WordXWord: Poets Creating Conversation | Home in America
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
WordXWord: Poets Creating Conversation | Home in America

By sharing personal stories, observations, moments of inspiration, and hope, we look to create a broad poetic tapestry with a goal that the resulting “conversation” between creative voices will make us stronger and help us find a way forward.

Home in America: For better or worse, there is no place like home (unless you don’t have one). Poets help put a roof on it.

Free and open to the community.

First Fridays Artswalk
Feb 1 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
First Fridays Artswalk

Celebrate the opening of Their Stories: Oral Histories from the NAACP and BerkshireNow: Pat Hogan free of charge during Pittsfield’s February First Fridays Artswalk!

On the second floor, visitors to Their Stories: Oral Histories from the NAACP are invited to explore the history of African Americans in the Berkshires and hear compelling stories from today as recorded by leaders from the local African-American community and the NAACP Berkshire chapter. This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Housatonic Heritage Oral History Center at Berkshire Community College.

Downstairs, fourteen works by local artist Pat Hogan are on display in BerkshireNow: Pat Hogan. This solo exhibition manifests chaos and order – things lost and found – through the artist’s masterful use of texture, color, and collage. Hogan’s mixed-media painting Winter, which won Best in Show in 2018’s Art of the Hills exhibition is included in this exemplary solo show.

Artist Pat Hogan and collaborators on Their Stories will be present to celebrate the opening of each exhibition.

Free and open to the community as part of First Fridays Artswalk.
