Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, Features Works by Bert Beirne to Benefit Frankie Lemmon Foundation

Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, will present the exhibition, Sense & Sensuality - The Art of the Still Life, featuring works by Bert Beirne. The exhibition, a fundraiser for The Frankie Lemmon Foundation, will be on view from Oct. 10 through Nov. 15, 2003

Still lives remind us that beauty and intellectual pleasures surround us always. In this genre, the ordinary becomes special and worthy of our attention and appreciation.

Beirne has been painting the still life for nearly three decades and is considered one of the important painters of the genre living today. Since receiving her BFA from the University of Cincinnati, Beirne's work is most often compared to the Dutch and Flemish masters of the early 17th century; painters such as Kalf and Heda. Working with only natural light from a northern exposure and using multiple layers of translucent oil glazes, Beirne is able to create works of great depth and astonishing realism. The process is a slow and patient one, resulting in pictures of remarkable clarity and arresting beauty. Beirne has won numerous awards at regional and national shows and has works in many prominent collections including that of The Comer Museum, NationsBank, and King & Spalding. This will be her first Solo exhibition North Carolina.

Gallery C and Beirne are proud to collaborate with The Frankie Lemmon Foundation to raise money to support the education of children with developmental disabilities. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of one prominent work in the show will go to this important cause.
