Art Al­liance shows work at Her­itage of Green Hills ex­hibit

The Community Connection - - ENTERTAINMENT - From David Cul­ver

The Her­itage of Green Hills, a healthy life plan com­mu­nity, hosted a pub­lic re­cep­tion for the open­ing of an ex­hi­bi­tion of art­work by 10 mem­bers of the Berks Art Al­liance (BAA) on July 13.

The 10 artists have formed a cri­tique group that meets ev­ery other month to show their art­work, ei­ther fin­ished or in progress, to be dis­cussed by the other mem­bers. The dis­cus­sions are in­for­ma­tive, ben­e­fit­ing the artist and of­fer­ing in­sights for the oth­ers. The cri­tiques are con­struc­tive and pos­i­tive in na­ture, em­pha­siz­ing con­cept, el­e­ments of com­po­si­tion, color or con­trast, and of­ten all of these el­e­ments.

“The seven Her­itage res­i­dents that are mem­bers of the cri­tique group find the dis­cus­sions to be in­tel­lec­tu­ally stim­u­lat­ing, and they help them to con­tinue to grow as artists,” said Ch­eryl An­der­son, Well by De­sign di­rec­tor for The Her­itage. “And, the Berks Art Al­liance plays a vi­tal role in pro­mot­ing and en­rich­ing the vis­ual arts in this re­gion.”

The BAA en­cour­ages artists by pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tional work­shops, in­spi­ra­tion through trips to mu­se­ums and art events, ex­hi­bi­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for mem­bers and non-mem­bers, and shar­ing in­for­ma­tion about the local arts scene. The BAA also en­gages with the arts com­mu­nity by par­tic­i­pat­ing in art demon­stra­tions and sup­port­ing char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions to help keep the arts in Berks County alive and grow­ing.
