Downstreet Art is in full swing in downtown North Adams.  While MASS MoCA has a gallery which features original art for the third chapter of George Cochrane’s Long Time Gone and there’s a spectacular space on Main Street designed by Kidspace artist Matt Bua and created by local students, there are many other galleries.  We’ll be spotlighting one here each week hoping to be able to cover them all by October.

This week, we stopped by 28 Holden Street (the gallery just next door to the Cochrane space) which has a show called Works and Days by Mark W. Mulherrin.  This survey of 39 years of Mark’s work is presented in three parts, you only have a few more days to see the first part, the second part opens on July 30.  (There are many things happening on the evening of July 30, openings, performances and the like, so its a good time to visit if you haven’t yet.)

The first part of Mark’s show was curated by our good friend David Lachman whose you might recognize from our ad campaign).  Chuck Webster curates the second part while Rich Remsberg does the third.

The exhibition consists of works on paper, paintings, installations and text.  Mark’s  work is eclectic — it explores the various consolations of myth, the uses of wit, the mirror of the archaic, what breaks us and what heals.
