Louise Berliner is a word wrestler and thread twister.

She makes sculptures of words that sometimes look like poems or novels, and beings made of waxed linen, misc. threads and fabrics.

Her writing has appeared in VQR, Porter Gulch Review, Ibbetson Review, The Mom Egg, Sacred Fire and various chapbook collections. Her first book, Texas Guinan, Queen of the Night Clubs, written in part thanks to an NEH grant, is a biography of a Roaring ‘20s night club hostess famous for saying “Hello, Suckers!”

Her sculptures have been most recently in group shows at the Maud Morgan Arts Center (“Images of Grief and Healing”),the Nave Gallery Annex (“Vessels”), and the Umbrella (“Migrations”).


She has a studio at the Umbrella in Concord, Massachusetts.
