for Elle and Vogue, and was always immersed in the world of fashion.”
Now living in the heart of SoHo in New York City--an area noted for its artists’ lofts, art galleries, and wide variety of shops--he is surrounded by fashion storefronts, light, reflections, music, vibrations, marching crowds, and police sirens. “This constant flow of energy gives me the inspiration to paint,” he says.
Mr. Strosberg describes himself as “the Expressionist of Fashion.” He has had many solo exhibitions, including the Elaine Baker Gallery, Boca Raton FL; Alliance Francaise Gallery, Miami, FL; Ludwig Trossaert Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium; and the Philippe Fregnac Gallery, Paris, France. He also has shown his work at the New Century Artists, New York, NY; Himalayas Art Museum, Shanghai, China; Orangerie of the France Senate, Paris; and the Jewish Museum, Brussels, Belgium. He has received numerous awards, including a SoHo Artist Certification granted by New York City and the Allocation for Life of a landmark artist’s studio, Paris.
