Berkshire Art Association's "RE*Fresh" Opens Oct. 7
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Art Association opens its biennial show, RE*Fresh, on Oct. 7
The show runs from 5 to 8 p.m. during Pittsfield’s monthly First Fridays Artswalk. An Awards Reception will be held Saturday, Oct. 8 from 3 to 5 p.m, and show will be on display through November 26 at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts.
RE*Fresh speaks of the challenges, inspirations and new possibilities presented over the past two years. These issues are expressed and explored by 36 artists from the Northeast United States.
In the juried show, 44 works including paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and graphic design will be presented, offering wide-ranging interpretations of the theme.
Jurors for the exhibit are Kinney Freylinguysen, artist and director of the Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio, Lenox, Massachusetts, and Genevieve Gaignard, a multi-disciplinary artist based in Los Angeles and Massachusetts.

From direct messaging to thoughtful reflections to abstract visual feasts, this show is a refreshing presentation of the creativity and talent of our art community. It has been my utter pleasure and absolute privilege to have been a part of it," said Sean McCusker, Berkshire Art Association Assistant Treasurer.
