Bascom Lodge, Melville & Mount Greylock Talk

Ralph Brill, of the Brill Gallery in North Adams, together with painter Arthur Yanoff and photographer Kay Canavino will give a presentation to share their knowledge of the impact that Mount Greylock and the Berkshire countryside had on Herman Melville and his writing of literary masterpiece ‘Moby-Dick’.

This dynamic team has collaborated on the traveling exhibition “Reflections on Melville” now on view at the Arrowhead Museum in Pittsfield (Melville’s Berkshire home) as well as the Eclipse Mill Gallery.

The talk is FREE and all are welcome!

We will also be dining at 7:00 pm following the talk.
If you would like to stay for dinner, please call (413.743 1591) as reservations and a fee, are required.

“‘Reflections on Melville’ retraces the author’s steps through a lens unique to these artists and Berkshire County. With photography and contemporary art, Moby-Dick and Herman Melville are interpreted like they’ve never been before. The artists spent their time searching for their own elusive whale, and found him in places they never imagined.” –Ralph Brill, Director
