If you’re in New York, take a trip north with Metro-North (or by car) to Pelham in Westchester and take a look at Swedish-born artist Siri Berg’s abstract work. Berg helps celebrate Pelham Art Center’s 40th anniversary with an opening reception on Friday, May 7 at 6:30 p.m. Looking Back: 40 Years at Pelham Art Center, organized by Marsha Morton and Andrea Bayer, includes a selection of artwork by exhibiting artists from all four decades.
Berg, who was born in Stockholm, studied at the Institute of Art and Architecture at the University of Brussels, Belgium as well as at New York’s Pratt Graphic Center.
In an interview a couple years ago, Berg said she feels at peace when she works.
“I hope this calmness translates to the viewer.”
Berg’s pieces are orderly and minimalist, clean and calm. A trip up to Pelham is worth the effort to see her internationally acclaimed work.
