THR33: Works by Berlin, Groot and Bullington


June 9, 2012 - July 6, 2012


THR33: Works by Nancy Berlin, Helma Groot and Mary Boxley Bullington  to open Saturday, June 9, 2012 at The Art Store in Charleston, WV.  Three nationally known artists will be on exhibit at The Art Store from June 9 through July 6, 2012. The exhibition will open on June 9th with an afternoon reception to honor the artists from 1:30PM to 4:30PM. The show will feature color and concept as a central aspect. Both abstract and figurative works will be included.


Nancy Berlin creates works based on her recollection of what her eyes can capture. Her work is a conceptual response to the natural surroundings of the landscape fleshed out in various materials such as oil stick, ink and acrylic on paper and panel. Helma Groot’s wall relief and mobile sculptures touch on the idea of surroundings but focus on personal possessions rather than nature. The physical presence of Groot’s pieces appear playful with abstracted figures enveloped in a mass of common objects. Mary Boxley Bullington will round out the exhibition with color and rhythm in a range of works that ebb and flow between non-representational and abstracted figurative works to imply a narrative. She often employs the use of paper to transition between painting and collage.


These artists have had numerous solo exhibitions around the country and are included in many private and public collections such as The Spectrum Group (Johnson & Johnson, Inc.), Roanoke, VA; UVA Hospital, Charlottesville, VA;  Boston Public Library, Boston, MA; Davis Museum, Wellesley, MA; Neiman Marcus, Boston, MA. Nancy Berlin is the recipient of a NEA Fellowship Grant for Work on Paper. Helma Groot is known for her commissioned works in public places, including Ohio’s Port Columbus International Airport and Toledo Children’s Hospital.
