Indianapolis abstract artist Katherine Musser Berry, and her show, “The Peace of Wild Things” will be featured for the June IDADA First Friday Art Tour, June 3rd, 6-9pm. Admission is free. Inspired by a poem by Wendell Berry, each piece of Musser Berry’s show will communicate a different line of the poem, creating a show about living with grief, love, grace, fear, and tenderness.
“In the past few years, I’ve experienced a lot of changes—I lost my older brother unexpectedly, I got married, friendships changed, I gave birth to the most perfect little boy in all the world, how do you talk about all of that?” said Musser Berry. “The poem says so much with not very many words—eleven lines to be exact. The show consists of 12 paintings, one for each line in the poem and one I added myself.”
About Katherine Musser Berry
Katherine Musser Berry is a 26-year-old IUPUI Communication graduate currently living on the near-west side of Indianapolis. She and her husband have one son and a cocker spaniel/poodle mix. Often inspired by her environment, Musser Berry works in contemporary abstracts, using neutrals with pops of bright, bold color.
“I almost always paint scenes of my daily life around downtown, buildings, architecture, the growth and change in my neighborhood, but this series focuses more on scenes from ‘The Great Outdoors,’ rivers trees and some beautiful places in nature,” said Musser Berry. “I’ve heard people talk about trying to capture the colors in nature and refer to it as ‘the Master’s Palette.’ It may be impossible to capture all the color, all the life and death and in-between, but it is fun to try.”
