Deeper Than The Skin Opening Reception
Sunday, October 9, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This year’s theme is “Deeper Than The Skin,” is inspired by a lyric from Greg Greenway and Reggie Harris’ musical presentation about race relations that they will perform in conjunction with the exhibit on Sunday, October 9 at 2:00pm. The guest juror is Paula Bernay, co-owner and director of Bernay Fine Art in Great Barrington, MA.
