Nov 9, 2007 - INCREDIBLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS!
Watch this blog - we're about to post scads of new pages and images to showcase Elizabeth's major projects and commissions of 2007!

Berrien completed and installed her site-specific installation at the NPS Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Center. Upon arrival, she discovered that the design specs for the pair of 15-ft bridges had been changed - to 13.5-ft bridges! Elizabeth saved the day by expertly trimming and re-weaving the arches to fit... to the relief and satisfaction of the project manager and site designer.

While already creating the Blue Ridge collection on a rush schedule, Elizabeth Berrien was contacted by BBDO, the world's 4th largest ad agency, and commisioned to design a trio of 2D group images - to be projected onto a 4-story wall in Los Angeles, as an ad campaign for BBC World News. The 2-D sculpture series is under consideration as a Clio contender.

Designers of upscale hotels and shopping centers in the US, Europe and Asia are inquiring about collections of site-specific wire sculptures for new developments.

Elizabeth Berrien is currently completing a variation of her 2D wire wall art design, "Healing the Earth", for site specific installation at an East Coast school building.

The artist is currently exhibiting at Woodland Grove Gallery and Mill Pond Gallery in Long Grove, IL through Nov/Dec.

She will be a guest panelist at LosCon 45 on Thanksgiving weekend - and is looking forward to renewing friendships within the realm of fantasy and science fiction.

MARCH 30, 2007 - ANOTHER MAJOR COMMISSION!
Elizabeth Berrien has been awarded a commission to create wire sculptures for the National Parks Service. The $64,690.00 project, which includes a trio of Hawks in Flight and a pair of 15 x 9ft bridge arches, will take approximately 4 to 5 months for Berrien to complete and install.

As she prepares to begin the NPS project, Berrien is completing her current workload of private and public commissions, including a life-size Pacific Bottlenose Dolphin for a natural history museum. She is also fulfilling wire sculpture orders for Woodland Grove Gallery of Long Grove, IL and The Highlight Gallery in Mendocino, CA, and is reviewing inquiries from "green" architects regarding wire sculpture for public, private and corporate environnments.

These commitments indicate that by mid-summer, there may be a shortage of Berrien wire sculpture and an associated rise in prices. Clients who reserve a wire sculpture commission before June may still do so at current prices.

Defining Wire Sculpture
It's shocking... the term "wire sculpture" cannot be found in conventional or online dictionaries! To fulfill the need, Elizabeth Berrien wrote the current standard Definition of Wire Sculpture in 1995.

NEW! Wire Wall Art & Murals
Art collectors let us know what they want... and it's MORE 2-D wire sculpture for their walls! Wire murals look as fantastic on garden walls as they do in corporate lobbies and public spaces.

Some clients order intricate, fine wire wall art small enough to frame - others want a bold statement for the mantel or entry way. This Hawk Head could be created as life-sized 2D wire wall sculpture, or enlarged to eight feet high... or three stories high! Learn more...
