DESCRIPTION

Gallery Bergelli is proud to announce “Ten Years of Water” a solo exhibition of paintings by Bay Area artist Pegan Brooke. Opening June 6, with the Gallery Reception on June 8th from 4-6pm, and Artist Talk at 5pm, the exhibition continues through July 10, 2013.

Pegan Brooke creates ethereal abstract works that take their cues from the natural environment. Marked by rising and receding color fields, structured by natural patterns and rhythms, “Brooke's canvases communicate a sense of awe of the world around her, enveloping the viewer in meditative depictions of beauty that alternately soothe and stimulate.” –Anne C. Ray, Marin Magazine

30 paintings created in the last ten years will be presented in this survey exhibition. "Ten Years of Water" will consist of colorful river paintings inspired by observation of the river in Pont Aven, France, together with a collection of subtle Sea paintings inspired by the Bolinas Coast as well as the gorgeous shimmery canvases from the most recent body of work inspired by the high snow mountains in Sun Valley.

Pegan Brooke's paintings have been exhibited for many years, including exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum, SFMOMA, Oakland Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, Des Moines Art Center and Museum, Sao Paulo Biennale and the Monterey Museum of Art. Brooke is a recipient of a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Artist Grant, two Marin Arts Council Grants, and an alternate award for the Prix de Rome. She was also awarded Artist in Residency fellowships at the Millay Colony for the Arts in New York and five residencies at the Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in France. Brooke's paintings have been reviewed in numerous publications, including The LA Times, The SF Examiner, The New York Times and Art in America. Pegan Brooke’s work is held in numerous public and private collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, U.S. Embassies in Sri Lanka and Bolivia, Mills College, University of Nebraska Art Museum, State of Iowa Capitol Building, Bank of America International Headquarters, Standard Oil Corporation, Prudential Insurance Company, Security Pacific Bank, Oracle Headquarters, Meredith Corporation, McDonald Corporation, The Principal Financial Group, Unocal Corporation, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Anderson Collection, Roselyn Swig Collection, Charles R. Schwab, and Steven Chase Collection.
