"Often the landscape is a mass of abounding confusion. I try to emphasize the elements I want and disregard the rest," John Berry
On April 17th Modern West Fine Art will host "Color of Earth" a dual exhibition featuring the art of John Berry and Rob Colvin. Gallery stroll for this event runs from 6-8 pm.
As premier landscape painters of the American West, John Berry and Rob Colvin employ distinctive styles to showcase the stunning and expansive beauty of the West's desert terrain.
John Berry is the recipient of the Purchase Award (2011) and a Merit Award (2009) from the Sprinville Museum of Art. He also won a Jurors Award for his painting "Entering Kolob," from renowned art scholar Peter Hassrick, Director of the Institute of American Art at the Denver Art Museum. This painting was featured in the show and book, "A Century of Sanctuary: Zion National Park" at the St. George Art Museum.
