Berkshire County: Annual CATA art show at two locations


Community Access to the Arts will present "I Am a Part of Art," a celebration of creativity and inclusion that features paintings, drawings, and sculpture created by CATA artists with disabilities. This summer, the annual art show will expand to two locations.

The first exhibit will hang at the historic Lichtenstein Center for the Arts, 28 Renne Ave., Pittsfield, through July 31. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 14.

CATA will also showcase artwork at the Clark Art Institute's Lunder Center at Stone Hill at 227 South St., Williamstown, through Aug. 14. A Meet the Artists event will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 20.

Works are professionally matted and framed, and all pieces are for sale, with proceeds supporting commissions for individual artists.

This annual exhibit is the culmination of more than 500 visual arts workshops that CATA holds throughout the year in day programs, residences, schools, elder care settings, and in the CATA Studio.
