The estate of artist Berenice D’Vorzon, who died in 2014 at 82, donated to the University a collection of her large-scale gestural paintings, which are now on display throughout the Loyola Science Center.

Darlene Miller-Lanning, Ph.D., director of the Hope Horn Gallery, oversaw the installation of the collection in January.

D’Vorzon’s career spanned five decades of art styles and, Dr. Miller- Lanning said, contained many themes, such as the environment and nature, feminism and women’s contributions to the arts, and culture and spirituality.

“Most of my work deals with water images and the experience of being in nature,” D’Vorzon has said. “Environmental concerns are also part of the work, which is especially pertinent in these days of ecological crisis. Southern swamps, Long Island wetlands, Northern ice, the River Li in China, coral reefs and jungles in the Caribbean ... are some of my investigations.”

D’Vorzon’s work has been exhibited in U.S. galleries and museums and abroad, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.

D’Vorzon, a New York City-area native, also taught studio art at Wilkes University for 20 years and was Dr. Miller-Lanning’s first-year adviser.
