September First Fridays Artswalk
, Pittsfield, Massachusetts
For the month of September, First Fridays Artswalk will encompass a variety of outdoor locations perfect for a social distanced walk around the downtown, as well as 3 indoor locations.
Enjoy indoor and outdoor art shows, PHS student art, and 19 of Artscape's Pittsfield Paintboxes (including three new boxes) featuring work by over two dozen accomplished regional artists during the First Fridays Artswalk on Friday, September 4, 5 to 8 pm, and all month long. When participating in the September Artswalk, be sure to maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from other individuals and wear your mask. A map of all indoor and outdoor locations, including hours for the indoor shows, can be viewed at www.FirstFridaysArtswalk.com.
Beginning September 4, and continuing all month long, NUarts Studios and Gallery will display the artwork of at least 7 artists in the storefront windows along Union Street just across the street from Barrington Stage Company’s Mainstage. Participating artists include Karen S Jacobs, Caroline Kelley, Peggy Morse, Linda Petrocine, Sally Tiska Rice, and Marney Schorr.
The Marketplace Café, 53 North Street, will feature works by Philip Nommay. “Art has always been a passion of mine and finding a balance between the art on the street and what is in a museum has always been my goal,” says Nommay. “The two can coexist not only on their own, but together as well. Whether it’s gentle or abrasive strokes from a brush, or subtle or violent bursts from a spray can, each layer unleashes an emotion waiting to be seen to all who view it. Each individual takes something different, but all who see it take something all their own.” There will be an opening reception on Friday, September 4 from 5 to 8 pm.
Stop by The Lantern, 455 North Street, to view a brand-new mural by local artist Jesse Tobin McCauley, and then stop by The Funky Phoenix, 441 North Street, to view their original salvage art.
Hotel on North, 297 North Street, will feature Water, Land & Sky: A Berkshire Journey by Marita O’Dea Glodt through September 29, and Dottie’s Coffee Lounge, 444 North Street, will feature Home Work – The Universe - and Abstractions, with work by artists Richard Britell, Erika Larskaya, and Ashley Yang-Thompson through October.
The 3 new Pittsfield Paintboxes will be at the following locations:
TD Bank (Center Street and West Street Intersection): Deep Sea Magic by Michael Carty
Silvio O Conte Federal Building (Center Street and Columbus Ave Intersection): Power and Peace by Stefanie Quetti and artists from ROPE
First and Fenn Street Intersection: Strength, Love and Unity by Robert Trzcinka
All art exhibits are on display in participating venues throughout the month. For more information on First Fridays Artswalk and to view a listing and map of all participating artists and locations, visit www.FirstFridaysArtswalk.com.
