North Adams, MA-- Downstreet Art presents Local Color, an exhibition showcasing work from 7 artists participating in the North Adams Project, part of MASS MoCA's Assets for Artists program, a local initiative that helps artists to build their creative practices. Local Color refers to the distinctive features or personality of a particular place as well as being a painting term, so it seems a fitting name for a group show of relocated artists, all drawn to North Adams’ vibrant artistic community. The exhibition will feature the works of Max Spitzer, Joshua Harriman, Sarah Pike, Michelle Daly, Megan Tamas, Jim Peters and Kathline Carr. The opening reception will take place during the DownStreet Art Thursday celebration, from 6-8pm and will run from July 28 th to August 21 st .
