RED BANK, NJ – The Navesink Maritime Heritage Association will have the renowned marine painter Nick Berger at a free public presentation being held at Bahrs Landing Restaurant, on Wednesday, February 20th, from 7:30pm – 9:00pm.
Berger’s paintings have been exhibited in high-end galleries in New York, Connecticut, and in Beacon Fine Arts in Red Bank, NJ.
Exhibiting with the famous Andrew Wyeth, Berger began to train himself to work in other mediums and found himself drawn to the New York working waterfront of the early and mid-20th century. Some are very large (up to 10 feet in length), and most done in oil.
Berger will speak about his art and what compelled him to create marine art after decades of success with rural landscapes. His paintings focus on the rivers and waters of the working New York City waterfront up to the mid-20th Century.
Berger's depictions are of tug boats, ferries (including the Albertina, shown above, which regularly docked in Red Bank) and ferry terminals.
This will be a very informative and inspirational presentation – mark your calendar!
