The Berkshire Art Museum opens its sixth season by dipping into dark matter — art that's slightly twisted, disturbing, tortured, sorrowful, disastrous and, well, dark.

Berkshire Jazz and Mayor Linda Tyer honored the winners of the 12th annual student art contest on Tuesday morning.
The annual event is organized by art teacher Colleen Quinn at Pittsfield High School and asks students to create jazz-inspired pieces of work. Sophia Nguyen took home this year's first prize, Megan Francoeur took home second, and Antonia Bedard Torres came in third.
Tobin and Laura Thompson, the director of education, announced the winners of the invitational at a party with the Drury High jazz band in the Hunter Center that followed the public reception on Friday night.
