“Morphology: Works on Paper,” an exhibit by Lincolnville artist Dyan Berk, is on view through Nov. 28 in the Hall Gallery of Miles Memorial Hospital, 35 Mils St. off Route 129.

The work in Berk’s show is the result of an ongoing investigation of the language of form and how it relates to the inner self — the world of feeling and pure expression. Spontaneity, imagination and playfulness are highly valued elements in this artistic process. The title refers to the myriad forms of living organisms and the relationships of things both organic and inorganic. This work reveals a dynamic interconnection that suggests the possibility of a physical and spiritual transformation.

Berk grew up in Chicago and received her bachelor degrees of fine art and education from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Fla. She moved to Maine in 1982 and had been living on Monhegan Island until July.

Berk’s work has been shown in numerous galleries in Maine and New England. In 2009, she was chosen for a Percent for Art project at the Mount View Elementary School in Thorndike. Berk’s work has been included in the 2004 and 2008 Center for Maine Contemporary Art juried biennial exhibitions.

Paintings may be purchased directly from the artist during the exhibition. A portion of the proceeds from sales of art will be retained by the Miles Art Committee, one of the branches of the Miles Memorial Hospital League, to ensure that new original art is routinely purchased for rooms at the hospital.
