Meet the Artist: Richard Bernheimer

Save the date: Join us on Sunday, January 6th at 6:30 PM for an art reception and an opportunity to meet Richard Bernheimer. 

Mr. Bernheimer has been admiring and collecting art for 50 years, however he never thought of himself as an artist.A year ago, during a visit to a gallery, he was inspired by a piece of contemporary art and was motivated to paint something on his own.  When he began painting on a flat surface he felt constrained so he experimented with constructing painted panels on top of one another for a more dimensional feel.  He has been busy developing this construction style ever since.  He enthusiastically states that this has been wonderful personal learning process and a fulfilling creative expression starting at the age of 77.

Richard's colorful contemporary painted panels and ceramic pieces, as well as jewelry pieces, are currently on display in the KOH Library and Cultural Center through February 6, 2013.
