Jason Bowman. Director, College Re-Entry at Fountain House.

I have worked with Bernard on and off for over a decade on various art installations and projects. Not only is Bernie a brilliant illustrator and artist, he is one of the best curators I have ever worked with. He has a keen eye and understands how to place and install both solo and group exhibitions while respecting each individual art piece. Bernie is also very technical and understands tools and techniques needed to install an exhibition. He is energetic and works quickly without sacrificing quality. New York

Johan Wahlstrom. Artist at Johan Wahlstrom.

I have been exhibited in shows such as Elements in Red curated by Bernard. He is a highly skilled curator that has the right eye for what to bring together in an exhibition, the use of space and how to draw the viewers into the show where a story and concept is told through the art. It is not easy to do good curatorial work but Bernard is an outstanding curator that I am more than happy to recommend. - Johan Wahlstrom, New York.
