As a painter, printmaker, and installation artist, Berrisford Boothe wishes he had more time for his own creative endeavors, but his dedication to teaching and passion for watching his Lehigh University students succeed redirects his focus. He is a Lafayette graduate from the class of ’83, a member of Lafayette’s McDonough Society and Easton resident.
The exhibition includes recent shaped paintings such as That Which is Necessary and Available, 2010-11, acrylic, ink and acrylic polymers on panel, 40 inches diameter.
“The circle is the most recognizable shape in our memory. By choosing the form most embedded in our psyche, experiences and central to all design, I can unleash any and all elements in the process of discovery and in the end its potency will be amplified within the context of the forever familiar-circle.”
Public reception for the artist, Saturday, June 11, 4-5:30 pm
