Rick Berry Exhibit: Seeing in the Dark

Unfortunately I'll be a the World Con this upcoming week -- otherwise I'd loved to catch the opening for Rick Berry's solo exhibit. If you are in the New England area, this is where the cool kids will be:

Sharon Arts Exhibition Gallery
August 7-30
Opening reception: August 7 5:00-7:00pm
Artist Talk: August 22nd, 4:30-6:00
Peterborough, NH

He'll be exhibiting large paintings and charcoal drawings, including a series of drawings done while artist-in-residence at the Boston Opera. He spent a season behind the scenes attending rehearsal, tech, costuming for Shostokovich's "The Nose." The result is a great series of large, expressive, and often darkly comedic drawings.

I am sorry to miss this -- perhaps we can get Mr. Robert Wiener (publisher of Donald Grant Books) to take a few shots to share. (Robert!?) In meantime, you can take a peek into Rick's studio in this Flickr set.
