Evelyn Bernal and Linda Porreca: Echoes of Nature
Evelyn Bernal, One
Location: Right Gallery, first floor
Bernal and Porreca are both members of a local painting group, The Watercolor Connection, which exhibited here earlier this year. We are fortunate to be able to view a larger range of work by these two members.
Bernal uses watercolors and acrylics to give expression to her love of nature. Common themes are rivers and waterfalls, forests and flowers. Porreca paints animals and land and seascapes, also using watercolors or acrylics.
Fred Casselman: Big Sky, Bountiful Sky
Milky Way Outpost
Location: Left Gallery, first floor
Fred Casselman, photographer and digital artist, captures the emotion of the sky.
If Casselman finds the photo doesn't adequately express the feeling of the scene, he digitally enhances the photo so the viewer will have the same experience that inspired Casselman to try to capture the beauty before him.
More of Casselman's work is viewable at earthecho.com.
Dream: Robson Pereira
Location: Lebowitz Meeting Hall, lower level
Pereira came to the U.S. in 2007 from Minas Gerais, Brazil, where he studied law. In 2010 he started with the visual arts and has never stopped.
His creations are brightly colored, with many movements and strong expression. He draws his inspirations from nature, his family, his dreams and friends.
Pererira says, "art should not be differences of race, religion, social class, [or] politics, and yes, [should] proclaim the spirit of freedom, harmony, hope, strength, love and persistence.... If we stop to pay attention to nature we can see that she's not ashamed to show us all the splendor of color and life in the hope that human beings can live in harmony with mother nature. Within the smallest facets of mother nature we can always find wonder."

Nancy Rumpf, Painting
Location: Virtual Gallery, first floor
Fascinated by the process of painting, Rumpf likes to see how watercolors and other water media react to different painting surfaces and interact with each other. Her goal is to explore new artistic territory while experimenting with the essence of form, shape, color and value, her images are inspired by her observations, memories, and imaginings.
She has exhibited at the DeCordova Museum School Gallery, the Danforth Museum, the Art Complex in Duxbury, the Attleboro Arts Arts Museum and many other venues around New England. She teaches currently at the Danforth Museum School and the Concord Art Association, as well as privately at her home in Wellesley.
