On Exhibit - A river's past and its future
Hoosic River figures prominently at North Adams gallery space
Joanna Gabler, a well-known Berkshire County artist, has teamed up with The Hoosic River Revival, an organization dedicated to the restoration of the Hoosic River in North Adams, for an exhibit of her photographs at North Adams Downstreet Art's C Gallery at 33 Main St. in North Adams now through Aug. 23.
Gabler's primary subject area is photographs of the Hoosic River which she manipulates into strikingly beautiful mandala-like creations.
The River Revival exhibit is titled "Our River: Discovering Our Past/Imagining Our Future." The section titled "Imagining our Future" features the design of the River Revival's pilot project on the South Branch along Noel Field. In the new design, the river will meander within the athletic fields, which have been slightly reconfigured to embrace the river so that people will be able to get into the river or they might use the sand bar as a landing point for paddling up or down river.
The gallery is open Wednesdays through Sundays.
