Linear Notions at the Nave Gallery

I am pleased to announce that the Nave Gallery, a wonderful alternative space in a church in Somerville, MA, run by the amazingly creative curator Susan Berstler, is featuring my work along with Francis Domec in a show called Linear Notions.

Our work shares an interest in line and bold color. It is an interesting pairing, and I am happy to show three of my 48" x 48" works on canvas and three of my hanging sculptures in this space. Also on view are four works on paper, the Sunday Series.

Join me for the opening reception on Sunday, February 9 from 3 to 5 pm. The gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 5 pm, and it will be on view through February 23.

Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Curator - Fitchburg Art Museum, had this to say about Appetite  
Appetite begins with instinct and results in vibrant, playful excess. Catherine Bertulli hosts the artist-organized pop-up exhibit in her large studio in Melrose, MA. Each artist toys with the seduction of the surface such as the draw of bright colors. Bertulli’s monumental towers are impressive illusions, shimmering columns of gold, turquoise and other brilliant tints. They are eye-catching objects. Yet the aniline dyes are fugitive­­–presenting only impermanent effects–and they are hollow, only a shell of architecture. Adria Arch’s palette too confesses her interest in forcing the unexpected through experimentation–freezing a mark in time and then responding to it, and intuitively combining fields of color with shapes and patterns.
