Vivian Beer Exhibition at the Wexler Gallery

An exhibition of new work by innovative furniture artist Vivian Beer will be held at the Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia between January 2nd and February 28th, 2009.

An artist who sees her design process as “sophisticated daydreaming,” Vivian Beer creates functional objects that blur the line between contemporary design, craft, and sculpture.  Working primarily with steel, automotive paint, and occasionally wood, Beer is influenced by objects, images, and ideas that celebrate beauty and power.  According to the artist, such objects include flags, clouds, tides, feathers, car fenders, and even corporate logos.  Often anthropomorphic in form, the artist views each of her works as a “creature with a life of its own that can subtly transform the comfortable terrain of the domestic landscape.”

Beer has a BFA from Maine College of Art (2000) and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art (2004).  Her work has exhibited at The Mint Museum, Fuller Craft Museum, SOFA Chicago, Palm Beach 3, and The International Contemporary Furniture Fair.  Beer is currently an artist in residence at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, where she is working on a new body of expressive outdoor objects.
