COBBLE HILL — Fall is about to hit the walls at two Bergen Street galleries.
Recession Art, a so-called "affordable art" studio at 47 Bergen St., will begin the season with a solo show of paintings, silk screens and concrete sculptures by artist Megan Berk from Sept. 7 to Oct. 6.
The show, titled “In Stillness This Fiction Is Real,” uses collages of personal photographs, film stills and magazine clippings to create a vision of domestic life inspired by the artist's memories of home, said Berk.
Berk, 34, described her work as “a little dark and a little dream-like.”
"Megan is definitely someone to keep an eye out for," said Emma Katz, executive director of Recession Art.
While the gallery’s pieces are usually priced under $1,000, the upcoming show features large-scale pieces that increase their cost, said Katz.
“Everything in Megan’s show will be under $5,000,” she said.
In October, the Cobble Hill gallery will host an exhibition of pop art. Recession Art is currently accepting submissions from artists for its “Pop Authentic” show.
The Invisible Dog Art Center, another gallery near Recession Art, begins its fall season on Sept. 7. The gallery will unveil its new exhibition space, called “The Glass House,” according to its website.
