Gallery Walk to Feature Works on Nature and Grief
Friday, July 8, 2022


New York-born Dara Mark made her mark early as one of the first women to graduate from Yale College with a major in architecture in 1971. She went on to get a Master’s in ceramics from the University of California-Santa Barbara.

And, more recently she created a body of paintings called “The Healing Garden,” made over a five-year period after her husband died. The watercolor on layered Yupo paper paintings, which reflect her emotional state during various stages of grieving and healing will be on exhibit during tonight’s Gallery Walk from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Friesen+Lantz Gallery.

Accompanying Mark’s works will be the carved and hewn tree trunks of Jason Middlebrook; the colorful totems, cairns, and flags of R. Nelson Parrish, and new works by Ketchum encaustic artist Suzanne Hazlett.

The gallery, at 320 North 1st Ave. North, will be open for Gallery Walk from 5 to 7:30 p.m. tonight—Friday, July 8—along with other Ketchum galleries.

A few other highlights:

  • Kneeland Gallery is hosting a solo exhibition featuring works by Ovanes Berberian. Born in Russian Armenia, Berberian trained under his father, a noted artist and professor, during the height of the Armenian colorist movement. He continued his formal education under the internationally acclaimed impressionist Sergei Bongart.

    A plein air purist, Berberian paints on location as he paints lush surfaces with a lively interplay of color. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections worldwide. He will be present during Gallery Walk.

  • Gail Severn Gallery, 400 First Avenue North, is having a retrospective featuring works by the late Chinese-American artist Hung Liu, who grew up during the Maoist Revolution based her paintings on historical photographs.
