Last night daughter Pearl, had her first solo show at the Rowster at 632 Wealthy St. She has been working on these water color paintings for several months. It has been wonderful to seem this series develop and grow. Pearl is an avid reader of contemporary fiction as well as old folk tales and ancient mythology. Her love for story is evident in this new series which is populated with powerful looking young women in natural settings that often include evidence of civilization on the downturn. There is a story here but it remains enigmatic and up to the viewer to construct.
If you are still working your way through your Christmas shopping one of these tastefully framed water color drawings by Pearl Beerhorst would be unique and long lasting gift for that special person in your life. There are ten different 14"x8" pieces priced at $150 and one 22"x33" for $300. This is an emerging artist who has made a powerful first statement of her of her unique and personal vision.
