My piece, Fossilized Color – Catch and Release, debuted at The Butler Institute of American Art last week. The Butler has held an annual juried exhibition called The Midyear for the past 76 years. It’s a real gem of a museum, and I have always wanted to have my work shown there. I was told that a few thousand artists entered their work and the jury chose approximately 100 pieces for the show. Also in the museum was a wonderful solo show of Joan Mitchell’s bold and beautiful large works
Here’s a couple of pictures of my piece from the event, June 24th – August 19th 2012:
PuzzleArt PathWays to Brain Fitness by Long Island artist Alli Berman is an interactive art installation in the Tilles Center Atrium and offers creative activities which help develop increased cognitive function for all ages and abilities.
“PuzzleArt Pathways to Brain Fitness”, is an enlarged, multi-media, free flowing interpretation of Berman’s original hands-on art which has a therapeutic aspect, and her PuzzleArt Therapy System, which is used by health professionals in 16 countries to help develop increased cognitive function. Different populations can work on 20 different skills to help improve: memory, focus, letter and word recognition, concentration for sports, creativity, perceptual learning, oculomotor skills and more for success in school, business, and life. Berman’s interactive installation will be at Tilles Center through August 2013.
Join us Sunday, December 2nd from 3:30pm – 5:30pm at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in the Atrium for a short multi-generational program and the inauguration of this New Public Art Form.
There will be a “meet the artist” talk where Berman shares her brain fitness secrets to leading a more creative life and there will be a short guided art “happening”as well as informal brain fitness activities for all ages and abilities. Bring the grandparents, bring the kids!
Refreshments will be served.
Interactive installation art ranges up to 100 feet long and can include more than one thousand individual small paintings which can be moved around and rearranged. People create their own personal expression from Berman’s original painting. Her original, brightly colored, highly textured original art has been enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities ages 3 to 103.
