Beyond the Literal: Lynn Berryhill, Noel Logan, Pearl Meadows, Anne Weiler-Brown
The St. George Art Museum’s Beyond the Literal features Lynn Berryhill, W. Noel Logan, Pearl Meadows,
and Anne Weiler-Brown in the Main and Mezzanine Galleries.
Lynn Berryhill is a well known non-representational painter, who was a long time resident of Springdale, now residing in Tooele, UT. Her resume features a long list of exhibits, and gallery representation all over the West, work in collections, including the collection of the St. George Art Museum. As well, she is an experienced and sought after teacher around the globe in the area of personal creativity and growth. Her work probes the arena of dreams and interior states with rich saturated colors in varying paint thicknesses. They are moving, trancelike, vibrant, focused, visual poems.
W. Noel Logan of Toquerville, UT is the sole sculptor of the four artists. With an exceptional education that includes degrees not only in art, but archaeology and art history, he brings much experience to his unique metal sculptures that are forged in the shaving, smoke and process of creation. His aim is to explore the elements of pure design and space itself. Line, design, and metal materials join to encounter and engage the empty space.
Pearl Meadows, a resident of Springdale, UT, has a favorite quote by Marc Chagall, “Great art picks up where nature ends.” Pearl’s art often explores a single hue on a canvas through geometric brushstrokes, sometimes small, sometimes larger, less often with circular forms. After a decade of working in photography, she began to paint in 2004. In 2008 she also began to work in metals. Her paintings conjure up or allude to natural forms but reduce them to a refined essence of the inspiration. Her coloristic mastery creates depth.
Anne Weiler-Brown describes herself as an abstract expressionist artist. Her paintings are richly textured with palpable shapes that evoke the landscape next to where she lives on the Virgin River in Rockville. In addition to her painting, Anne has an impressive history of fundraising, organizing, and coordinating for organizations. An avid animal lover, her raw deep sculptural canvases take us into a primordial natural space.
