Nick will talk about his art and what compelled him to create marine art after decades of success with rural landscapes.He is drawn to the rivers and waters of the working New York City waterfront up to the mid 20th Century, and some of his paintings are very large depictions of tug boats, ferries (including the Albertina) and ferry terminals, and scenes of mixed ships and merchant vessels in and around the New York City and East Coast.

About Nick Berger

Nicholas "Nick" Berger is a listed artist whose early works in watercolor achieved national and international acclaim. After sold-out shows with Andrew Wyeth, Nick began training himself to work in other mediums. In this self-exploration he found himself drawn to the New York working waterfront of the early and mid-20th century. Most of these paintings are in oil and some are very large (up to 10 feet in length). (Right: The Ellen Jordan, Sandy Hook Pilot Schooner)
