In the Gallery at R&F:

A solo exhibition by painter Charles Forsberg. The show will run from August 7th – September 18th, 2010.

Charles Forsberg is a self-taught abstract painter currently based in Berlin. He grew up in northern British Columbia, Canada. Before relocating to France two years ago, he spent a dozen years in Vancouver, working as a docent at the Vancouver Art Gallery, giving educational tours. Charles has also collaborated on large-scale set design for Ballet British Columbia and the Banff Centre for the Performing Arts. Charles goes where his paintings go, and so for this exhibition at R&F Handmade Paints, he has relocated temporarily to Tivoli in the Hudson Valley, where he very recently created all the works in this show.
