i spent a special day with daughter and her bestie at the gallery -- when she was little i'd follow her around with my camera trying to capture all her adventures and sweet moments. things move so much faster these days and it was a gift to spend time with anneclaire and her bff in the alpine art & frame gallery celebrating art, dance & friendship. here are my favs from the photoshoot. flip through the online show catalog here.
Other works in the exhibition, including “Angels’ Lullaby” and “I Want to Break Free,” deal with heavier topics such as healing and processing past events or letting go of old beliefs. Although these themes can be significantly heavy topics, Berg does not use them as an opportunity to dump dark colors and painful subjects onto her canvases. Just as in “I’ve Got Plenty to Be Thankful For,” Berg subverts these deeper messages with her light, feminine and deeply symbolic creations. If there is one thing the exhibition solidifies, it is that broad and heavy issues do not become diluted when expressed in feminine colors and themes.
