Berkshire Museum invited guest artist Maggie Mailer to inventively organize an exhibition that features paintings, photography, and prints from the Berkshire Museum’s permanent collection.

The resulting exhibition, "Wink: Pairings from the Berkshire Museum’s Collections," is the interpretive brainchild of Mailer, who chose to bring pairs of artworks together in heretofore unrealized relationships.

The exhibition opens Friday, Oct. 12, and remains on view through early spring.

"Wink" pairs paintings in a way that illuminates surprising shared elements found in common between two works of art. Although the paintings in each pair will be from different eras and genres, Mailer finds connections via composition, pattern, theme, attitude, or color.
