|Ten Years of Water|
Solo Exhibition by Bay Area artist Pegan Brooke
483 Magnolia Avenue, Larkspur, 94939
Gallery Bergelli is proud to announce “Ten Years of Water” a solo exhibition of paintings by Bay Area artist Pegan Brooke. Opening June 6, with the Gallery Reception on June 8th from 4-6pm, and Artist Talk at 5pm, the exhibition continues through July 10, 2013.
Pegan Brooke creates ethereal abstract works that take their cues from the natural environment. Marked by rising and receding color fields, structured by natural patterns and rhythms, “Brooke's canvases communicate a sense of awe of the world around her, enveloping the viewer in meditative depictions of beauty that alternately soothe and stimulate.” –Anne C. Ray, Marin Magazine
30 paintings created in the last ten years will be presented in this survey exhibition. "Ten Years of Water" will consist of colorful river paintings inspired by observation of the river in Pont Aven, France, together with a collection of subtle Sea paintings inspired by the Bolinas Coast as well as the gorgeous shimmery canvases from the most recent body of work inspired by the high snow mountains in Sun Valley.
