Phoenicia Branch to Feature Artist Durga Yael Bernhard

Posted April 9, 2019


Ulster Savings Bank would like to invite the public to their 58 Main Street, Phoenicia branch to enjoy their latest art exhibit by artist Durga Yael Bernhard titled ‘Eye on the Mountains.’ Her exhibit features Catskill Mountains landscape paintings and will be on display for the month of April.

Durga Yael is the illustrator of three dozen children’s books and the author of nine – including fiction and non-fiction, natural science titles, and multicultural folktales. A common focus in Bernhard’s landscapes is the relationship of near and far. Large and small textures are juxtaposed to create a “painted polarity” between close and distant objects.

Durga Yael Bernhard lives in the Catskill Mountains of New York with her family. When she is not drawing and painting, she spends her free time hiking and foraging, gardening and cooking, dancing, drumming, and teaching. For more information about the artist, please visit durgabernhard.com.

For more information concerning the exhibit, please contact Samantha Awand-Gortel, Phoenicia Branch Manager, at 688-5965, ext. 6701.
