North Adams: Berkshire Eagle Gallery to exhibit works by former editor
An opening reception for Grier Horner’s exhibit, "Facing the Street," will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at the Berkshire Eagle Gallery, 85 Main St.
The show, which is part of DownStreet Art, features three large-scale photographs by the Pittsfield-based artist.
Horner, who worked for both the Berkshire Eagle and North Adams Transcript, was the Eagle’s associate editor from 1981 to 1997.
"At 62, I started painting full time. Nineteen years and more than 500 paintings later, I am still immersed in that second career," Horner said of his career as an artist. "In the last few years I’ve branched out into computer-manipulated photography."
Horner, who will celebrate his 79th birthday on June 30, will show three large-scale photo-manipulations in the windows of the Berkshire Eagle’s North County office.
His work will be on display through the end of July.
