9/13/11

Berkeley College is exhibiting the work of artists Julian Caso, Louis Mendez and Luis Soler at 255 Duffield St., Brooklyn. This exhibit will be on display through Wednesday, Oct. 26. Louis is a member of the AU classes of 1952 and 1954.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

An artists' reception will be held on Friday, Sept. 16 from 4 to 6 p.m.

According to Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Brooklyn and New York City Midtown location galleries, the selected works are diverse."I chose each of these artists - Julian Caso, Louis Mendez, and Luis Soler - to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month because of their excellent reputations and considerable skills, and because they offer three distinctly different perspectives and styles in the Hispanic tradition," said Keiber."I was very lucky and quite thrilled to be able to schedule all three very busy artists for this exhibit."

Louis is a sculptor and potter who was born in New York City and holds Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in industrial design from Alfred University. His ceramic sculptures have been exhibited in galleries all over the world, including in New York City, Italy and France. He first gained recognition at the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts Ceramic Nationals. He has only recently returned to painting, and his work in sculpture greatly influences his new paintings.
