“Melville and Hawthorne, Regional Nature”, Exhibition Opening at Eclipse Mill Gallery

Dates: June 24-July 24
Eclipse Mill – Studio 109, 243 Union Street
North Adams, MA 01247-0786

In 2010 Brill Gallery started a collaboration with Great Barrington based Abstract Painter Arthur Yanoff and Photographer Kay Canavino, who is based in Adams, MA. Yanoff wanted to tell the story of Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Monument Mountain through Photographs and Paintings.

The exhibition, composed by 20 Photographs and Paintings, explores the relationships of Herman Melville to Arrowhead – his farm home in Pittsfield and to the surrounding country side. It also explores the personal and literary influences of Nathaniel Hawthorne on Melville and his vision of a Whale from the shape of Mount Greylock in winter.
