Soundless LandscapesAn exhibit of paintings by Berges Alvarez
The exhibit opens at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, November 3, at 2 PM with a reception, and runs for two months.
Berges Alvarez paintings are made from collages of trash which are photographed and printed on large scale canvas. Soundless because no wind nor wave was ever heard from these imaginary landscapes.
