Listen to our interview with Jon Burger, Marketing and Gallery Director of the Craven Arts Council and Gallery at the Bank of the Arts in New Bern, NC, to find out about the latest happenings at the Gallery!

The Craven Arts Council presents the work of Nada Behr in the Director’s Gallery at Bank of the Arts this July. Nada’s work focuses on landscapes and natural life in the medium of watercolors and acrylics. The exhibition will be open July 5th through July 30th, with an opening reception during the July 8th Artwalk, 5 – 8pm.

Speaking of her work, Nada says “art is discovery… color is happiness.” This philosophy is evident in her body of work, which makes marvelous use of bright, intense colors combined in a manner that reveals a detailed understanding of color theory.  Her work makes use of both wet and dry techniques, showing technical finesse in her chosen media. Nada works vary in scale from miniature to medium scale, with themes of landscapes, flora, and rural scenes.

Behr feels that through observation and exploration art becomes a growing, learning, and changing experience. “Skills in using color relationships, shape, contrast, harmony, and composition result in the reflection of one’s own rewarding experience.”

Nada received her B.A. in Arts Education from Adelphi University. Her work has garnered recognition from the Eastern Watercolor Society of North Carolina, Twin Rivers Artist’s Association, Greenville Museum of Art, and signature membership in the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. Her work is included in numerous private business and collections throughout Eastern North Carolina and beyond.
