Topography: Memory and Time Oil Paintings by Patricia Romeo
January 17 – February 24
Berkshire County is a beautiful, serene part of Massachusetts and many of the towns that make up the northern part of Berkshire County have been experiencing urban change and renewal for decades. As a form of inspiration, Ashland resident Patricia Romeo has chosen to depict art based on her memories of the three places that she has lived in the Berkshires; North Adams, Adams, and Williamstown. By using color and shape and imagination, she reconstructs on canvas her memories of her home towns both past and present. As the town- and landscape of Berkshire County slowly changes over time, traces of history are still evident and can be found through the imagination of this one artist’s memories.
