Jose Berrios to be featured in Wotiz Gallery
Exhibit to run throughout month of August
During the month of August, the Milton Public Library will host talented painter Jose Berrios in the Wotiz Gallery. Mr. Berrios was born in Puerto Rico and has lived in the Boston area since the seventies. He attended P. R.’s Inter-American University for a Bachelors Degree in Education, and then received a Masters in Education from Antioch College in Ohio. He has been living in Milton for about 30 years and is a self-taught artist, having worked as a Special Education teacher in the public schools for his career. His paintings are very creative, modern in style, and mostly abstract, using many different patterns and shapes. He chooses oil paints to create them, and was originally “afraid of using strokes of paint” so started out with the technique of “punctualism” or dots to form the images. Many of the pieces are untitled, but you will see such an interesting variety in the images and shades of color in his body of work. This approach “makes the colors more interesting and they blend better” the artist says. He also uses knives to create lines in his paintings for texture. This summer exhibit is very unique, unusually bright and it is a fascinating experience to view. There will be a free and open reception held on Thursday, August 9th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Gallery where you can meet Jose in person. I encourage you to come visit the Library sometime before August 30th to check out this very cool display!
