Images reflect her passion for "continually scavenging and exploring my need to create." Berntsen's exhibition features photographs capturing layers of gestural line and pools of highlights, depicting the fluid elements of light. "My work is a reminder of the irrepressible beauty in the cycle of time -- elements resembling structure, mythical landscapes or sensuous forms reflecting a dream state," he said. "As a witness on a journey, I meditate and am carried away out of self, into a reservoir of fleeting fragments of imagery -- words from a poem or a lyrical run of musical notes. These treasures from my experience coax me to acknowledge that another dimension exists where all is well, beautiful and complete." In addition to the exhibition inside the gallery, there is a special collaborative outdoor installation in the aviary. The aviary will feature a twisting and turning labyrinth of "way markers" with symbols created by Berntsen, decorated by Faber Savage with "eyeball" prints and images suggesting lucky, unlucky or "the evil eye," transferred onto actual balls of various sizes through paper lithography. The balls will be moveable and children will find the labyrinth a fun experience. The gallery, at 27 Westchester Ave., is open Wednesday to Saturday from 11 a.m.
