EXHIBIT RECEPTION
North Adams, 6:30-9 p.m.
Outside at 10 Ashland St. presents an installation of new work by Australian artist Elizabeth Corkery. "Pieces from Pictures" generates a symbiotic relationship between cinematic sequence and sculptural ensemble, using the gallery as a mechanism for installation to present ideas of duration and simultaneity. The piece builds on Corkery’s collective body of work that has explored the traditional boundaries between prints/architecture, surface/depth, image/matter, while making more explicit the relation between spatial perception, bodily motion and perceived passages of time. The exhibit runs through Aug. 21.

JOAN OSBORNE SINGS BOB DYLAN
North Adams, 8 p.m.
“Like Bonnie Raitt, a musician to whom she has often been compared, Ms. Obsborne is a fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer-songwriter who is allergic to traditional pop sentimentality, though hardly devoid of feeling… She treats Mr. Dylan as fellow troubadour and roustabout, inventing the rules while traveling along an endless road. Mr. Dylan’s songs are so deeply ingrained in the culture, it’s a wonder more singers haven’t devoted entire concerts to his songs.” (The New York Times) We’ll be outside with this beloved talent for a concert of our favorite songs. MASS MoCA, North Adams
