Two local resident artists are being featured in the show: Rainer ‘RB’ Bertram and Roberta ‘Berta’ Hornbeck. The works explore unconventional techniques and multi patterned paintings. Shape and line are driving forces.
For the artists, the use of color is important and often explosive. For this show both artists use their versatility and skill in demonstrating the expressive means in which color is used. For example, Rainer Bertram’s woodcuts are often whirl and twirl in seas of vibrant color. The woodcut lines placed in vibrant colors become more intense and allow the viewer to fully appreciate the overall intricacy line works. Roberta Hornbeck’s use of color to highlight our cityscape in a new and interesting perspective.
The show will also feature a 30-foot long upcycle installation made of plastic Dannon yogurt cups, titled “dragon.” The creative team is interested in promoting the decorative arts and the use of unconventional material in sculptures and installations.
