Hotel on North presents "Jazz Visions II" by Marguerite Bride

Pittsfield, Massachusetts 01201, United States

Created By: Downtown Pittsfield, Inc.


Hotel on North, 297 North Street, will feature "Jazz Visions II" by Marguerite Bride through the end of May. Stop by during the First Fridays Artswalk on May 3, 5 to 8 pm.

Marguerite Bride has been a co-partner with her husband Ed in living a jazz infused life since they met and married in the late 60s. In fact, their first dates were the Newport Jazz Festivals, so the signs were written on the walls way back then. It seemed only natural that her painting career would eventually become jazz infused as well.

Some of these paintings were first introduced in 2016 during the first "Jazz Visions" exhibit, a duo painting/photography exhibit which included the fine art jazz photography of Lee Everett.

There are approximately 25 paintings in this exhibit, watercolors on paper and canvas, plus a few fine art reproductions. The collection of paintings has since expanded to include portraits of known and loved jazz greats (Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Phil Woods, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, and others), local and famous haunts (Mission, The Apollo, Bohemian Cavers, Cotton Club) and even paintings of many of our local talented jazz musicians.

Additionally, first time offered, the original painting called “The Master’s Hands” personally signed by Dave Brubeck during his last visit to the Berkshires is included in this show. The profits from the sale of this painting will benefit Berkshires Jazz, Inc.
