9. Schitzo – Berberyan

Our next exhibit will feature Armenian-born painter, Ara Berberyan. The opening on October 28th (Saturday, 11am) will coincide with Downtown Freeport’s Bootiful Saturday event.

Known as “Arbe” in the art world, Berberyan is known for his abstract figurative paintings. Trapped in their own emotion states, Berberyan’s peculiar figures exemplify the strange and the mundane experiences we all face from time to time.

An occasional flourish of vibrant reds, blues, purple, green or lavender grabs and pulls us into their world. The effect is a mixture of expressionism and abstract movements, brimming with raw emotion, creating a world from Berberyan’s imagination.

    Dont forget, there’s still time to go through the corn maze and get pumpkins and gourds at Run a Muc Acres on Becker School rd south if Walmart. Follow the sign. And theres the final terror train ride on the 28th, across from the historical museum.
