Vesica Piscis by Joe Goodwin,

The Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield will present one of the best known Berkshire-based artists from the LGBTQ community, Joe Goodwin, in a solo show titled Liminal Artifacts: Recent Paintings in the Museum’s Ellen Crane Memorial Room from Saturday (April 2) through Sunday, June 19. An opening reception will be held from 5-7pm on Saturday. Tickets are $10; $5 children; FREE members. Please RSVP to 413.443.7171 ext. 313.

Goodwin’s abstract paintings appear ethereal, enigmatic and reflective, in atmospheric images that reference natural phenomena. Goodwin works in acrylic paint that he mixes from dry pigments and polymer emulsions, applied in an innovative layered process that involves additives such as marble dust and silica. The meticulous layering of paint and texture produces a distinctive sense of depth in the paintings.

Mara Superior: A Swan's Wedding Day

Mara Superior: A Swan's Wedding Day

As we mentioned before, we had fun at Pittsfield’s Third Thursday last week, but the best part of the day was finally making it to the Leslie Ferrin Gallery, which we had heard so much about but never visited.

The current exhibit showcases Pittsfield artist Joe Goodwin’s glowing abstract acrylic paintings and Lucy Feller’s evocative “Wish You Were Near” postcard series, but the bright and spacious gallery has room for both solo exhibitions and separate sections for ceramics works, ceramic teapots, and individual works.
