Feet first!
Heart first!

It doesn’t really matter which way you jump, but JUMP IN!

From 5:30-8pm on Friday, September 4, the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts at 28 Renne Ave., Pittsfield, Mass. hosts the opening reception for the group exhibition, “Jump In!,” celebrating water in the landscape.

Co-sponsored by the yet-to-be-built Housatonic River Museum, the exhibition features photographs, paintings, drawings, sculpture, writing and video inspired by the waters of the region.

“Jump In!” also serves as the premiere of “A Sound Map of the Housatonic River,” a commissioned sound installation by internationally acclaimed sound artist/musician Annea Lockwood.

Nearly two dozen other artists are represented in the exhibition, including Tim Prentice, Fern Leslie, Kevin Sprague, Laurie McLeod, Suzanne Howe-Stevens, Peter Kitchell, Michael Boroniec, Monika Pizzichemi and Leila Daw.

Water-related events and entertainment will compliment the artful offerings at the gallery.

The reception is free and open to the public. The exhibition will remain on view through Saturday, October 31.
