A Double-Header Season Opener at Ferrin Gallery

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Cultural correspondent Bess Hochstein reports from Pittsfield: As if there were any question, Leslie Ferrin has proven beyond doubt that she’s the most energetic art dealer in the Berkshires. On Wednesday, April 7 she and business partner Donald Clark hosted a reception for Lenox artist Paul Graubard, whose colorful, folkloric paintings comprise his solo show, Stories from the Bible and Other Places. Three days later, she hosted the opening reception for The Things They Left Behind, a dual-artist show of ceramic sculpture by Michael Boroneic  and Gerit Grimm, who shared a winter residency at Ferrin’s Project Art work/live space in Cummington, MA.  What’s next? A discussion/reception on April 21 with octogenarian artist John Stritch about his show Berkshires. The Land. The Music; and one of her monthly Dish & Dine evenings on April 23 offering local fare (by chef John Dudek of Bascom Lodge) served on locally made dishes (by Mary Ann Davis) to accompany a topical discussion with multimedia artist Ven Voisey and Berkshire Museum executive director Stuart Chase (left with Ferrin) on the eve of Voisey’s becoming the second artist-in-residence at the Museum. Meanwhile, Ferrin is raising two teenagers and maintaing a hectic travel schedule: she curated The Hermaphrodites, an exceptionally well reviewed show at Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia; she’s presenting at SOFA New York this week, and she’s preparing for Art Chicago .
