Michael Bergt is an internationally recognized figurative artist known for his mastery of a variety of media, from his renowned egg tempera paintings and pencil drawings to bronze sculpture.  In his work, our collective human story is palpable in the vulnerability of each of his subjects.  Ambiguity is a central tenant in his process and allows for reflection on the paradoxes of the human condition.  Using diverse sources of visual cultures from the East to the West, Bergt's work unites the two major themes of figurative art, the sensual and the spiritual into works of delicate mastery.


Bergt has shown his work nationally and internationally for over thirty years in numerous solo and group museum exhibitions including: the  the Arnot Museum, Elmira, New York; Belvedere Place, Vienna, Austria; Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico; de Young Museum, San Francisco, California; the Frye Art Museum, Seattle, Washinging; The Evansville Museum of Arts and Sciences, Evansville, Indiana; and Kalmazoo Institute of Art, Kalamazoo, Michigan. Michael Bergt's paintings and sculptures have been featured in a multitude of publications, and have won numerous awards both domestically and abroad. His work is held in countless public and private collections, among them the: Fons D'Art del Diari Avui, Barcelona, Spain; de Young Museum, San Francisco, California; Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, New York; Frye Art Museum, Seattle, Washington; The Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas; and California Palace of the Legion of Honor; San Francisco, California.
