The Bossier Arts Council’s Wine Art Music (WAM) is thrilled to announce an exhibition of artwork by regional artist Jerry Berg. His works will be on display in 1800 Prime Steakhouse at Boomtown Casino from October 11th to December 2nd with a WAM opening reception on November 1st from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. There is a $15 entry fee for this event for a selection of wine and hors d’ oeuvres.
Berg, a contemporary realist painter, has been drawing, painting and printmaking from a very early age. After working in graphic design, Berg began working with traditional oils based on the old master techniques. When asked about his creative process he answered “I owe obvious and conscious debt to the great masters of 350 years ago. With every brushstroke, I strive to meet the example they set; in balanced and graceful composition, clear observation and precise execution. That being said, I live and work very much in the present day. Although the influence is usually subtle, the modern sensibility inevitably expresses itself. I take a real delight in discovering the marriage of these two worlds.”
WAM is a group initiative between the Bossier Arts Council, Boomtown Casino and the Shreveport Symphony committed to promoting art work of regional artists. It is located in 1800 Prime Steakhouse at 300 Riverside Drive, Bossier City, LA. The hours of operation are Wednesday and Sunday 5-9pm and Friday and Saturday 5-10pm.
