Painter Nick Patten will be featured in “Solo Show” at the Harrison Gallery in Williamstown, Mass. Featuring his haunting paintings of uninhabited rooms, the exhibition will run through Monday, August 27, and there will be an opening reception with the artist from 5-7pm on Saturday, August 1.

The Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield, Mass. is hosting a pair of one-person ceramic sculptor exhibits – Chris Antemann‘s “Battle of the Britches” and Jason Walker‘s “Human Made Wild.” Both exhibits run through Sunday, September 12, and there will be an opening reception with the artists from 4-6pm on Saturday, August 1.

Be Here Now: A Truth Story

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

I really love Douglass Truth‘s paintings.

But I have absolutely no idea what to expect from his performance of “A Pittsfield Story” at the Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield, Mass. at 9pm Thursday, July 16. In fact, I don’t even know whether it’s actually his performance at all.

“A Pittsfield Story” is, in fact, credited to Dorothy Truth, Douglass’ twin sister, with whom the painter has readily acknowledged an “on-and-off friendship.”

Here’s how Douglass describes the performance:

“A tale of two twins (I guess that’s redundant) growing up in Pittsfield in the 1950s…

One, an accomplished artist, a favorite son of both his family and his hometown.

The other, an outcast, a black sheep, a troublemaker.
She works in a cafeteria and wears a hairnet.

She’s not happy about it.”

And, yes, by now I am thoroughly intrigued…

Admission is free, but reservations are suggested, as seating is limited.
