The Lifted Veil: Photography by Phyllis Arbesman Berger

September 21 , 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Lifted Veil

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

For many years, fine art photographer Phyllis Arbesman Berger saw the world through a cloudy veil because of cataracts. During that time, she concentrated on making images in black and white. And then a miracle: cataract surgery and the world came alive in blazing color, full of intensity, as well as dreamy subtlety.

This group of photographs, ranging from infrared to color, shows how her view of the world has changed by revisiting photographs of her favorite places in Ireland; Brittany, France; and the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and reimagining them in glorious technicolor through the magic of Photoshop. The exhibition will be on view in Evergreen’s North Wing Gallery from April 29 through September 25, 2022. Hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed Mondays and July Fourth.
