A color-filled connection

This time of year, Mother Nature puts on a colorful show. This month, so does artist Joyce Berger. Through November 6, viewers can see her colorful abstract works at Rosemont College’s Lawrence Gallery.

Art is a welcome sight any day. On this dreary rainy day, her bright imaginings are especially welcome.

My conversation with Joyce resulted in this article: Bursts of color from a skateboard: “Floating Worlds” at Rosemont College. We talked a lot about her inspirations and her process. Who would have thought that a skateboarding grandson could inspire a series?

If you can’t get to the exhibit, this lovely video from the opening reception gives you a glance at the displayed pictures — many pretty and vibrant views to liven up your day.

  1. Thanks, Rhonda. Welcome! I’ve enjoyed your posts in Broad Street Review! 🙂 I was touched by her being inspired by her grandchildren, too. You never know where inspiration will come from, eh?

  2. I love art, and the idea that she got these images from watching her grandson just makes it all the more special for me. I think I’ll watch my grandchildren closes to help with my writing (laughs). Thanks for posting this Tara
