PAUL FREIDIN'S EXHIBIT OF ACRYLICS, MIXED MEDIA AND DIGITAL ART
AT BERKELEY COLLEGE EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE
Berkeley College is pleased to announce that the artwork of the late Paul Freidin, on display at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City, has been extended through June 30. The exhibit can be viewed Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Mr. Freidin was raised in Los Angeles, CA, where he developed an interest in drawing at the age of three. It would stay with him through his life as he studied at Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles, CA, and worked whenever he could with abstract expressionists. He completed his education at California State University, Los Angeles, CA, receiving both a BA and an MA in Anthropology.
Mr. Freidin always said the great painters that influenced him were Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Willem De Kooning. He exhibited his work in Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY; Las Vegas, NV; Denver, CO; and the United Kingdom.
He spent his last few years living in Pahrump, NV, where he specialized in acrylic, mixed media and digital art.
Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Midtown Manhattan and Brooklyn Galleries, said that Mr. Freidin had exhibited his work before at Berkeley College as part of the World Fine Art Group. “I have said time and again that he was a passionate and interesting abstract artist,” said Mr. Keiber. “I am pleased we have extended the exhibit of his artwork at Berkeley College.”
For more information about the exhibit, e-mail Mr. Keiber at rjk@BerkeleyCollege.edu or call 212-252-2065.
