Exhibiting the Art of  Ivy Michelle Berg   April 15 - June 15, 2019

“My work is inspired by a life-long love affair with the natural world. I was that kid who lifted rocks and rotted logs, eager to behold the living treasures underneath, breathed wildlife documentaries, and devoured each new issue of Ranger Rick! I am fascinated by life on our beautiful planet in all its forms. Painting enables me to connect more deeply with this life, understanding its intricacies, its workings, and its most detailed and unique structures. I've painted creatures as small as mosquitoes and as large as elephants. Their eyes fascinate me most, sometimes complex alien mosaics...often pools so deeply human that it's hard to imagine we're different from them at all. Art is reflection, and I'm thankful to have the opportunity to reflect a world so rich in color, texture and diversity. Each painting enables me to learn more about the beings I love and to share my discoveries with those around me. I hope you'll enjoy this window from my eyes into their eyes and sense a bit of that which connects us all.”
