Event Details

Franconia Sculpture Park is pleased to present I’ve Never Seen the Northern Lights, a solo exhibition by New London, Minnesota-based artist Lisa Bergh. Opening January 29, 2022 in the Mardag Gallery at Franconia Commons, Bergh creates work that examines the cerebral and aesthetic weight of our internal, emotional worlds. Sitting precariously at the intersection of painting, drawing, and sculpture, Bergh draws on a visual language rooted in figuration, abstraction, color, place, and architecture. This new body of work serves simultaneously as fragmented studies and completed works all at once, residing somewhere between the ephemeral and the tangible.

The exhibition opens at Franconia Commons on Saturday, January 29, 2022 with a public reception with the artist from 4pm-6pm. I’ve Never Seen the Northern Lights will run until April 10, 2022.

Please also join the artist for a virtual “Dinner & Discussion” lecture via Facebook Live at 6pm on Tuesday, January 25, 2022.
