From Here to Modernity
Carole Berren

Carole Berren, a URI alumna, has been painting and teaching drawing and watercolor to adults for over twenty years. She teaches private studio classes as well as offers classes, demonstrations and workshops through various art associations in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Carole’s work has been exhibited throughout New England and has traveled as far south as Florida and west to Colorado. Her work is also included in many private, public and corporate collections in the US, Europe, Africa, Australia and Japan. Carole has won numerous awards and recognition for her work. Her most recent is her acceptance into this year’s American Watercolor Society’s juried international exhibition in New York City, where her painting will be on display during the month of April before traveling throughout the country. Her work also appeared at the 2000 Rocky Mountain Watercolor Society’s national juried watermedia exhibit in Colorado.

Carole’s professional affiliations (elected artist member) include: Mystic Art Association, Newport Art Association, North Shore Art Association (MA), Providence Art Club, Rhode Island Watercolor Society, South County Art Association and Wickford Art Association.

Artist’s statement

I am intrigued by the relationships—the similarities and the paradoxes—of man to his environment, to the eternal energies of the magnificent oceans, to the promises of the lotus bud, to the changes in nature that we call progress. I look forward to my own learning, searching and growth as I sit in the cocoon of my own metamorphoses. I am not yet a butterfly. If my work has triggered a memory, touched a nerve or sparked a dream, then I am pleased that we have been able to share that moment.
