Paronaxia Arts: "Souvenir"

Neva Bergemann
Painting Exhibition
Levantis Restaurant, Paroikia, PAROS
27 July - 24 August
Opening Reception: Saturday, 27 July at 8pm
Opening Hours: Daily 7-10pm

Which part of ourselves do we give away when we enter or leave a relationship and how much is kept each time as a souvenir? A souvenir is something that serves to keep alive the memory of a certain place, occasion, or person. In other words, objects treasured for their memories. The object itself has no real significance other than the psychological connection the possessor has with the object as a symbol of past experience. Without the owner's input, the object's meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated.

Painter Neva Bergemann lives on Paros and has earned degrees from the University of Minnesota (USA) in both studio arts and art education. The desire to continue her studies led her to Paros to study with Jane Morris Pack at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in 1997. Since then Neva has exhibited paintings both on Paros and in the United States. She established her own art workshops ‘Artists on the Move’ for artists and travelers during the summer months. Neva also teaches painting and drawing at the Hellenic International Studies in the Arts, a study abroad programme for university level students, based on Paros.
