The Artful Mind Gallery is having a reception on Saturday, June 23rd 4-7pm. Since its opening in May, there have been several artists added to the roster and many of the works of art have been swapped out for the new month. This Saturday is a great chance to come see the space, artists, and new work. A lot of the artists will be there too, so this is a great chance to meet the creatives and pick their brains.
Following is the press release with opening and reception details:
The Artful Mind Gallery, located at 22 Walker Street in Lenox, MA that opens May 1, 2018 will showcase an enthusiastic and finely tuned professional and passionate group of seventeen artists. About her decision to bring these artists together in this particular location, Curator Harryet Puritzman explains that, “if the space weren’t as beautiful and complimentary for artists’ work to be seen and swooned over, then I would never have considered taking on this very special project,” a summer gallery space in the heart of Lenox.
The community and its visitors will e treated to the work of, Tyler Blodgett, Linda Clayton, Marguerite Bride, Roselle Chartock, Robert Forte, Kris Galli, Susan Geller, Ghetta Hirsch, Karen S. Jacobs, Ernie Kirk, Carolyn Newberger, Bruce Panock, Jennifer Pazienza, Edward Pelkey, Janet Pumphrey, Wendy Rabinowitz, Mary Carol Rudin, Sean McCusker, JoAnne Spies, Janine Strong, Scott Taylor, Robert U. Taylor and Robert Wilk.
For 26 years Harryet, an artist in her own right, has promoted Berkshire arts and artists in The Artful Mind Magazine, her print and online publication. This summer, the creation of The Artful Mind Gallery is her way to give a gift back to artists whose work she’s admired and has been inspired by over the years and to satisfy her belief that, “seeing art face to face and not only in print, or on the internet surely brings an overwhelming amount of joy. That is why I am devoting my summer to representing art and artists to those who want to experience art directly, gallery visitors who feel art is a joyful gift that lasts a lifetime.”
During the summer the historic town of Lenox attracts a great number of appreciative and fun-loving people from all over the world. In the front window, throughout the interior space and in its back garden, The Artful Mind Gallery will exhibit works in oils, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, photography, and sculpture.
In addition to the collective stories these artists and their artworks tell, each has their own. Stories that shed light on and invite us into states of mind and being, an appreciation and concern for nature, or a location we all know and love, reflections on life, deep passionate and emotional thoughts, or captured random moments. Spiritual, physical, political and poetic worlds will shine from these walls and in the garden, a bountiful array of art meant to engage, challenge and educate all ages.
The opening reception is on Saturday, June 23, 4-7pm. For more information, please email the gallery at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone: 413.854.4400. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Sunday, 12-5pm and Mondays by appointment. Come in for a Nespresso and enjoy the art!
