IRVING PENN + MARIA BERRIO ON NY ART TOURS

IRVING PENN + MARIA BERRIO ON NY ART TOURS

Art critic and tour guide, Merrily Kerr New York Art Tours always picks a great range of shows, with a little something for everyone. I was excited to see the Pace Gallery show “On Assignment” on the itinerary! The show, which focuses on Irving Penn’s commissioned work has been on my list of must see shows. An amazing collection of portraits, fashion and still life, the show did not disappoint.

 

Merrily then took us to see Maria Berrio’s “Dream Gardens” show at Praxis Art. Berrio is a young artist, originally from Columbia who received her BFA from Parsons and MFA from School of Visual Arts. Her work consists of these extraordinary collage-like works that are a mixture of watercolor and Japanese paper.
