Openings: Pittsfield Contemporary Art Show

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsCultural correspondent Bess Hochstein reports: It felt a little bit like Brooklyn in the Berkshires on Saturday, July 25, as Pittsfield Contemporary opened its second annual show of work by artists living and/or working in Pittsfield.  The city’s art crowd, in all its hatted and tatted splendor, filled The Lichtenstein Center for the Arts to celebrate the city’s cultural renaissance and enjoy a smorgasbord of delicacies from Brix Wine Bar.  Juried by Maria Mingalone, Berkshire Museum’s director of interpretation, Art in America contributing editor Carol Diehl, and Kathleen Gilrain, executive director of the New York City arts organization Smack Mellon,  the wide-ranging show in multiple media will remain on exhibit through August 29. Just don’t expect pianist Michael Gilbert to show up and tickle the ivories, as he did on a whim during the opening.
