We’ve spent many a blog post waxing poetic over the amazing diversity of cultural events here in the Berkshires, and the phenomenal talents who call this region home—from musicians to writers, actors, directors, and visual artists. On July 10, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., a group of painters, photographers, collage artists, and printmakers will get their moment in the colorful summer sunset at the Barn Gallery at Stonover Farm’s opening of Landscapes, Farmscapes, Cityscapes, Mindscapes.
Suky Werman, Stonover co-owner and Barn Gallery curator, says, “I’m always curious about the different ways artists investigate and interpret their environment—the strokes they use, the color they use, the lenses they use, the perspective they take—and how much is imagined and how much is representational.” So for this exhibit, she brought together a collection of artistic “escapes,” as interpreted by some very distinctive artists, including Maggie Mailer, Cynthia Wick, Rob MacInnis, Mike Metzger, Mike Glier, and Lisa Breslow.
Landscapes, Farmscapes, Cityscapes, Mindscapes runs through Labor Day, and a portion of sale proceeds will benefit another one of our favorite local organizations, IS183 Art School of the Berkshires. Join us at the free opening at the Barn Gallery on July 10, or be sure to visit the show this summer. And stay tuned right here on Fresh American as we get to know some of the participating artists.
