Fluvial: adj. of or found in a river
Terra: n. land or territory

"Central Oklahoma’s iron rich red earth poised against a vast blue sky is a unique and striking characteristic of this region.  As I traveled west from Missouri into Oklahoma earlier this year I was captivated by the richness of the red and copper colored dirt cascading across the land and rushing through the rivers that I crossed.  As an interdisciplinary artist, I create works that resonate with the materiality and rhythms of the natural world. Throughout my creative process I employ techniques that crisscross the boundaries of contemporary craft, sculpture, and installation. Fluvial terra is a place-based exhibition utilizing local soil and plant fibers to create interpretations of the landscape and invasive flora found in Oklahoma..." - Megan Singleton

Kelly Campbell Berry was born in 1964 in Gilbert, AZ and has lived in Bethel Acres, OK since 1989. She was raised by two artistic parents and has always had an appreciation for the arts. In 2006, the Berry family lost their home to fire. Two antique books were salvaged from the rubble. In her desire to resurrect the beauty in the books, her first book sculpture was born. Since then, Kelly has been featured in many magazines and publications as well as blogged around the world. Most of her work is commissioned book sculptures and she has had clients from Brazil, England, Ireland, Italy, Canada, Hungary, Singapore, Germany, and across the United States.

"Being a scarred woman, I seem to gravitate toward the damaged and discarded... Now I search out the illustrated books headed to the waste bin and give them a new way of telling their story. After repairing or rebinding, I cut away all but the illustrations. The end result is bringing the book to life; telling the story visually. I never know what a sculpture will look like when I start. Each book seems to transform itself. I've had many people accuse me of destroying a good book. But I beg to differ.  No good book should go to waste. No matter how scarred, it still has a story to tell."
