MCLA’S GALLERY 51 ANNOUNCES ‘CURA TE IPSUM’ AS THE NEXT WINDOW EXHIBITION AT 49 MAIN ST.


 
Nov. 30, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, MASS.  – Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts’ (MCLA) Berkshire Cultural Resource Center (BCRC) announces that “Cura te Ipsum” by Kaliegh Hayes ’19 will be the next window gallery exhibition at 49 Main St., beginning on Thursday, Dec. 6.

An opening reception, to be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the 49 Main St. space, will immediately be followed by an open yoga session with Ellen Dilthy. This event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition is part of MCLA’s Senior Art Project, the capstone course for art majors. The Senior Art Project is a three-credit course offered to senior art majors, which allows them develop a body of work and to build an artist portfolio.

This semester, Hayes explored the concept of self-care and basic practices for all types of people to use. “The intention of my artwork,” Hayes said, “is to start a conversation about self care.” By using paint on canvas, the body of work discusses mental and physical self-care in primary practices.

“We are very excited to partner with Kaliegh Hayes to present her artwork and provide a venue for a reflection on self-care, especially as we enter into the end of the semester and holiday season – a time which typically increases stress for students and non-students alike,” said Michelle Daly, BCRC director.

“Cura te Ipsum” will remain on display through Jan. 21, 2019.

The Window Gallery at 49 Main is a flexible exhibition space designed to engage the public and local artistic community and is programmed by the BCRC.
