BerkshireNow: Empty Set Projects
February 13 through May 31, 2015
The inaugural BerkshireNow exhibition, curated by Maria Mingalone, features Pittsfield-based artists Michael McKay, Monika Pizzichemi, and Marcel Bova, who comprise Empty Set Projects. Pizzichemi is a multi-media artist working in photography and mixed-media assemblage. McKay is a painter, printmaker, and mixed media artist; he creates the witty supermarket-style posters displayed in the windows of the Empty Set Project Space in downtown Pittsfield. Bova’s works include paintings, prints, signs, and mixed media.
BerkshireNow is the new Berkshire Museum exhibition program designed to showcase the work of artists living in the Berkshires. Selection is by invitation from the Museum, based on alignment with the Museum’s mission and existing exhibitions programming. Artists eligible for BerkshireNow exhibits include, but are not limited to, those working in experimental, 2D, 3D and new media, craft, photographers, and graphic designers. BerkshireNow exhibits include solo and group shows curated by the Museum, as well as group shows organized by art organizations.
Outfitting the nine-hundred-square-foot gallery space for the new exhibition series was made possible in part by a grant from the Pittsfield Cultural Council.
