Friday, April 5th, 6pm-9pm
For the next First Friday in Manayunk, we are happy to feature artist Bianca Bernier. We are hosting a reception to launch the month-long showing of Bianca’s modern and thought-provoking art at The Spiral Bookcase. Refreshments will be provided. Come on out and support local talent!
Bio: Bianca Bernier graduated from Kutztown University in 2010, earning her BFA in painting. She received the Karen L. Anderson Memorial Award for Excellence for the fine arts department on behalf of the entire graduation class. Her work has been in a number of juried shows, most notable the 25th International Juried Show Silver Anniversary at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, Juried by Joan Young the Associate Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. As of recently, Bianca was also accepted into the “Formations” International Juried Exhibition for the Maryland Federation of the Arts. The online show will begin August 1st, 2012. Still portraying the same surrealist influence with fleshy appendages and obsessive detailing, the direction Bianca is exploring lately in her work is the concentration on drawing and mixed media with more vibrancy in the colour palette and intense lines to create drama. Bianca lives and works in Blue Bell, PA.
