“The Journey III” Art Exhibition (“El viaje III”)
Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. has partnered with Katunemo: Art & Healing to bring “The Journey III”, an exhibition featuring the work of fifteen artists from different countries in Latin America and Europe, to their conference room at 33 Dunham Mall for one-night only, Friday, October 6, from 5 to 8 pm.
The featured artists are Sheila Franco, David Melchor, Derly Toloza, Diana Rodriguez, Juanita Latorre Silva, Nicole Herasme, Shelsy Rodriguez, Thayna Dias, Estiven Sosa, Micaela Soasti, Valentina Morales, Marina Dominguez, Angie Soasti, Clara Guatta, and Claire Saussol.
The artists will share about their culture, language, traditions, roots and different perspectives about life. These artists wish to honor their heritage, where they come from, and what they offer to the Berkshire community.
Katunemo: Art & Healing is a space where artists empower and support one another to take their art to the next level. They also seek to transmute energy to encourage and motivate healing through different artistic tools, not only for the artist but also for the rest of the community.
“The Journey III” is brought to you in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month.
Lucia’s Latin Kitchen will be selling food outside on Dunham Mall from 5 to 8 pm.
Also in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, 23 year-old artist Nicole Herasme will demonstrate her painting process at Sotille Park, 200 North Street. This free live painting demonstration will be from 5 to 7 pm during the October 6 First Fridays Artswalk, rain or shine.
Nicole Herasme was born in a small town in Santiago de los caballeros Dominican Republic, and moved to the United States when she was 19 looking for better opportunities. She has recently found a great passion for photography and modeling, dedicated to learning and improving in these branches. She enjoys expressing her emotions through art such as painting, singing, dancing and poetry. Since she was little, she has felt called to help the people around her, that is why one of her goals is to help spread freedom of expression through art and healing in the Berkshires.
El viaje III será una exposición sobre el trabajo de más de quince artistas de diferentes países de América Latina y Europa. Compartirán sobre su cultura, idioma, tradiciones, raíces y diferentes perspectivas sobre la vida. Como artistas quieren honrar su herencia, de dónde vienen y qué ofrecen a la comunidad de Berkshire como hispanos.
