  • Chris Berti – “Concerning Nature”

    Chris Berti

    CONCERNING NATURE

    March 19 – April 19, 2014

    Sculptor Chris Berti is fascinated with the colors and textures of 19th century brick paving stones.  The amazing warmth and variety will be evident in his small scale sculptures incorporating the brick’s shape, earth colors, and at times, text of the brick manufacturer with carved imagery.  Berti, an active NCECA exhibitor, has been the recipient of numerous awards and has work in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, DC; Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, MI; and the Frederick Meijer Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids, MI.

    This exhibition is held in conjunction with NCECA – the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts.  The conference is held March 20-23.
