In the Gallery Sundays in October, 12 – 2 p.m.  Donna Berger Award-winning painter and illustrator Donna Berger is featured in the gallery through October 30th. Berger’s work includes expressive realism portraits, life drawings, and sketches of children, people, and pets created using acrylics on canvas, and ink, crayons, and colored pencils on paper.

Berger’s interest in art started at a young age, taking classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art and later at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Her passion for art continued through college, first as an art major at Bowling Green State University and then graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cameron University. Berger works as a graphic designer in Andover where she also curates employee art shows and teaches drawing. After hours, she is an artist-in-residence at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts.
