Article from Somerville Journal: Gallery Bershad has NEW YORK in "mind"


Peter Hendrick was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1963 and spent most of his youth in the southern city of Cork. Hendrick eventually moved to London to study at the Chelsea School of Art, where he received his BA with honors in sculpture. Hendrick holds his MFA from Hunter College, in New York City, where he resides when not en route to Ireland.

Hendrick's photo-installation Other World was featured in a 1999 solo exhibition at the Temple Bar Gallery in Dublin. His Shadows of the American Dream series was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Triskel Arts Centre in Cork in 1998. Hendrick's photography and installations have been included in New York area group exhibitions at: The Bronx Museum, The Abrons Art Center, HereArt Gallery, and twice at White Columns. Additional international venues where he has exhibited work include: El Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas, Argentina, Art '90 International and 'Action=Life', both in London.

In 1996, Hendrick was invited by the Fire Station Artists' Residency to do a six month residency with the Temple Bar Gallery Project Studio in Dublin. He was awarded the Art Matters Inc. Fellowship in 1994 and the J.M. Smurfit Foundation Award in 1991.
