'Paintings' Exhibit on Display
Feb 24, 2010

"Paintings," an exhibit by Helga S. Orthofer in memoriam of John Kaiser, will be on display in the Koussevitzky Art Gallery at Berkshire Community College from Monday, March 8, through Friday, April 23.  For a sample of the exhibit, click here.

Orthofer was born in Vienna, the daughter of an architect. She first decided to follow in his footsteps, specializing in exhibition design. She worked with major museums and galleries in the United States and Europe. She then went on to fulfill a lifetime ambition to become a professional still-life painter. Furthering her European studies, she enrolled at the National Academy in New York. Living on Gramercy Park, she became an active member of the National Arts Club, and was instrumental in founding the Photo Committee in the 1980s and, as Chair of the Exhibitions Committee, bringing noteworthy artists and exhibitions to the club. Orthofer has participated in numerous group shows and has had several successful one-artist shows in Massachusetts, New York and China. She is widely collected internationally.

Orthofer will discuss the exhibit Wednesday, April 21, at noon in K-116. Forum credit is available for BCC students attending the discussion.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The gallery is located in BCC's Koussevitzky Arts Center. Gallery hours are from 9 to 5, Monday through Friday.
