"This show does define Bernier’s career and it does argue, effectively, that he deserves to be remembered, appreciated for his skills, and to take his place in local art history."
- Ray Rinaldi, Denver Post
In celebration of Denver Arts Week, join Bobbi Walker of Walker Fine Art, Marilyn Bernier, and Arvada Center Director of Galleries and Curator Collin Parson with a tour of the exhibition Roland Bernier: In Other Words.
Influential text-based conceptualist Roland Bernier experimented with symbols and language by assembling words together, exploiting the visual characteristics rather than the meaning. The resulting paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations mix Bernier’s use of text with his bold colors, strong lines, and vast diversity of materials. Bernier, who passed away in 2015, was a fixture of Colorado’s art scene throughout his career.
